We’ve all seen the worrying reports in the news recently about the effects we’re having on the planet and the need for serious, immediate change in the way that industries work in order to protect the environment and mitigate the effects of global heating and climate change. We were delighted, therefore, to receive some fantastic news from our friends at Nc’nean distillery this week - Scotland’s first fully organic distillery is now the UK’s first Net Zero Emissions distillery! Nc’nean take their environmental responsibilities incredibly seriously, committing themselves to releasing regular Sustainability reports with in-depth analyses of the company’s efforts to...

Glenallachie, MacNair's, New Arrivals -

We’re very much looking forward to the imminent arrival of the MacNair’s Exploration boutique rums! The MacNair’s brand is owned by Glenallachie and will be familiar to anyone who’s already tried their excellent Lum Reek blended malt whisky. Now MacNair’s are expanding into other spirits categories, and the forthcoming Exploration Rums are sure to be much in demand. First up on the MacNair’s Exploration Rum slate is a trio of Panamanian Rums selected and blended by Glenallachie head honcho Billy Walker himself. These rums - two 7-year-olds and a 15-year-old - were all aged initially in American oak casks in...

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...

Cabal, New Arrivals, Rum -

We like to think we’re a broad church here at Whisky-Online. Sure, we’re all about whisky - but we love other spirits too, especially malternatives like brandy and rum. Timmy R especially is fond of a rum, so he’s very excited about the latest smooth sipper to arrive on our shelves: it’s the first batch of a new rum called Cabal. Cabal 1513 Batch 1 is the first release from a new independent Scottish-based company called Harpalion Spirits and it’s a rum with a difference. Every single facet of the creation of this rum evolved from an extensive process of...
