In 1987, Tom Bulleit started the Bulleit Distilling Company, leaving a successful law practice to fulfill a lifelong dream of reviving an old family recipe. The whiskey, with its signature high rye content, gives a bold and spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish. Pure limestone-filtered water provides the foundation for the whiskey’s character, while charred American oak barrels give it a slightly smoky backbone! www.bulleit.com
Chivas believes that blended is better, in life and in Scotch.

Since then, Chivas has been integral to the growth of the Scotch whisky category worldwide – by bringing together the best malt and grain whiskies to create something extraordinary. www.chivas.com
With the tallest stills, the most advanced approach to extra maturation and a commitment to only ever using our casks twice, you could say we’re striving for one thing – an unnecessarily well made whisky. We’ve always realised that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. We just know it’s a trip worth making. With the tallest stills, the most advanced approach to extra maturation and a commitment to only ever using our casks twice, you could say we’re striving for one thing – an unnecessarily well made whisky. We’ve always realised that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. We just know it’s a trip worth making. https://www.glenmorangie.com/en/our-stories At 5.14 metres (16ft 10 1/4 inches) our stills are the tallest in Scotland. Not to mention the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe! Which means that only the very lightest and purest vapours make it to the top of their long copper necks, giving a smoother, purer and more elegant whisky. At Glenmorangie we select the finest oak casks in which to mature our whisky. But that’s not all, because we then only use each one twice (whilst many others use theirs up to five or six times), ensuring that the maximum amount of flavour is always extracted during maturation, delivering a rounder, smoother taste. Having pioneered extra maturation over twenty years ago, our whisky creators continue to travel the world in their search for exceptional casks. Casks that will provide additional, intriguing layers of flavours to the original character of Glenmorangie. www.glenmorangie.com

Roe & Co was launched in 2017, marking Diageo’s return to Irish whiskey. A blend of malt and grain from various distilleries across the country, it’s been matured predominantly in first-fill bourbon casks. This has a velvety, creamy texture and notes of sweet fruit and vanilla.
Talisker from the Isle of Skye is a powerful, challenging single malt with a salty nose, a peaty, smoky character and a peppery aftertaste. Unique in its class and the most awarded whiskey ever. Drink it pure or with ice, or of course in a cocktail like a peaty sour. Robert Louis Stevenson called Talisker the ‘king o’ drinks’ and for over 175 years, our distillation process has remained virtually unchanged. Heritage: Talisker was launched in 1830 when the distillery was established in Scotland. Interesting Facts: Distinctive, easily recognised and bottled at the unusual strength of 45.8% ABV, Talisker is one of the most awarded Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the world. Talisker has been the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled beside the sea on Skye since 1830, with its elemental style truly reflecting its maritime surroundings. Talisker proudy supports the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, a gruelling 2,900 mile race from Tenerife to Barbados.
