About this Murray McDavid whisky

Strathclyde may be the largest Scotch whisky distillery you’ve never heard of! It sits in the heart of Glasgow, on the banks of the river Clyde. This single grain distillery creates its spirit by using mainly wheat, resulting in a creamy style, perfectly suited to mature in American rye whiskey casks.

Maturing this single grain whisky in small rye casks from Koval Distillery in the USA has, after 4 years, resulted in a tasty, superbly balanced whisky. An excellent example from Murray McDavid of what can be achieved with careful maturation.

Dean Jode

Dean Jode is Head of Whisky Creations at Murray McDavid. Dean usually starts with single cask whiskies that have been filled into refill casks. He believes the oak cask is the most important factor when creating exceptionally balanced and delicious whisky. So a big part of Dean’s job is searching for the very best quality casks from around the world to re-rack whiskies into.

Dean builds relationships with fellow producers of exceptional drinks by importing their freshly emptied casks for the additional maturation of our ever-growing inventory of Scotch whisky. Using these casks fresh is of key importance. This is where Dean creates not only beautiful spirit colour but more importantly enriches the spirit’s character to create a dram with an exceptional depth of flavour.

Within the traditional whisky warehouses at Coleburn, Dean monitors each and every cask to capture the perfect moment when the nature of the cask has perfectly intertwined with its resting spirit.
