Chita is the serenity of Japanese whisky, from the inventive grain whisky distillery in the Chita Peninsula dedicated to the pursuit of making diverse grain whiskies. Through a rare continuous distillation process using two, three or four columns, the Chita Distillery mainly creates three types of grain whisky—clean, medium, and heavy. These whiskies have been aged in a variety of casks before coming together to produce the Chita Single Grain Whisky. Sublimely smooth, versatile, and complex with subtle sweetness, Chita is embraced as the innovation single grain Japanese whisky from the award-winning House of Suntory Whisky.
The world’s first Scotch whisky selectively finished in Japanese Mizunara oak casks. Chivas Mizunara is a perfect marriage of Scottish craft and Japanese tradition. This rare oak gives gentle aromatic flavours; the resulting whisky is wondrously indulgent with a touch of spice. Because blended is better, in life and in Scotch.
The 14 year old Clynelish Single Malt Scotch Whisky offers sweet floral fragrances and maritime flavours with a light, dry finish.
This eight year old whisky from Blair Athol is the first release from the Concept 8 range. Specialising in the number eight due to its popularity as a lucky number across Asia – the range features single malts from eight different distilleries, with eight casks of eight year old whisky sourced from each! This is a fabulous little sipper that certainly brings plenty of good fortune to the palate.
Inspired by the popularity of the number eight across Asia and the belief that it brings wealth and prosperity, the Concept 8 range focuses on Scotch whiskies that have been specifically aged for eight years. They don't stop there with the eights either – for each collection, they select whiskies from eight different Scotch distilleries, and can you guess how many casks are used from each distillery? Yes, that's right – eight! This particular bottling showcases single malt from Speyside's Dailuaine Distillery and you already know how many years of maturation it enjoyed. A total of 2,724 bottles were drawn from eight casks for this release.
Ballindalloch, on the banks of the legendary salmon river, is for many the home of the definitive Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Hugely complex, rich with layers of flavour and a whiff of smoke in the finish.
Feast your eyes upon the 2008 vintage of the Cragganmore Distillers Edition single malt! This expression was distilled back in 2008 and eventually bottled up in 2020, after a finish in Port casks, introducing a whole bunch of red fruit notes, complementing the oaky, peaty elements at its core.
Here we have the 2019 release of the Distillers Edition from the Dalwhinnie Distillery! The Highland single malt was distilled in 2004 and went through a double maturation in Oloroso sherry casks, before bottling in 2019 in a limited release.
Dalwhinnie Winter's Gold is a 2015 addition to the Highland distillery's range inspired by the chilly climate up in the remote part of Scotland where their single malt Scotch whisky is distilled - as the label remarks, it was "Crafted by the Cold". It's made only with spirit that has been distilled between October and March, and interestingly enough, they suggest that you try serving this expression frozen!
DEWAR’S ‘Double Double’ 21 Year Old has pioneered the ‘double ageing’ process, with all the blends in the range undergoing a secondary resting in oak casks to marry the flavours and bring extra smoothness to the blend.
With the limited edition new ‘Double Double’ range, this process has become an art form, with a ‘quadruple aging’ or ‘double double’ aging process created by Dewar’s master blender Stephanie Macleod.
Innovation comes in many forms, and in 2019 our Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod, released a new range of Blended Scotch Whiskies with a Four Stage Ageing Process for Ultimate Smoothness. This may sound like an indulgence but the series has been picking up gold medal awards the world over since being released.
Firstly, the malt whiskies achieve their required age, and are mixed together and returned to an oak cask. The same happens to the grain whiskies. Then the two whisky types are blended together, and returned to an oak cask for a secondary double aging period. Finally, the blend is finished in an ex-Sherry cask.
This 21-year-old release has been finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, giving the whisky “subtle notes of cinnamon and ripe vine fruits with a silky smooth finish”.
We believe that in order to do things right and get the best results you should put in double the effort. So we asked ourselves how we could put in double the effort to our range that was already Double Aged for Extra Smoothness…and it was obvious..double it!
Our Double Double Series has been aged, blended together, aged again, then finished in sherry casks for the Ultimate Smoothness.
