About this Murray McDavid whisky

In the small town of Alness, north of Inverness, is one of the largest single malt distilleries you may never have heard of. The Teaninich Distillery was built in 1817 and the Murray McDavid team have selected its spicy, oily spirit to further mature in a red Pineau des Charentes cask.

The French fortified wine cask has softened the edges of this youthful highland whisky. After gently maturing in a 350-litre cask for its last 32 months, this unusual combination of spirit and oak has produced an unexpectedly wonderful mouthfeel that lingers and evolves with each and every sip.

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.
