• Abasolo Whisky

    Abasolo Whisky

    Abasolo El Whisky De Mexico is crafted and distilled from 100% Mexican Cacahuazintle corn, which has been cultivated and passed down for more than 200 generations by local farmers for its distinct, extraordinary flavor.

    Deep, nuanced notes of roasted corn, honey, vanilla, black tea, and leather, revealed through nixtamalization, are true to our Mexican ancestral corn provenance and unlike any other whisky profile.

  • Aber Falls

    Aber Falls

    The village of Abergwyngregyn is home to our distillery, and sits at the foot of the majestic Rhaeadr Fawr waterfall. 

    Our team is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about whisky, and we all work with the same goal in mind – to create the best whiskies and spirits using the finest ingredients sourced from Wales.   Aber Falls has been embraced by the local community, and is working to establish strong links and partnerships with other Welsh businesses, with the goal of improving sustainability and driving the local economy and tourism trade.

  • Aberlour

    Aberlour

    The Aberlour Distillery is at the heart of Speyside, the country's premier whisky-making region. No fewer than half of Scotland's malt distilleries are located in Speyside, which is renowned for producing whiskies of subtle depth and elegance.

    Situated at the junction of the rivers Lour and Spey, the distillery is surrounded by glorious scenery, dominated by the rugged peaks of Ben Rinnes a short distance away. Pure spring water for making the whisky is drawn from the Lour, and the maturing spirit in the warehouse beneficially inhales the moist Speyside air.

  • Adelphi

    Adelphi

    The Adelphi Distillery is one of the lost distilleries of Scotland. It operated from 1826 to around 1907, and in 1880, the distillery was bought by Messrs A. Walker and Co. It was Walker’s great-grandson, Jamie Walker, who restored the Adelphi brand in 1993, this time not as a distillery but as an independent bottler.

    Jamie Walker appointed Charlie Maclean as chief Adelphi nose to help assist with the important job of cask selection and writing tasting notes. Charlie is still involved with the brand and recently had his first ever bottle of whisky named after him, the Maclean & Bruce bottle, a five year old Ardnamurchan Single Malt bottled by Adelphi.

    The Adelphi Selection changed ownership in 2003 which is when Alex Bruce joined the company as their Managing Director. Charlie remained on the team to continue assisting with cask selection and events. The company now have a sales and marketing team of five people as well as a fully operational bottling hall and warehouse in Fife with a team of ten.

    The criteria for whisky to become an Adelphi selection bottle, includes rarity and maturity, but above all flavour. Adelphi whiskies are both rare and sought after. Each single cask of whisky matures its contents very differently, imparting its own character to the whisky it holds and, as a result, there are never two Adelphi bottlings that are quite the same.

    Most recently, in 2014, Adelphi starting distilling their own whisky at the Ardnamurchan Distillery situated in the beautiful, rugged West highland peninsula, Ardnamurchan.

  • Amrut

    Amrut

    Amrut has been producing single malt whisky in Bangalore using the well known Scottish methods since 2004 and has become a highly awarded and revered single malt whisky globally. 

    Amrut use traditional Indian barley from the foothills of the Himalayas for their unpeated whisky - an ancient strain of barley that was abandoned by the yield-focused whisky producers in Europe long ago.    The barley is known as six-row barley and has a much higher concentration of protein in comparison to starch.  The yield is lower but gives more flavour and texture.  This Indian barley gives Amrut its rich mouthfeel and plenty of cereal notes.  For their peated whiskies, Amrut use peated barley sourced from Scottish malthouses which gives the smoky and citrusy flavours. 

    These special grains are carefully mashed, fermented and distilled in small batches to preserve the natural aroma and flavour of the barley and matured in oak barrels in a unique tropical condition, at an altitude of 3,000 feet above sea level in Bangalore, the garden city of India.  The whiskies produced here are subject to intense heat during the maturation due to the sub-tropical climate of the region, this means that the whiskies reach maturity three-to-four times faster than in more temperate climates however the angel’s share can be as high as 15% per year.

