    The Nc'nean Distillery was founded by Annabel Thomas in March 2017 - she was previously a consultant in London but a distillery road trip around Scotland persuaded her to up sticks and create a distillery with a difference – it's the first fully organic distillery powered by 100% renewable energy. The wood chips for the biomass boiler are sourced from a local forest, while all by-products are recycled as animal and plant feed on Drimin Estate where the distillery is located. The glass for the bottles is also 100% recycled.

     The name Nc'nean (pronounced Nik-nee-ann) comes from Neachneohain, the Queen of Spirits in Gaelic legend. Neachneohain was a huntress: strong, independent and never afraid to walk her own path - she was also a fierce protector of nature.

    'Huntress' is also the name of the first of a series of Spring releases, focussing on key aspects of the whisky-making process. In this case, we have the end result of trials with specific types of yeast. While it sounds pretty niche, you'd be amazed just how much difference varying types of yeast have on the flavour profile of the final product - not just in whisky either. The yeast in this particular instance is normally used in the production of rum, and as you might expect there is a slightly fruity note to this particular dram. Maturation in a combination of 61% STR red wine casks and 39% ex-Bourbon barrels accentuates the sweeter notes of , but there is still a sprightly liveliness thanks to the young age - distillation took place in August of 2018 with disgorging taking place on 3rd March 2022, with a total of 4447 bottles being released.
