Inchgower is a lesser known distillery to the majority however the malt it produces is a key component in Bell's blended Scotch whisky.
The interesting aspect to this whisky is that it is effectively tailored to add to the flavour profile of Bell's by lowering the cut point of the second distillation in the spirit still.
