This Tomatin is part of their new Five Virtues Series which the distillery explain 'The Five Virtues - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water - is a concept synonymous with the age-old processes and materials employed by our distillery men. Water feeds wood; wood sustains fire; fire gives life to earth; earth yields metal; metal gathers water; and the cycle continues ....
This bottling of Water, the fifth virtue, is represented by naturally pure and soft water from the Alt-Na-Frith burn. Drawn year-round, this is our private water source running right through the distillery grounds. This edition deliberately employs winter distilled spirit, where reduced contact with our copper stills enriches the final flavour' It is a combination of 50% Sherry butts 50% 2nd fill ex-Bourbon barrels
