Blended Malts

With our family's premium wine background we have long been aware of the practice of blending specially selected wines to create unique expressions. When we began Wemyss Malts we knew we wanted to take that philosophy forward into the whiskies we produced, blending a small number of very fine casks so the end result was a marriage of flavours and aromas that were beautifully balanced and greater than the sum of its parts.

The Hive, Spice King and Peat Chimney; our flavourful core range

Over ten different single malt whiskies, a mixture of ages, from the Highlands, Lowlands and Speyside are expertly blended together to create our “base” malts. This is a smooth and gentle foundation from which we can develop our core range. 

 “Support” and “signature” malts are then carefully added to craft to create three distinct whiskies, each with unique taste profiles; Sweet, Spicy and Smoky.

Utilising a tasting panel that includes industry experts such as Charlie Maclean each whisky is carefully studied and named after the aromas and flavours discovered in the whisky.

The Hive uses signature malts from Speyside, giving citrus and honeyed top notes. For Spice King, the signature malt we use is from the Highlands and Islands, to produce a whisky with rich, full and spicy top notes. Peat Chimney uses an Islay signature malt to give top notes of sweet smoke, salt and peat.

Each of the Wemyss blended malts is bottled at 46%abv and is non chill filtered, perfect for sipping neat, with ice or water and as a tasty cocktail ingredient.

The range has previously included 8 and 12 year old age expressions bottled at 40% to create smooth and rounded whiskies.

The Hive, Spice King and Peat Chimney; Batch Strength

The Wemyss Family Collection

WEMYSS FAMILY COLLECTION is a new series of blended malt Scotch whiskies crafted from the Wemyss family’s own selection of maturing cask stocks. In the never ending search for quality, the Wemyss family have in the past decade been sourcing newly distilled spirit from the foremost Scottish malt distilleries to mature in casks carefully selected for the extraordinary influence they impart on Scotch spirit.
