Where do you start ? So many whiskies….so little time.

Whisky

You’d need a gantry the length of Hampden Park to show most of the whiskies available today, so let’s just say we do our best to cover the bases with a great selection from all 6 Scottish Malt Whisky regions, some wonderful luxury blended whiskies plus a few overseas belters (I know – just don’t be afraid).

We’ve got a fair number which are listed in “101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die” by Ian Buxton. Give it a wee read whilst you’re here (or even purchase a copy from us) and see and taste what he’s talking about.

We’re extremely chuffed to have West Brewery beer here on draught at The Hightae Inn. They brew some amazing stuff, in accordance with Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law), and currently have 4% PURE Lager and Munich Red Beer on tap.

We also have Guinness on the surger system – “it’s science Jim, but not as we know it”.

Bottled beers include Greenmantle Ale from Broughton Ales near Biggar, Caledonian Deuchars IPA and the rather stunning Innis & Gunn Original small batch beer, both from Edinburgh.
