New Arrivals, Raasay -

Great news - it’s nearly time for the next release of single malt whisky from the Isle of Raasay distillery: Isle of Raasay R-02!  The tiny Hebridean island of Raasay (with a population of just 161 hardy souls) is home to an even tinier, eponymous distillery that began production in September 2017 and released its first ever single malt - Isle of Raasay Inaugural - at the end of last year. Isle of Raasay’s first widely-available single malt whisky for the general public - the snappily-titled Isle of Raasay R-01 - was only released a few months ago and despite...

New Arrivals, North Star Spirits -

We’re delighted to announce the imminent arrival of Periodical, the latest wheeze from North Star Spirits, one of Scotland’s most exciting new wave independent bottlers of single malt whisky. Along with the incoming latest batch of their excellent single cask releases, North Star will shortly be debuting the first bottling of their newest series of whiskies.  Periodical has a very vintage-style aesthetic, is credited to ‘Glagow Spirit Merchants Croucher & Co.’ and comes in an old-style apothecary flask-type bottle and label. As the name implies, Periodical will be an occasional release alongside North Star’s regular lineup. The reasons for the...

Dalmunach, Duncan Taylor, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

We’re absolutely overjoyed to be bringing you a Whisky-Online exclusive bottling from Dalmunach distillery! This very special limited edition Dalmunach 2016 has been bottled from an Octave sherry cask especially for Whisky-Online by our friends at Duncan Taylor and we can’t wait to share it with our lucky customers.

Glendronach -

There’s been some controversy in the last few months over at Glendronach, where the 2021 editions of the Glendronach 12 Year Old Original and Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival have removed the Non Chill Filtered statement from their packaging. It’s fair to say that this particular tweak to what is a much-loved bottling has not gone over very well in some quarters. Having seen the strong reaction to the change on various social media fora, we thought it might be interesting to talk a little about the history of Glendronach 12 year Old to put the current furore into context. We’ll...

Bimber, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

We can’t wait to tell you about our forthcoming new arrival - Bimber Ex-Bourbon Casks Batch 003! Bimber weren’t the first new distillery in England in modern times. They weren’t even the first new whisky distillery in London - not by a long shot. But in just a few years since they began distilling in 2016, Bimber have arguably done more than any other of the new wave of English craft distillers to put English single malt whisky on the map. In the short period since the release of their first single malt whisky in 2019, Bimber have become one...
