Dis­tillery ba­bies, Reid & Ritchie Whi­taker, are grow­ing up among the Whisky casks at the Cardrona Dis­tillery. The pair are age­ing along­side Cardrona’s spirit, de­vel­op­ing depth of char­ac­ter and rich­ness with the pass­ing years. This Christ­mas sea­son marks a mile­stone. The “new make spirit” turns three, like Ritchie, and in that mo­ment, trans­forms into true Cardrona Sin­gle Malt Whisky. Three long years ma­tur­ing in tra­di­tional oak casks - the re­quired ob­ser­va­tion of time com­plete to gain the ti­tle. To mark this mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion the fam­ily are re­leas­ing a first snap­shot of this pre­cious nec­tar - “Just Hatched” - a small taste for Cardrona’s guardian an­gels. “Just Hatched” is a glimpse of the adult Whisky to come. Age­ing to­gether, Reid, Ritchie and The Cardrona Sin­gle Malt Whisky will go on to ma­ture into 10 year olds, 18 year olds, 21 year olds, 30 year olds and older. All three are rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the many peo­ple whose lives are in­ter­twined with the craft­ing of The Cardrona Sin­gle Malt Whisky.
