Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? That Boutique-y Whisky Company are certainly not showing, any sign that they are slowing!
Here's our first batch of Cragganmore. There's a blueprint on the label showing a Cragganmore spirit still, which has had its top chopped off, which was done so they didn't collide with the roof. While roof versus still would have been an exciting battle, the peaceful outcome has produced some brilliant whiskies - like this very bottling...
Another first, and it's a double first too (does a double first make a second?). It's our first batch of single malt whisky from Zuidam, and our first Dutch whisky! The label features Patrick Zuidam giving us a tour of the wonderland within his distillery whilst wearing a sweet hat.
We're sure there's going to be plenty of you very excited about the following sentence... Here's our newest bottling of Macallan! It's a 30 year old from the world-famous distillery in Speyside, and by gosh, by golly, is it gorgeous! It also lets about as much light through it as a house-brick.
Distilleries have to be prepared for all sorts. Fire extinguishers. Intruder alarms. Shark repellent bat-spray. However, nobody is prepared for giants rummaging through your things for a massive hat. Our third batch of Glenburgie is warning to all in the shape of a delicious 18 year old single malt: "Be wary of giants."
We're on to our third batch of independently bottled Paul John single malt Indian whisky, and once again those angels are queuing up for their share of some stunning peated whisky. Save some for us! Please!
Now, if we were to ask you what renowned bear-botherer Goldilocks, W. & A. Gilbey and the Moray town of Keith had in common, would you have a clue what we were on about? That's right, the former porridge oats mill that is Strathmill distillery! This is our third batch, aged for a quarter of a century.
