IS IT SCOTCH?
If the Laird of Fintry was made in Scotland it would be, but as only Single Malt Whiskies made in Scotland can call themselves “Scotch”, we celebrate ours as BC’S Original Single Malt Whisky! The Laird is homegrown Okanagan to its core and fiercely proud of it.
After years of barrel-aging in French and American Oak, this Canadian Single Malt is smooth, non-peated and combines solid forest notes of toasted oak with more delicate tones of vanilla, plum, raisins, caramel and spice.
WHY ‘THE LAIRD OF FINTRY’?
Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery wanted to pay homage to the Okanagan when naming its Canadian Single Malt Whisky.
‘The Laird of Fintry’ title is based on the true story of James Cameron Dun-Waters, the ‘Laird’ of Fintry estates in Fintry, BC, who in the early 1900s ordered a special batch of personally labelled Single Malt Whisky (Scotch) from his homeland Scotland.
Using a replica of the original label, Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery wanted to honour the history of whisky in the Okanagan.
In turn, it also supports the ‘Friends of Fintry Society‘ with an annual donation to help maintain the original property of The Laird.
