Pleased to peat you

PERNOD Ricard is looking to shake things up in the Scotch whisky category with the launch of a peated no age statement Speyside single malt.

Allt-A-Bhainne is described as mildly peated, but with the characteristic fruity undertone of a Speyside dram.

Chris Ellis, commercial director for Pernod Ricard UK, said: “The world of single malt whisky is often focused on history, heritage and how things used to be done. Allt-A-Bhainne goes against the grain by including peat.”
