Clan Fraser Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky - the Spirit of the Borders:
NAMED AFTER ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS CLANS OF SCOTLAND DATING FROM THE EARLY 12TH CENTURY.
ORIGINALLY SETTLING IN BOTH THE HIGHLAND AND LOWLAND PORTIONS OF SCOTLAND.
CLAN MEMBERS HAVE MADE THEIR MARK THROUGH EXPLORATION, DISCOVERY, PIONEERING, ENTERPRISE AND INNOVATION.
THE CLAN NAME IS KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
NOW FROM THE HEART OF SCOTLAND, WE PRESENT
BACK IN THE DAY YOU HEARD, "RAISE THE CLAN!"
NOW YOU HEAR, "RAISE THE RESERVE!"
THE SPIRIT OF CLAN FRASER IS NOW IN AMERICA!
Belonging and Inclusion - Always in our Hearts and Minds:
WHAT LIES AT THE HEART OF EVERY CLAN IS A SENSE OF BELONGING, BEING A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER AND SHARING CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS WITH OTHERS.
CLAN FRASER RESERVE BLENDED SCOTCH WHISKY CELEBRATES A CLAN KNOWN ACROSS NOT JUST SCOTLAND, BUT THE ENTIRE WORLD.
IT'S THE CONFIDENCE INSPIRED BY THIS SHARED SENSE OF BELONGING THAT ALLOWED THE ORIGINAL FRASERS TO SETTLE IN THE SCOTTISH BORDERS.
IT IS ALSO WHAT POWERED THEIR JOURNEY ACROSS SCOTLAND, EVENTUALLY TAKING THEM WITH THE FOUR WINDS TO ALL CORNERS OF THE GLOBE.
BELONGING TO THE CLAN IS UPPERMOST IN THE MIND OF EACH MEMBER, NO MATTER WHERE THEY ARE AROUND THE WORLD... AND NOW IN AMERICA TOO.
Making The Reserve Whisky
The Borders Distillery takes pride in the art of distilling and blending, whether it be making their own spirit to become Single Malt Scotch Whisky or selecting and marrying others from across Scotland.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is produced from only 3 natural ingredients: malted barley, water, and yeast. The Borders Distillery uses locally-grown barley, all harvested from 11 farms lying within 20 miles of the distillery. The distillery draws its water from an underground lake beneath the site which contains enough pure water to last the distillery the next 185,000 years- more than enough for a wee dram or two.
For THE RESERVE, the master distiller and blender selects the finest single malts distilled in pot stills around Scotland to blend with grain whiskies distilled in column stills creating this ultra-soft and extremely smooth blended scotch whisky. It should be noted that their fresh distilled liquid must be matured in Scotland, in oak barrels, for a minimum of 3 years and 1 day before the law allows it to be called Scotch Whisky and much, much longer before we allow it to be called Clan Fraser Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky. After all, our reputation demands it!
Use all 5 Senses on The Reserve
This unique blend of the finest grain and malt Scottish whiskies is inspired by the ingenuity, determination and pioneering spirit of the Fraser clan.
Professional whisky tasters have described THE RESERVE as honeyed and buttery on the nose with hints of cinnamon and vanilla, and notes of raisins and figs; It is warm, slightly sweet and deliciously smooth. We amateur whisky tasters just say, "I love it" and pour another taste.
Clan Fraser Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky is an exquisite whisky that represents the centuries of Clan Fraser tradition; that carries the spirit of Borders hospitality across and around the world and invokes a sense of belonging and clan-ship in the hearts of all those who taste it.
While both we and the professionals can describe what we each taste in a glass of THE RESERVE, our unlimited praise can only be a guide to your own exploration of the five senses when you pour your first wee dram:
The vision of golden color;
The splash heard when poured in a glass;
The aroma of years of maturity;
The taste a tribute to the blending of whiskies and
The feel of ultra-smoothness.
WELCOME TO CLAN FRASER!
