Caledonian (silent)

Built in 1855 by Graham Menzies & Co. of the Edinburgh (Sunbury) distillery, Caledonian was the largest distillery of its time. It was perfectly positioned for success, located close to Haymarket station, which had opened 13 years prior, and the Forth & Clyde Canal, from which cooling water was drawn. Caledonian was, for several decades, the largest distillery in Scotland.  The distillery also produced an Irish style revered among blenders at the time for its consistency.  Some stocks of Caledonian have been bottled as a single grain by indie bottlers in recent years. With the exception of a commemorative bottling for the 1986 Commonwealth Games held in Edinburgh and a 40-year-old, 1974 vintage under ‘The Cally’ label, there haven't been any official releases
