Strathearn distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Strathearn guarantees that every batch of whisky produced from its tiny stills will be unique. Some will be double-distilled, some triple, using a mixture of peated and unpeated malt, as well as a variety of 50-litre casks, including Sherry, rum and Bourbon.

Strathearn History

Scotland’s tiniest distillery started operation in 2013. Located in the village of Methven close to Crieff it occupies a set of former farm buildings. Production comes from an 800-litre wash still, a spirit still with a 400-litre charge. Even the casks are tiny, only holding 50 litres – the industry standard is 200. Flexibility is the aim of its owners and like many new ‘craft’ start-ups a gin has already been produced. Other spirits will follow.
