The Coopers Choice Craigellachie Fruit Basket is a third party independent bottling of Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This is a very limited edition single cask bottling.

The Cooper’s Choice range of whiskies is bottled by the Vintage Malt Whisky Co. (VMWC) which was founded by Brian Cook in 1992. Brian is a honours graduate in Food Science with twenty year’s experience in the malt whisky industry, latterly as Export Director for one of Scotland’s principal distillers. The aim of the VMWC is to produce a range of malt whiskies from Scotland’s finest distilleries and to make them available to independent wine and spirit importers throughout the world. This single malt whisky is individually bottled and presented under the distinctive Coopers Choice label. Casks of malts at different ages are selected from some of Scotland’s finest, but rarely bottled ,distilleries. They encompass all the varied tastes and flavours to be found from the Eastern coastline, to the Highland Valleys and all the way to the Western Isles.

The Craigellachie Distillery is located in the heart of Speyside at Aberlour, Banffshire near the village of Craigellachie itself. The distillery was founded in 1891 and today it is owned by Bacardi and operated through its subsidiary Dewar & Sons. Craigellachie has long been a prized malt for blending due to its full, yet aromatic character, primarily in Dewar’s Blended Whisky.

After a period of ageing in American oak barrels, this Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky was finished in ex-Banyuls casks. Banyuls is a prized dessert wine from the south of France which lends mouthwatering aromas of sweet peaches and apple skins while the palate bursts with juicy grape notes, sweet malt notes and cooking spices.

Only 306 bottles of The Coopers Choice Craigellachie “Fruit Basket” were bottled in 2021.

Cask Ref #619 Bottled at 53.5% ABV.