    In order to create the range of award winning whiskies at Amrut many types of different casks are used.  Refill American oak and first-fill bourbon barrels are the main focus as this type of wood is better able to deal with the intense heat of the region.  However many other types of barrels are used to give accent notes and to create the fascinating and intricate whiskies that would be unable to be produced anywhere else in the world.

  • Angels' Nectar Scotch Whisky

    Angels' Nectar Scotch Whisky

    Selected by Angels, Shared with Friends

    Inspired by the Angels’ share, the traditional name given to the whisky lost to evaporation during maturation, Angels’ Nectar is an exciting collection of Blended Malt and Single Malt Scotch Whiskies showcasing contrasting styles of Scotch Whisky.

    The Angels’ Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky - Original has been carefully blended from a selection of the finest Speyside and Highland malts and has a sweet nose of apple pie followed with a hint of heather honey and lemon on the taste. Enjoy straight up, with water on the side, or with ginger ale. The Original also makes for a luxurious hot toddy.  

    The new Angels’ Nectar Islay Rioja Cask Edition is a Single Malt from Islay, which has been matured in former Rioja casks for seven years. It delivers a sweet fruitiness on the nose, with the peat, of the smouldering embers variety, emerging on the taste, along with hints of homemade blackcurrant jam.  A wonderfully balanced dram of sweet fruit and smoke.

    The Cairngorms Edition bottlings are a series of Single Cask Speyside Single Malts, from a distillery in the Cairngorms National Park, bottled in partnership with the Cairngorms Trust, to support community and environmental projects in the Cairngorms National Park. Expect a traditional Speyside dram with plenty of sweet fruity notes and no smoke. The perfect dram for those that love the Cairngorms and whisky.

    Angels’ Nectar is bottled at natural colour and is non chill filtered, just the way the Angels enjoy their dram.

  • Ardbeg

    Ardbeg

    Like the other southern Islay distilleries, Ardbeg produces a heavily peated spirit, with a turfy smoke and seaspray character predominant in most bottlings. The distillery fell foul of the global whisky downturn in the late 1970s, which led to the distillery falling silent in 1981. Production resumed sporadically in 1989, but the distillery closed its doors in 1996.

    However, all was not lost. In 1997 Ardbeg was taken over by Glenmorangie plc, and the past two decades have seen a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for this previously neglected distillery, and it has risen to become a cult favourite and one of the best-known producers on Islay.

  • Ardnamurchan Distillery

    Ardnamurchan Distillery

    Ardnamurchan Distillery began distilling in 2014. Unusually in the whisky industry, ALL the power and heat requirements for the distillery come from local renewables – the river that provides the distillery’s cooling water has a hydro-electricity generator and the biomass boiler is fuelled by woodchip from local forestry – the overall footprint of the distillery is a light one.

    In addition, the by-products of the whisky-making process are recycled on the peninsula – the still energy-rich draff is combined with the pot ale to produce animal feed for use on the pensinsula.

    Their award-winning sustainable principles, from production to packaging, has won them worldwide media attention along with their QR code enabled Blockchain technology that can be found on their whisky bottles.

    The Ardnamurchan Distillery produces two signature styles of spirit, one peated and one unpeated. The distillery plans were outlined to produce a full-flavoured malt true to its West Highland region. The entire process has been designed to create an overall flavour profile that is expected from this area: gentle peat smoke, rich oily/honey and dark fruit palate, pepper, sea salt and a little more smoke in the finish.

    The first Ardnamurchan single malt launched successfully in September 2020 and they’ve continued to release batches of their AD Single Malt since then with the addition of their Limited releases and Single Casks, also part of their core range.

  • Arran

    Arran

    The Isle of Arran is known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’, with lochs, glens and castles galore condensed within 56 miles of its shore.

    During the 18th and 19th centuries, the island was famed for what was known as its ‘Arran water’ – in fact, in its heyday of illicit distilling, there were more than 50 distilleries on the island. Arran is currently more well known for its mountain peaks and beautiful coastline and, since 1998, for Arran whisky, which has established a strong fan base around the world.

