Cairngorms Angels Whisky

Love the Cairngorms, enjoy whisky? We at Angels’ Nectar have just the dram for you.

Launched back in the summer of 2020 the Angels’ Nectar Cairngorms Editions are the result of a collaboration between Angels’ Nectar Scotch Whisky and the Cairngorms Trust.

Inspired by the Angels’ Share, that’s the traditional name given to the whisky lost to evaporation during maturation, with Angels’ Nectar we showcase contrasting styles of Scotch Whisky with small batch releases. But we can see where our Angels’ Share goes and the difference it can make.

Cairngorms Trust

The Angels Nectar Cairngorms Editions are our series of single casks from Speyside distilleries in the Cairngorms National Park, bottled in partnership with the Cairngorms Trust. A donation from each bottle sold goes to the Cairngorms Trust, whose vision is to encourage  sustainable and community led development, which enhances wildlife conservation, outdoor  recreation and cultural heritage in the Cairngorms National Park. Recent projects the Cairngorms Trust have assisted include improving habitat to encourage breeding ospreys and mountain footpath restoration.

Future Editions

The current release is the Angels’ Nectar Cairngorms 3rd Edition, a 12 years old single cask Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky bottled at 46%. With sweet citrus notes on the nose and honey on the taste this forthright dram is delightfully warming. Perfect for  relaxing after a day out exploring the Cairngorms.

Do also look out for the Cairngorms 4th Edition, which will be arriving soon. Amongst others our Angels’ Nectar Cairngorms 3rd Edition is now appropriately available via the new Visit Cairngorms on-line shop.

The Cairngorms

With an area larger than Luxembourg, the Cairngorms National Park, is the UK’s largest National Park, but home to just 18000 people. Endangered wildlife residents in the park include capercaillie, wildcats, golden eagles, and black grouse. Four of the UK’s five highest mountains are in the park, but perhaps more importantly for whisky lovers, the headwaters of the River Spey are located within the park.

The Cairngorms are special, and what better way to help protect them for future generations, then via your whisky glass.
