A family-run Highland gem leading the way for fine whisky
We focus on the rising star of Islay Whisky
The May bank holiday is behind us and many in Britain have had
their first taste of Summer travel, whether it was off to Spain,
the South of France or any number of classic destinations, it will
surely have whetted the appetite for a summer packed with holidays
away. As great as it is to spend a sunny day on the beach with a
glass of rosÃ©, some people might enjoy a more remote experience.
Swapping the sand for green hills and the rose for a peaty dram;
those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary should
consider a more northerly heading.
Madeline Mehalko - Senior Buyer - Discusses the resurgence of France's great craft spirit...
One of the most exciting things about the trade of wine &
spirits is the capacity of these products to age. A collector may
gather wines and spirits for many reasons, but one of them is for
the history. Wine, when bottled is a living, breathing thing which
changes and develops over time, rarely successful in living beyond
20 years except in the most exceptional cases. With brandy and
whisky however, the liquid in the bottle is like a snapshot in
history. Virtually unchanged since the day the golden spirit flowed
from the cask into the bottle, the oldest and rarest bottlings
offer a rare glimpse into the past.
