About Magnus Blended Scotch Whiskey
History of Magnus Whiskey
At Magnus, we pride ourselves on our rich history and heritage. Magnus Whiskey was first created in the scenic Scottish Highlands over a century ago. Our distillery, nestled amongst the rolling hills and picturesque landscapes, has been crafting exceptional whiskies since its establishment in 1878. It is this legacy, passed down through generations of master distillers, that gives Magnus its unparalleled quality and character.
In our pursuit of perfection, we adhere to traditional distillation methods that have been refined over the years. Our distillation process starts with the careful selection of the finest malted barley and grains. These are then mashed and fermented, allowing the natural sugars to release and transform into alcohol. The resulting wash is double distilled in copper pot stills, a practice that imparts a richness and depth of flavor to our whiskey. Finally, the spirit is aged in specially selected oak casks, allowing it to develop its distinct characteristics over time.
Unique Blend of Ingredients
At Magnus, it is the careful blending of different aged whiskies that sets us apart from the rest. Our master blenders artfully combine a variety of malt and grain whiskies, each aged to perfection, to create a harmonious and complex flavor profile. This meticulous blending process ensures that each bottle of Magnus Scotch Whiskey carries the unique stamp of our craftsmanship, showcasing our commitment to creating a superior and unforgettable drinking experience.
