‘Apps’ is a distillery term for ‘Apparatus’ and No.4 Apps at Girvan Distillery has been producing ‘vacuum distilled’ spirit since the column still was installed in 1992, including the spirit which matured into this Single Grain Scotch Whisky.
The reduced pressure results in distillation at lower temperatures producing a very pure and fruity grain spirit. This is then matured in a mix of first-fill American white oak and refill American oak casks.

Girvan Patent Still No.4 Apps is bottled without the addition of caramel colouring.
