It is often said that belonging is a state of mind.But there are some places in the world that naturally evoke a sense of belonging more distinctly than others. In the majestic Highlands of Scotland, purple heather covers rugged hills and ice-cold burns cut smoothly through gentle glens.
Like this whisky, the Highlands offer an undeniable sense of true tranquillity. In this land of infinite winding paths, each one leads to a place that feels like home.
The Journey to Islay is not an easy one. Getting there takes time but the island, like its whisky, is worth the effort. We have made this trip for generations and will continue to do so, bringing back some of the best malt whiskies Islay has to offer.
To create this outstanding blend of fine Scotch malt whisky we have selected whiskies from the very finest distilleries to be found on the iconic Isle of Islay. The balance of smoothness and complexity of flavour and aroma comes from blending whiskies some of which have been matured in Bourbon hogheads.
A superb addition to our current range, the anCnoc 18 Years Old has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor coloured. As a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered.
The anCnoc 12 Years Old is renowned the world over. Known as a must-have in any whisky drinker’s collection, it’s light and yet complex. Smooth and approachable, with each twist and turn delivering a surprise, this is a dram that has something for everyone. Our flagship single malt is the perfect starting point for those beginning their exploration of whisky.
Macallan Edition No.1-6 Collection
It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.
Another stellar addition to the Double Cask range from Macallan, it's a 15 Year Old expression! The single malt spent its years in a combination of American and European oak, both of which were seasoned with Oloroso sherry. What did you expect from Macallan? A wonderful balance of creamy sweetness and fiery spice to be found in this one.
An exciting new age statement single malt Scotch whisky from Macallan that's matured in a combination of American and European Sherry oak for a minimum of 12 years. Here, the proportion of American oak ex-Sherry casks is higher than in the 12 Year Old Sherry Oak, but no ex-bourbon casks are used as they are in the 12 Year Old Fine Oak release.
Brugal Añejo is matured in carefully selected American oak casks that are medium toasted to provide a smooth taste, with beautifully light aromas of wood. Our Añejo rum is dry in an overall sense and buttery in the mouth with a slight hint of caramel and tannin.
Brugal Añejo is a perfect rum for mixing in a refreshing premium serve and sharing with friends.
This right here is a 25 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Talisker distillery. Housing a single malt Scotch whisky that was predominantly matured in American oak hogsheads with some European oak refill. Truly spectacular stuff from the beautiful island of Skye.
‘The Flames of the Phoenix' is an appropriate theme for the 2022 Special Release bottling of Lagavulin, as it was designed to be the most phenolic Lagavulin yet. Fans of the distillery will know that means a truly peaty customer, with lots of spice and power amplified by the virgin oak casks this heavily peated Lagavulin was aged in, alongside American oak refill casks.
This tremendous Talisker joins Diageo's 2022 Special Release lineup following 11 years of maturing in first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Deliciously sweet and fruit-forward, with all the classic layers of pepper and coastal bonfire, this lightly peated offering fits right into the collection. The label features a rather mesmerizing luminescent jellyfish, bringing some light to the dark depths of the ocean.
