Angels helping to protect the Cairngorms

So here it is, our new Angels' Nectar Cairngorms Edition, our Single Cask Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky bottled at 46% in partnership with the Cairngorms Trust to support environmental and community projects in the Cairngorms National Park.

Its a traditional Speyside dram with demerara sugar and gingerbread on the nose, which opens on the taste to reveal dried tropical fruit and a hint of marzipan. It is a limited edition of 263 bottles.

A donation from each bottle sold will go towards the Cairngorms Trust, whose vision is to encourage sustainable and community led development, which enhances wildlife conservation, outdoor recreation and cultural heritage in the Cairngorms National Park. Recent projects the Cairngorms Trust have assisted include improving habitat to encourage breeding ospreys and mountain footpath restoration.

With an area larger than Luxembourg, the Cairngorms National Park, is the UK’s largest National Park, but home to just 18000 people. Endangered wildlife resident in the park include capercaillie, wildcats, golden eagles, and black grouse. Four of the UK’s five highest mountains are in the park, but perhaps more importantly for whisky lovers, the headwaters of the River Spey are located within the park. 

For those who are missing the opportunity to get out and about in the Cairngorms this summer, what could be better than enjoying this taste of the Cairngorms at home. 

Available now from Balliefurth Farm Shop, the newly reopened Speyside Centre, and online from The Whisky Castle and our own on-line store.
