Description

Nc’nean is located in the town of Drimnin, nestled in the Western Highlands of Scotland on the Morven peninsula overlooking the Isle of Mull. Named after the Gaelic goddess Neachneohain, who was known as the Queen of Spirits and a fierce protector of nature. They are an independent, organic whisky distillery that has been crafting experimental spirits and pioneering sustainable production since 2017.

All milling, mashing, fermenting, distillation, and aging take place at the distillery. Nc’nean produces two distinct mashes with variances in yeast strains (one that yields high alcohol wash and one that yields high ester wash), fermentation (between 65 and 135 hours), and distillation season to produce its rich and fruity spirit.

Believing it to be their responsibility to constantly improve their environmental impact in terms of carbon footprint, pollution, and biodiversity, Nc’nean aims to make the best whisky in the best possible way for the planet and operates on three fundamental tenets, or three “100s”: the distillery operates using 100% renewable energy, uses 100% organic Scottish barley sourced locally from two organic certified farms, and bottles their spirits in 100% recycled glass. Additionally, 99.97% of their waste is diverted from landfills, and in 2021 Nc’nean became the first whisky distillery in the UK to be verified as net zero carbon emissions (scopes 1 and 2) by Environmental Strategies Ltd. Most impressive is Nc’nean’s B Corp certification.