    Arran distillery uses traditional methods of production and its fruity style is a result of the low temperatures used for fermentation and distillation. The distillery has had a huge run of success since its humble beginnings and is now concentrating further afield in markets such as Asia and the Americas.

  • Balblair

    Balblair

    As the quintessential distillery, Balblair sits on a remote and unspoiled hillside overlooking the Dornoch Firth in the North of Scotland.

    We are the oldest distillery in this part of Scotland, having been here since 1790.  A place where time passes slowly but a warm, unrushed welcome always awaits. From Black Isle barley to the open lade water that flows down the Edderton Hills capturing natural local flavour, this shapes our light, yet complex spirit created in our original squat neck pot stills. There is an intriguing, mystical quality to our home.

     As the Picts gathered over 3,000 years ago, like us they were watched over by the solitary Clach Bioarch standing stone which sits outside the distillery to this day.  An iconic carved Z Rod marking bears witness to this rich history and is symbolised on each and every bottle of Balblair. Our single malt is the product of the patience and dedication of our experienced craftspeople, who won’t settle for anything than the best for Balblair. We never rush and never compromise. From the exceptionally long 62 hour fermentation to the 41/2 hours of extremely slow distillation, we create optimal flavour in our unique new make spirit. Meticulously hand-selecting the best casks from around the world is the key to maturing our whisky.

    Once they are filled with our spirit, they are laid down within earthen floor warehouses to achieve perfect harmony of fruit, spice and sweetness, the epitome of the Balblair style. Each whisky is bottled at least 46% abv, is non-chill filtered and natural in colour. With underlying complexity and finesse, our single malt demonstrates an incredible balance of spirit and oak. Vitally, we don’t make a lot of this extraordinary whisky every year, with John McDonald, the distillery manager, insisting on quality, not quantity.

  • Bankhall

    Bankhall

    The Bankhall distillery is challenging the usual expectations surrounding English whisky – and ultimately creating something which is really new and exciting. Headed up by Vince Oleson the team at Bankhall have re-imagined the traditional whisky process in the UK, drawing inspiration and ingenuity from the US.

    The English Whisky movement began at the same time as the first drams were being distilled in Scotland.

    The most solid evidence of distilling in England is in a book from 1887, titled “Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom”, where Alfred Barnard lists 4 distilleries that he visited in England.

    The four he lists are Bristol Distillery, Bank Hall Distillery (in Liverpool) Lea Valley Distillery (in London) and Vauxhall Distillery (in Liverpool).

    Producing a sweet mash bourbon style liquid every batch is started fresh, resulting in a clean profile the team can then really bring to life. We’re a young distillery having a lot of fun and really experimenting with our process. As a result, Bankhall is booming with personality, and we’re super proud of the bold and balanced profile we’ve been able to capture.

  • Benriach

    Benriach

    A Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky as intriguing and extraordinary as Benriach could not have come to be without a unique whisky making heritage, dating from 1898, when founder John Duff built his distillery. Ruggedly beautiful, Benriach stands on the site of the old Riach farm in north Speyside, drawing water from a mineral-rich aquifer, deep beneath the distillery.

     

    Thanks to a long-standing tradition of distilling three styles of whisky; classic unpeated, Highland peated and triple distilled, together with an eclectic selection of casks from around the world, our whisky makers are able to explore the full flavour possibilities of Single Malt, creating some of the richest, most multi-layered whiskies in Speyside. This tradition continues today, under the guidance of Master Blender, Rachel Barrie. Benriach is the story of a hidden Speyside gem, quietly revealing its treasures to be discovered and savoured.

     
     

     

  • Benromach

    Benromach

    Benromach was built in 1898 and operated with only a few interruptions until 1983. However, it then closed and sat unused until 1998, when new owner Gordon & MacPhail reopened the refurbished distillery and started to distil.

    G&M is well known in the whisky world for its independent bottlings but had never owned its own distillery. With the purchase of Benromach, the company entered a new part of the whisky industry and have focused on producing old fashioned whisky. The distillery's modest half-a-million-litre capacity gives G&M enough spirit to split between their much-loved core expressions and experiments – from organic and peated whiskies to a host of cask finishes.

