New Arrivals, Torabhaig, VIP Club -

Torabhaig’s Legacy Series Inaugural Release sold out pretty sharpish, so we’re delighted to announce the imminent arrival of their second general release single malt whisky: Torabhaig Legacy Series Allt Gleann. Housed in a painstakingly converted farmstead about 40 miles from Talisker, Torabhaig is only the second legal distillery on the Isle of Skye, and like their neighbours they’re making peated whisky. Torabhaig began distilling in January 2017 and have created a signature style they call Well Tempered Peat - so although their barley is heavily peated, Torabhaig whisky isn’t just a one-dimensional smokebomb. Torabhaig's freedom to explore its own developing character is...

Glenallachie, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

*SOLD OUT 09/06/21* More good news for Glenallachie fans - even after the abundance of single casks and the recent wine cask finish series, the distillery’s hectic release schedule continues!

Ardnamurchan, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

Exciting news, the new Ardnamurchan is about to arrive, and this time there’s two of them! AD/04.21:03 and AD/04:21 Paul Launois are the latest releases from Adelphi Distillers’ Ardnamurchan distillery in the western Highlands.  Ardnamurchan AD/04.21:03 follows the formula of the smash hit previous general releases, with a 50/50 mix of the distillery’s peated and unpeated spirits matured in a mix of 65% ex-bourbon and 35% ex-sherry casks and bottled at 46.8%. Ardnamurchan AD/04:21 Paul Launois, meanwhile, is rather different - it’s the distillery’s first truly limited-release batch of single malt, and it’s a wine finish! Paul Launois is an...

Blended Whisky, Glenallachie, New Arrivals, VIP Club, White Heather -

Something very special today - we’re delighted to announce the imminent arrival of the new relaunch of one of Scotland’s most famous and well-loved historic blends: White Heather! Billy Walker, owner and Master Distiller at Glenallachie distillery, began his career in the whisky industry in 1971 as a blender, so the resurrection of the heritage White Heather brand is a source of great pride for him.  White Heather originally appeared in the 1950s and Aberlour’s splendid single malt whisky was the keystone malt whisky in the glory years. The original White Heather cube bottles, particularly the aged and higher-strength versions, are...

Foursquare, New Arrivals, VIP Club -

We've been quietly ramping up our Rum section on the site with some terrific new bottlings recently. That’s set to continue with the imminent arrival of Foursquare Redoutable! Foursquare is a technology-driven distillery with a modern ethos, built on an old sugar plantation in the south of Barbados in 1996 by the Seale family. Owner and master distiller Richard Seale has challenged the traditional rum-making orthodoxy with his adoption of different cask types for maturation and a rejection of the use of added sweeteners and colourings. This philosophy and commitment to quality has seen Foursquare win a slew of international...
