Inspired by the impressive Scottish Highlands, an old legend; ‘The witch of Laggan’ (taking place in ‘The Forest of Gaick) and by customer inquiries, Cú Dhub Black Single Malt Scotch Whisky was born.
Cú Dhub reflects its origin in being unique and rough and just as the Scottish Highlands are mysterious and tough, and as the Celtic history and nature is immensely intriguing, so is Cú Dhub Black Whisky.
In creating the whisky, we wanted to respect the morale of the Legend – that all your actions have consequences, and we knew that if we presented the public with a whisky that was not up to our standards of only presenting the finest spirits, it would fall back on us, and we would have to face the consequences. As a result, we made a whisky – black and innovative – that lives up to our understanding of the finest quality of spirits.
We also wanted to make a whisky that intrigues both newcomers as well as experienced whisky drinkers for its colour, spices and balanced sweetness. The result of this became Cú Dhub – “a whisky with a bite”.