  • Berry Bros. & Rudd

    Berry Bros. & Rudd

    While most people are familiar with Berry Bros & Rudd as a wine merchant, it’s perhaps less well known that they have also played an important role in the world of independent spirits bottling – especially Scotch Whisky and indeed Berry Bros & Rudd have a strong claim to be the oldest bottler still in existence.

    Founded in 1698 at No.3 St. James’s St, the business has been bottling spirits since the 18th century, most likely beginning with Cognac and other brandies.   While Berry Bros also offered Blended Whisky in the early 19th centuary, they were one of the first merchants to also offer non-proprietary bottlings of single malt...  If you were to walk into No.3 St James’s in 1909 you would have been presented with a price list featuring 1885 Talisker, then a triple distilled malt, or 1897 Macallan, the latter available by the gallon for 28 shillings!  

    Berry Bros have continued to bottle whisky, rum and cognac ever since, and now export globally under the Berrys Own Selection label.  Berry’s remain scrupulous in their cask selection and have been awarded the accolade of Independent Bottler of the Year twice."

  • Bimber

    Bimber

    Bimber Distillery was founded by whisky lovers, with a mission to produce high-quality single malt whisky with character, using traditional methods that are rarely seen today.

    Their hand-crafted approach to whisky production passionately combines traditional methods, expertise and an absolute commitment to quality.

    The journey began at their single farm, where 100% of their barley is grown. It is then traditionally floor malted, hand-mashed and fermented slowly for seven days in wooden washbacks that were hand-made at their own cooperage. Bimber use direct fire to heat their small copper pot stills and mature their spirit in hand-selected casks. Finally, the whisky is bottled onsite at their distillery.

    They laid down their first casks on the 26th May 2016 and released their inaugural single malt whisky ("The First") three years later in September of 2019 – the limited release of 1,000 hand-numbered bottles sold out in just 3 hours.

    Bimber will be releasing a wide range of new single malt whiskies – all with their trademark accessible, fruit forward character – all handcrafted with passion.

  • Bladnoch

    Bladnoch

    Founded by the McClelland brothers and run by the family for 121 years, Bladnoch has a long history of whisky making. However, it's more recent past has been marked by limited production and its eventual closure. In 2017, Australian entrepreneur bought the distillery and has recruited a team of whisky industry veterans to bring it back to life.

    The distillery is now up and running again, and master distiller Ian MacMillan – a 40+-year veteran of the whisky industry – has been creating a range of expressions from the distillery's stocks of mature whisky. Once again, the distillery is building its reputation as Queen of the Lowlands.

  • Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon

    Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon

    Single Barrel Bourbon started with Blanton’s in 1984. 

    Nearing retirement, Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee was tasked with creating a bourbon of exceptionally high quality.  With careful reflection, he recalled the earlier days of his career in the late 1940s when he worked under Colonel Albert B. Blanton.  Colonel Blanton was the president of the distillery until 1952. 

    Mr. Lee remembered that when Colonel Blanton would entertain dignitaries and other important guests he would handpick “honey barrels” from the center cut of Warehouse H and have that bourbon bottled one barrel at a time to share.

    As a tribute to Colonel Blanton’s old tradition, Elmer T. Lee decided to name this new bourbon “Blanton’s Single Barrel”. And the world’s first commercially produced single barrel bourbon was born, revolutionizing the bourbon world forever.

    Both Colonel Blanton and Elmer T. Lee dedicated the better part of their lives to the pursuit of crafting the world’s finest bourbon. And at Blanton’s, we believe the finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel.

  • Bowmore

    Bowmore

    The only urban distillery on Islay, Bowmore sits at the heart of the island's capital. While 'urban' may be overstating the size of Bowmore town, the distillery is one of whisky's best known names around the world.

    Sitting between the heavily smoked and unpeated malts found elsewhere on Islay, Bowmore's idiosyncratic style varies from floral to fruity, and recently released vintages have started to hark back to the legendary fruit-bomb days of the 1960s and 70s. A more elegant approach to Islay smoke, Bowmore is always a hit at The Whisky Show.

