Douglas Laing was established in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing. They are a 3rd generation, family-run Scotch independent bottler who specialise in artisan, small batch and single cask bottlings. They try to keep their customer experience as close as possible to a distillery experience and release with no added colour and no chill filtration.
Glen Elgin distillery first started production in Speyside in 1900. It was a difficult start for the distillery with a number of closures and changes of ownership in it's initial years. Electricity only arrived in 1950 replacing paraffin as the source of power. Under the Diageo umbrella, Glen Elgin is a major contributor to blends, particularly White Horse. This Douglas Laing selected cask from Glen Elgin is a 21 year old single malt, matured in a refill hogshead yielding 266 bottles at 51.5% ABV.
