A relatively new distillery on the block, Douglas Laing was Established in 1948 in Glasgow by Fred Douglas Laing.The 3rd generation of this family business now looks after the Douglas Laing brand, creating and specialises in the selection and release of specialist, craft Scotch Whiskies.
The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns' famous Scots poem "To a Mouse" was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing Scotlands national bard's wit, this is most certainly not for the fainthearted!
Timorous Beastie captures the essence of The Highlands; a marriage of the region's finest Malts including Dalmore, Glengoyne and Glen Garioch.
It is, of course, proudly without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at 46.8% alcohol, resulting in an oily, chewy spirit that brings an incredible mouth-feel.