    It’s great to see the Whisky Show is getting more and more people attending every year. It’s a great event with whisky enthusiasts from around the world and there is a great selection of whisky to try, including some amazing Dream Drams. David Turner, distillery manager.

  • Buffalo Trace

    Buffalo Trace

    With a history stretching back to the 1770s, when a distilling first took place on the site where the distillery now stands, Buffalo Trace is one of the oldest names in American whiskey.

    While the eponymous whiskey is one of the world's top selling, it's the company's other whiskies that are most sought after.

    The Buffalo Trace Antique collection – consisting of small batch releases from William Larue Weller, Thomas H Handy, Eagle Rare, Sazerac and George T Stagg – is one of the best known limited edition ranges in the USA and we look forward to having them available to try at the show.

  • Bunnahabhain

    Bunnahabhain

    Our beloved Bunnahabhain — which means ‘mouth of the river’ in Gaelic, as it stands at the mouth of the Margadale Spring on the shores of the Sound of Islay — first came into existence in 1883. However its origins can be traced back four years earlier when, in 1879, William Robertson of Robertson and Baxter Blending House, joined with the Greenlees Brothers to create the Islay Distillery Company. And so, with the distillery built on a site close to the Margadale River, in 1883 Bunnahabhain was born.


    In the early years, our distillery relied upon the sea trade. Armed only with a small village, a pier and lots of whisky making know-how, our forefathers received supplies by boat and sent adventuring seafarers back to the mainland along the Sound of Islay with casks of the ‘good stuff’.  It’s this daring spirit and coastal living which has made Bunnahabhain what it is today, and which continues to play an important role in the production of the ever increasing range of Bunnahabhain Single Malts.


    Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay to produce whisky using pure spring water and also boasts the tallest stills on Islay, both of which combine to produce a light, aromatic and complex spirit. At Bunnahabhain all our single malt is non-chillfiltered and natural in colour – the way whisky would have been produced at the hands of our forebears many years ago.

  • Copenhagen Distillery

    Copenhagen Distillery

    Copenhagen’s first and only whisky distillery was established in 2014; born from a synergy of visions and the urge for creating unique, locally crafted, and high-quality spirits.

    Our story began when a pioneering distiller and three entrepreneurial designers were united over their shared values of curiosity, passion, and a good glass of a fine spirit.

    We initially set out to change the world of single malt whisky, but given whisky’s long maturation time, our curiosity inspired us to explore other spirit categories.

    Much experimentation later, we can proudly present a broad range of truly unique and award-winning spirits – a line of versatile gins, our beloved Scandinavian Aquavits, and latest our new range of unconventional whisky’s.

    The distillery team consists of a dedicated crew of craftsmen with a whole-hearted love for artisan distillation and a desire to discover new spirits.

    In 2018 we received the Organic Certification – making us one of the very first organic certified distilleries in Scandinavia. Thus, we will continue to develop surprising and delightful spirits for the tongue, nose, and eyes, but with sustainability at heart.

  • Diageo

    Diageo

    While Diageo only appeared in 1997, when Guinness and Grand Metropolitan merged, its history stretches back to the early days of modern whisky.

    Among the many mergers and acquisitions in the company's timeline, you can find the biggest names in whisky: The Distillers Company, United Distillers and Vintners, and, of course, John Walker and Sons. There are very few whisky companies who have not been touched by Diageo's forbears over the years, and when it comes to old and rare whisky, few have as much experience or stock as they do.

    At the show, we are delighted to welcome Diageo's brand ambassadors, who will be cracking open incredible bottles of whisky from days gone by. From old Islay to legendary Speysiders and old-school blends, they'll have something for everyone. Pop by to try great drams and learn more about the history of whisky with Scotland's largest producer.

  • Douglas Laing

    Douglas Laing

    The Laing family have a long history in the whisky business. Douglas Laing was established in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing and is now continued by his son Fred Hamilton Laing and Fred's daughter Cara.

