Motorcycle rally ‘Thunder in the Glen’ (Europes biggest Harley Davidson rally) is held every year in Aviemore, Scotland.
Speyside distillery took the opportunity to launch their new expression Beinn Dubh at the event.
Beinn Dubh was the name given to Ben Macdui – the highest peak in the Cairngorm mountain range – by Professor Norman Collie after his solo climb to the summit in 1891. It translates from Gaelic as the black mountain.
Speyside Distillery wanted to recreate the essence of the black mountain in a bottle, and Beinn Dubh was born. It gets its unusual colouring because it has been finished in toasted port casks from the Douro Valley in Portugal.
