Introducing Our
Special Releases 2016

12th September 2016

A series of small annual releases of limited edition, usually natural cask strength single malts; very old and unusual bottlings from famous and closed distilleries.

Sought after at whisky auctions and collectable too, these are above all magnificent and unusual whiskies to drink and enjoy - perfect for enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.

Exquisitely packaged by leading designers, two being released this year would make a very special gift for a 25 year old- or could celebrate a 25th anniversary.

Truly special, from individually designed packaging, to scarcity - often individually numbered, only a few thousand bottles worldwide. Sometimes, just a few hundred.