    Starting as a blender, the Fred Senior set up contracts with distillers to fill casks, which have led to the company's extensive stocks of incredible whiskies today. While often better known for its range of blended malt whiskies – including Big Peat, Timorous Beastie, Scallywag and The Epicurean – Douglas Laing also bottles a wide range of single casks and small batches, as it has for the last two decades.

    Over the past 70 years, the Laing name has been at the forefront of great whisky, and with the next generation on board, it looks to continue.

  • Drumshanbo

    Drumshanbo

    The Shed Distillery was set up by PJ Rigney in 2014 and situated in Connacht due to the area’s wild location and water quality.  Rigney has spent 30 years in the drinks industry working with brands like Bailey’s and Clontarf before setting up his own distillery, focusing on small batch Irish spirits which are all produced in house at The Shed.  The whiskey that is made here is unique to Ireland – Single Pot Still Whiskey.  It has similar rules to Single Malt but differs in that it must have at least 30% unmalted barley in the recipe in addition to malted barley.  This adds a cereal spiciness to the whiskey and a more weighty texture. Up to 5% other cereal grains may be added and Drumshanbo uses Irish Barra oats for a unique flavour profile.  After a triple-distillation, maturation is in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Drumshanbo is bottled at 43% ABV and they do not add any caramel to colour their whisky, nor do they use chill filtration.

  • East London Liquor Co

    East London Liquor Co

    East London Liquor Company was founded in 2014 by Alex Wolpert, an experienced bartender and manager who found that drinks with provenance and quality often meant paying over the odds. With a plan of creating accessible spirits in London he recruited a team of distillers and began building...

    Now leading a team of thirty, the distillery is a destination for drinks fans visiting London. With a range of gin, vodka and rum already on the market and London Rye Whiskey arriving in late 2018 – one of the first whiskies to appear in London in more than 100 years – business is booming. We look forward to seeing what ELLC bring to The Whisky Show.

  • Egan's

    Egan's

    Starting from a shop, the Egan empire grew to include a brewery, maltings and distillery, and by the 1800s was well known for producing excellent drinks.

    However, the downturn of the Irish whiskey industry in the early years of the 1900s and the War of Independence meant that over time the Egan name was lost. In 2013, family members from across the globe came together reform P&H Egan's Limited and launched their first whiskey – Egan's 10 Year Old Single malt – in 2014. More whiskies have followed, and life has been breathed back into a once-large name in the Irish whiskey world.

  • Elixir Distillers

    Elixir Distillers

    Port Askaig is a range of Islay single malt whiskies that embodies the unique spirit of Islay and its people.

    Elements of Islay is a range of iconic, small-batch, independently bottled whiskies. The range celebrates the diversity of whiskies that make Islay special, with a focus on the medicinal, smoky, elemental character of the island's whiskies. To maintain their personality, they are not chill-filtered and no colouring is added.

  • English Whisky Co

    English Whisky Co

    The Nelstrop family have a 600-year-old tradition of growing and processing grain. And although the initial idea was for a micro-distillery, customs and excise wouldn’t consider anything smaller than 1800 ltr stills (larger than some in Scotland!).

    So, back in 2005, in a field they owned down by the River Thet, the footings were dug and the building work began with Andrew at the helm as the main contractor. 16 years later The English Whisky Co. is firmly established as England’s Oldest and Original whisky producer.

    Andrew Nelstrop is currently the owner and relentlessly works to fulfil the distillery's main aim “My father James Nelstrop’s sole ambition was to produce the very finest single malt whisky. This is still the only goal of The English Whisky Co”

  • Fettercairn

    Fettercairn

    Founded in 1824 by landowner and campaigner for distillery licensing Sir Alexander Ramsay, Fettercairn has run quietly behind the scenes ever since. From the early days, where Ramsay hired local illicit distillers to run his stills, to the present day, where it mostly produces spirit for owner Whyte & Mackay's range of spirit, it has mostly flown under the radar. Until now.

