WHISKY & WATER

DUFFTOWN DISTILLERIES, Scotland, made in the uk

The finest whiskies in the world start with just two ingredients, barley and water. From simple beginnings, something infinitely more desirable emerges after a long slumber in a dark, damp Scottish warehouse – something smooth, spicy and spellbinding.

The most crucial ingredient, however, is considerably harder to procure: whisky demands of its makers an abundant supply of patience, for under no circumstances can a single malt be hurried. Only after three years in oak does it earn the right to call itself a Scotch whisky, and it takes at least a decade in darkness to earn the respect of a true connoisseur – and some prestigious whiskies are as old as 70 years, laid to barrel by previous generations.

As with the making, so with the drinking – for a dram must not be downed. Pour into a tulip-shaped glass; tilt and turn the glass to watch the oily nectar coat the sides; ‘nose’ the whisky to pick up on peaty, smoky or fruity expressions; add a splash of spring water to release its buttery tones; and finally sip to open up the great Scottish outdoors. Deep leather armchair and crackling fire optional.

Barley is high in linoleic acid, a traditional calmant for dry skin.

Noble Isle sources natural extract of malted barley from the time honoured Balvenie Distillery in Dufftown, one of only a few distilleries still harvesting and malting its own barley to create an exclusive range of hand-crafted single malt Scottish whiskies characterised by smooth, honeyed complexity.
