The legend of Ingelred is over a thousand years old. The Ingelred sword combined the best of two worlds: from India the materials and advanced knowledge to make high carbon steel, and from the North the exceptional skills of a Viking blacksmith. Ingelred Whisky is owned by three old friends, wanting to create an individual bottler specializing in producing uniquely-matured whisky. Ingelred Whisky brings together the craftmanship of a Scottish whisky distillery with Nordic innovation.
In 1846, Hector Henderson decided to build a small distillery in the bay next to Port Askaig, on Islay’s east coast. Caol Ila, Gaelic for the Sound of Islay, the stretch of water which it overlooks.
Caol Ila’s distillery character manages to combine a fresh pear note, grassiness, a hint of juniper, and distinct notes of the seashore with smoke.
This whisky was distilled in April 2011 and bottled in August 2021.