    The distillery emerged from the shadows in 2018 with the launch of an ongoing 12-year-old, a 28-year-old special edition and a pair of long-aged whiskies – a 40- and a 50-year-old. While it's not the first time that the Fettercairn have revealed the distillery's extensive and well-aged stocks of whisky, the 12 Year Old is a sign that this time, it's hear to stay.

  • Four Roses

    Four Roses

    Four Roses' approach to making bourbon is very different to other American distillers.

    With two mash bills and five strains of yeast, they create 10 different spirits, which after ageing are combined to create the various different releases in the distillery's award-winning range.

    It's a unique approach and has led to the creation of some of America's most sought-after whiskies in recent years.

  • Gelston's

    Gelston's

    Henry James (Harry) Neill was a daring young Irishman with a fine nose for whiskey and a love of adventure.  In 1851 he set sail for Australia to make his fortune in the gold rush.

    When he reached Australia, Harry imagined something far bigger: instead of digging for gold he set up a pioneering provisions business, supplying the miners and their families. The business flourished, and Harry’s younger brothers sailed out to join him. Harry eventually sold his share to his brothers and returned to Ireland.  The call of Australian riches had been irresistible, but the call of home – and of Irish liquid gold – was stronger.

    In 1869, Harry embarked on his second great adventure. He bought his favourite blended Irish whiskey, renowned for its smoothness and depth of flavour, when its creator, Samuel Gelston, died. Harry’s dream was to make Samuel Gelston’s great-tasting whiskey even better, and to share it with Irish settlers around the globe.  So Harry used his pioneering business skills to export whiskey to Australia and New Zealand.

    After Harry’s death in 1891, his knowledge and passion passed down through the Neill family, through another four generations of whiskey pioneers who kept the family spirit alive. Harry’s descendants inherited his zeal for quality, his love of flavour, and his respect for integrity. Under their imaginative stewardship, the Samuel  Gelston’s worldwide following grew. Samuel Gelston’s Irish whiskey is still run by the Neill family, and whiskey drinkers around the world still bend to its siren call.

  • Glen Moray

    Glen Moray

    Traditionally a light and fruity whisky, Glen Moray's range has been expanded in recent years to include wine cask finishes and even peated spirit.

    With recent expansions increasing the distillery's capacity, we look forward to seeing how Glen Moray grows over the coming years.

    ‘The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show is a highlight in our whisky events calendar. Always a wonderful time to meet with friends, both old and new, and great to meet up with fellow exhibitors who converge from all corners of the world to attend. Looking forward to another fantastic year in a brilliant new venue space.’ Iain Allan

  • Glen Scotia

    Glen Scotia

    Cambeltown was once the whisky capital of Scotland, with more than 35 distilleries.

    With an abundance of peat and grain, and a good water supply, Cambeltown forged itself as a separate region for Scotch whisky, separating it from the Highlands, Lowlands, Speyside and Islay.

    During a quiet period in its history, the stills at Glen Scotia were once fired up by its neighbours at Springbank to prevent the distillery becoming mothballed, thus ensuring that Campbeltown still had three distilleries in production, ensuring it retained its status as a distinct Scotch whisky region.

    At the distillery, Glen Scotia produces both peaty and non-peaty whisky, with its signature style a fruity whisky with a coastal, maritime edge.

  • Glencadam

    Glencadam

    Founded in 1823 in the wake of the Excise Act, the distillery operated without much incident until 2000, when it was mothballed by owners Allied. That didn't last for long, and it was reborn under the ownership of Angus Dundee, also owners of Tomintoul, who have since been investing in the distillery both as a source of whisky for blending and as a single malt in its own right.

    The range is bottled without chill-filtration or colouring and is aimed firmly at whisky connoisseurs. The whisky itself is excellent and increasingly picking up fans around the world.

