One of three casks hand selected from the very first casks laid down at the Kininvie distillery on July 4th 1990. These ‘first drops’ casks have been chosen for our 25th Anniversary single cask bottling, single malt Scotch whisky, 25 years old.

The Kininvie distillery was opened twenty five years ago by Janet Sheed Roberts, who was the last remaining grand daughter of William Grant. To this day it has remained largely a family secret; hidden in the midst of Speyside, with only limited rare bottlings of the precious Kininvie single malt released.

To celebrate the distillery’s 25th anniversary, the William grant family are now sharing the very first drops of whisky. Kininvie ‘the first drops’ is one of the first casks filled at the distillery on July 4th 1990, and one of only three casks hand selected by Brian Kinsman for this special release.

‘the first drops’ marks the first chapter in an exciting collection, whose secrets will continue to be revealed over the coming years.


NOSE: Aromatic with a leafy green character. hints of geranium and spring meadow.

TASTE: Rich oakiness with a defined fresh vanilla sweetness. Fleshy fruit and ripe berries are overlaid with a touch of dry oak tannin.

FINISH: Sweet with a lasting oakiness.
