A dram described as “city born and bred”, The Epicurean is a blend of some of the finest Lowland Malts; a marriage of the best that the East and the West of Scotland have to offer. This small batch bottling is proudly without colouring or chill-filtration and bottled at 46.2% ABV.
The Gauldrons Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky tells the story of the eponymous dark, stormy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores, and literally means “Bay of Storms”. As you step onto The Gauldrons’ fine, clean sand, you also step back in time. Over yonder is where a spider building his web with great patience but great difficulty inspired King Robert the Bruce to try, try and try again, having been defeated by his enemies. All around, you can sense the ghosts of the long lost distilleries that once proudly proclaimed Campbeltown Scotland’s Whisky capital. The Gauldrons is a marriage of the finest Campbeltown Malts, bottled in very small batches at 46.2% ABV, and proudly without colouring or chill-filtration.
Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old is a beautifully aged, Highland “Vatted” Malt, that is proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration. Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength, Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old's tasting notes include spiced autumnal fruit, complemented by honey, cereal and orange. The fourth release under the brand to carry an age statement, following Timorous Beastie 18 Years Old, 40 Years Old and 21 Years Old bottlings.
A limited-edition bottling of Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie, matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled up at a bolstered 54.9% ABV. Dubbed Meet the Beast, this expression certainly does dial up the intensity a few notches, with a big burst of vibrant fruit and oak notes at its core, supported by vanilla, fresh pastry, and a host of spices. A brilliant Highland blended malt – though the red eyes of the beastie on the label look as if it's staring into your soul a little bit.
The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns’ famous Scots poem “To a Mouse” was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing our national bard’s wit, ours is most certainly not for the fainthearted! Inside there’s a medley of vanilla, malted barley, meringue, honey and citrus flavours just bursting to be unleashed…

The Glenrothes is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. It is made at the Glenrothes distillery located in the town of Rothes in the heart of the Speyside region of Scotland. The distillery sits beside the Burn of Rothes, hidden in a glen on the edge of the town. The Glenrothes distillery is located on the banks of the peaty burn of Rothes. The distillery uses water from the Ardcanny Spring, which the locals call “The Lady’s Well”. Glenrothes first opened in 1879 and was then extended in 1896. Unfortunately in 1922 there was a large fire in the distillery and lots of casks exploded which caused huge quantities of whisky to drain into a local burn. It was then underwent a complete modernization in 1980 and now produces around 1.6 million litres a year.
Every bottle of Glenrothes has the year of bottling and date of distillation. Glenrothes have a very unique bottling that resembles the style of sample bottles found in blending rooms. Most of the whisky produced at Glenrothes is used for the Cutty Sark Scots blend.
