A single malt,
so many possibilities.
John Crabbie was a pioneer and a rule breaker, he was one of the first to blend whisky in the 1800s in order to create consistency – something that was quite elusive in those days.
Continuing that pioneering nature, Yardhead is the first non-age declared single malt whisky from John Crabbie & Co. Distilled in the highlands and matured exclusively in ex bourbon casks, Yardhead is ideal for sipping and mixing in long drinks and cocktails, it breaks the rules of how you can enjoy single malt Scotch whisky.
Yardhead is named after the original site where John Crabbie distilled and matured whisky in Edinburgh. Archive records show that Crabbie’s whisky was housed in Bond 73 at Yardheads, in Leith and this became the home of the original Crabbie’s distillery.
