Michael Dougan was born into a poor immigrant family in Victorian Glasgow. Starting with nothing, through sheer grit and determination, Michael built up a thriving business as a spirits salesman and publican in Castle Street, Glasgow. Four generations later, we carry on Michael's dream, traditionally crafting Ben Èideann Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky in his honour. We hope he would be proud!
We source the finest Badatz Kosher wine casks from our partner vineyards in the Upper Galilee, Shomron Hills and Jerusalem Mountains. Only the best first fill-first barrels are used for our unique Galilean Ruby and Jerusalem expressions. You will not find any other Kosher wine finish Single Malt Scotch Whiskies!
Once our hand picked Kosher casks arrive in the UK, our master cooper individually inspects each one and tends to the wood. Ensuring the best quality wood is vital to the time-honoured process of making beautiful whisky. It is estimated that up to 70% of the final flavour profile comes from the cask!
What could be better than the finest Scottish Single Malt whisky matured in boutique Kosher wine casks, hand picked for their delicate flavour profile? We use the finest first fill wine Kosher casks to impart the maximum taste and colour. Once you have sampled a dram of our unique expressions there will be no going back!
