T&A McClelland’s was a Glasgow based whisky blending and export firm established in 1818. The company was purchased in 1970 by Stanley P Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore Distillers) and to this day many of the T&A McClelland’s malt whisky brands are still produced and distributed on a global scale.
The McClelland’s range offers a chance to explore Scotland and four of the key whisky distilling regions. The McClelland’s Single Malt Whisky range was first launched in 1986 with an Islay, Highland and Lowland expression. Due to its success and demand, a Speyside expression was introduced in 1999.
Each Single Malt expression is carefully selected to reflect the true essence and character of the region in which it is produced. The packaging reflects the key elements of the region with stunning landscapes by British illustrator Kathy Wyatt.
The Highlands of Scotland are moving and unforgettable, carved through the ages from one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges. When the poet wrote ‘Scotland thy beauty is wild and majestic’ he was thinking of the Highlands. The north and west of the country is the last wilderness in Europe, a land of rugged mountains, lakes and fast-flowing rivers, forests and castles. While Highland malts are not as peaty in comparison to Islay, the slightest hint of smoke can often be detected on the nose. Home of the Scottish clans and full of romance and story, the malts made here capture the spirit of the place - wild flowers, the scents of moorland, fresh heather, and the sappy flavours of pine forests.
