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

Whisky

You’d need a gantry the length of a very long gantry at a gantry exhibition 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 crackers (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 and see & taste what he’s talking about.

Now listen up – if you’re in alcohol free mode, (designated driver or early morning start) don’t worry – it’s not just soda & lime any more. We have 2 bottled beer options – Budweiser Budvar and Brew Dog Nanny State on offer – really great alternatives. Trust us – alcohol free beers ain’t what they used to be.
