About Chapter 7 Whisky's Girvan

This grain whisky distillery is located on the Clyde, in the coastal Lowlands. William Grant & Sons decided to build Girvan Distillery after a dispute with Distillers Company Limited. William Grant & Sons decided to run a TV ad for Standfast Whisky from Grant's. Distillers Company Limited was against this, so William Grant & Sons decided to build Girvan distillery. They did this in just 9 months. Original Coffey stills were used until 1995. Nowadays Girvan uses 6 column stills for its production. The distillery mainly produces grain whisky for brands, as well as Hendrick's Gin. It was also a site for Ladyburn Whisky at one point.

Chapter 7 Whisky has already bottled three single grain whiskies from Scotland, source from two distilleries. This Girvan edition comes from 7 different casks which were vatted together and married in two bourbon barrels. The cask strength is low, which shows the angels have been very greedy throughout the 30 years of maturation!
