Ben Nevis Distillery

- Fort William, Scotland

About Ben Nevis Distillery

Ben Nevis distillery, located in Fort William, lies at the base of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. This coastal distillery in the Western Highlands draws its water from the Allt a’Mhuilinn, originating from two pools on Ben Nevis, Coire Leis and Coire na’Ciste. 

Founded in 1825 by ‘Long John’ McDonald, the distillery has been owned by Nikka Whisky Distilling since 1989.

Initially independent, the distillery merged with a nearby second distillery, Nevis Distillery, in the early twentieth century. In 1955, new proprietors led by Joseph Hobbs introduced continuous distillation using a Coffey Still, making it one of the first distilleries to produce both malt and grain whisky simultaneously. The distillery’s range includes the 10-year-old expression, various cask-finishes and limited editions.

Ben Nevis is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
