HIGHLAND RYE. THE FIRST SCOTTISH RYE FOR OVER 100 YEARS.

A SENSE OF PLACE.
To appreciate Arbikie Whisky is to look beyond the product itself and see the soil, the fields, the climate, the people, the craft, the culture and traditions - all have had a profound and unique impact on the character of our whisky. Every drop has a taste of its origins. For us, this is not just about Scotland – it’s about the region of Angus, and then more specifically our home – where the eas t coast sea crashes on to the shore of Lunan Bay, overlooked by our farm and distillery.

At Arbikie, the whisky story starts with preparing the soil for sowing the grain. The following field to bottle process ensures we understand the effect of every sing le ingredient vital to the entire whisky production and, in turn, we respect and nurture the environment we depend upon. Traceability, sustainability, and quality without compromise are built into our DNA.

HIGHLAND RYE LIMITED EDITION:
MATURED IN CHARRED AMERICAN OAK.
ENRICHED IN ARMAGNAC BARRELS.
Records show that Rye grain was used in Scotch w hisky production until the late 19 th century. It is this tradition we have revived. Using rye grown on our own estate, we have created a characterful Highland Rye that is bold, exciting, and full of flavour. It is also proudly ‘single grain’ – grain whisky produced at a single distillery. That distillery is Arbikie, where the team value tradition, authenticity, and our enduring field to bottle principals.

HIGHLAN D RYE 1794.
MATURED IN CHARRED AMERICAN OAK.
Arbikie was first discovered as a farm distillery in 1794. Centuries past, distilling was a local craft with a truly local flavour. In these distant times, all ingredients for the pot still would be taken from the farm and immediate surroundings. Our 1794 Highland Rye Single Grain Scotch Whisky is a celebration of this field to bottle tradition - reviving a genuinely authentic way of distilling and producing a spirit with a sense of place, and a taste of the land and sea that surrounds us.

As with our limited - edition, we combined our unique use of rye with new charred American oak. But , for the 1794 edition, we did not finish the spirit in a further cask, leaving the lively new oak to do its magic. And it did no t disappoint. It is the first time in Scotland this combination has been created, and the result is a highly original whisky that fires the imagination and the senses with exciting flavours and aromas. For any whisky, barrel type has a major influence on taste, and new charred American oak complements the flavours of the rye, wheat and malted barley grains - imparting rich colour and deep flavour.
