Big Peat is a marriage of Malts from Islay’s Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen Distilleries, first created in 2009 by Fred Laing, our Master Blender. Since then, the Big Peat recipe has remained Fred’s closely guarded secret – but how would you like to create your very own, one of a kind, Big Peat bottling?
Attend our “Big Peat’s Be the Blender” masterclass, and you’ll do exactly that. Join our Global Malt Ambassador Jan Beckers, as we sample Big Peat, then nose and taste Single Malts which make up his component parts from Distilleries on Islay. You are then invited to marry these Single Malts together to create your own unique Big Peat bottle to take home.
