Cù Bòcan is the urban legend of a hellhound that stalks the residents of the remote Highland village of Tomatin. Legend has it a distillery worker was taking a late night stroll when suddenly he found himself being pursued by a snarling and mysterious black beast. Compelled by curiosity to see exactly what this beast was, the man turned and reached for a handful of the beast’s thick fur. Hands trembling as they faced the barred teeth and flared nostrils of the great beast, the man was left more terrified when instead of being attacked the beast instead disappeared into a blue hazy mist. Centuries later Cù Bòcan from Tomatin Distillery bottles single malt scotch whiskies as legendary as the tale they are based on.

Get the rare taste that is as legendary as the beast that inspired the name.
