Batch 1 Cask Strength is the first in what will be a series of releases from the distillery near Elgin, and follows on the success of cask-strength malts from co-owned GlenDronach Distillery in Aberdeenshire.

The whisky is bottled at 57.2% ABV, and will carry a recommended retail price of £57.99 GBP ($84 USD) at whisky specialist retailers in the UK and Europe.