  • Glenfarclas

    Glenfarclas

    It's great to have such a prestigious show in the UK. It may be great for the public to come and try some amazing whisky, but it is a great show for the trade to see each other and see what is on offer for the year to come as so many new launches are done at the show. Can't wait for The Whisky Show 2016 to see some old friends and make some new ones.' George Grant, brand ambassador

  • Glenfiddich

    Glenfiddich

    'It’s simply a question of quality - with such a wide range of brands on show from globally recognised whiskies such as ourselves to small, new producers, The Whisky Show is THE show for anyone both serious about their dram or just at the beginning of their own whisky odyssey. We at Glenfiddich are delighted to be part of it again this year.' Mark Thomson, Brand Ambassador

  • Glengoyne

    Glengoyne

    The spirit spends nearly 3 times as long in the stills as other whiskies, for a superb fruity flavour.

    Our sherry casks take the longest to prepare in the industry, for deeper, richer flavour and superb natural colour.
    Scotland’s most ‘green’ distillery through our innovative sustainability practices.

    'The change of venue made the show feel more consumer friendly and as a result, there was a better atmosphere at the event. The usual well kent faces and a decent amount of new ones. Always a good event and well supported by the industry and consumer alike.' Alan Wardrop

  • Glenmorangie

    Glenmorangie

    Glenmorangie has existed as a distillery since 1843 when William Matheson bought a license to make whisky on the site of a brewery located near the Tarlogie Springs in Ross-shire in the highlands of Scotland.

    These days, former distillery manager Bill Lumsden is the head whisky maker, turning the spirit that he helped make into the award-winning range. Well-known for pioneering use of wine casks in maturing whisky, Glenmorangie continue to experiment, producing a small but always popular range of small-batch whiskies, pushing whisky making to its limits.

  • Gordon & MacPhail

    Gordon & MacPhail

    On 24 May 1895, a new grocers shop opened on South Street in Elgin. One of the first new employees was John Urquhart, a 15-year-old who was serving his apprenticeship under owners James Gordon and Alexander MacPhail. When MacPhail retired in 1915, Urquhart became a partner and then sole partner when Gordon passed away two weeks later. Since then, his family has run the company.

    With the fourth generation now in charge, Gordon & MacPhail continues to grow. While the grocers is still on South Street, it is the company's whisky business that is its focus. Along with an award-winning and widely respected range of single cask bottlings, G&M also owns Benromach distillery and produces a wide range of single malt expressions.

    With such a long history behind it, G&M has some of the most impressive archives in the whisky business. With almost 100 years of bottlings available to them, we look forward to seeing what they will bring along to the Old & Rare show.

  • Hakushu

    Hakushu

    Built at the foot of Mt. Kaikomagatake in the Southern Japan Alps, Hakushu produces very different whiskies to those from sister distillery Yamazaki.

    Focusing on smokier spirit, Hakushu's whisky varies from the rich and peaty to the light, zesty and smoky, expanding both the range of malts that Suntory has to produce its award-winning blended whiskies and the number of great Japanese single malts that the company release to fans around the world.

  • Hibiki

    Hibiki

    Suntorys Hibiki is Japans most famous and prestigious blend, and has played a significant role in catapulting Japanese whisky onto the global stage.

    When its prestige 30 year old edition won the title of Worlds Best Blend at the inaugural World Whisky Awards in 2007 and repeated the feat in 2008, it was obvious that Japanese whisky was equal to the challenge of being a worldwide brand. Remarkably, Hibiki 21 year old went on to win the same prize in 2010 and 2011 to place beyond doubt Suntorys status in the highest echelon of blended whisky.

  • Highland Park

    Highland Park

    Established in 1798 on Orkney, Highland Park is one of the most remote Scotch whisky distilleries in the world.

    This northerly island location gives access to unique heather peat from the distillery's own moor, water from the same spring that has fed the distillery for more than 200 years, and a cool maritime climate that allows the spirit to mature slowly, developing into the rich and layered whisky that is consistently lauded by connoisseurs and experts.

  • Isle of Raasay

    Isle of Raasay

    Co-founders Bill Dobbie and Alasdair Day first met in 2013 and formed R&B Distillers with the common goal of building Scotland’s leading artisanal distiller. Focusing on local production, provenance, quality and doing things differently. By 2015, they had identified the Isle of Raasay as providing the ingredients for the perfect dram, and revitalising the Isle of Raasay’s nineteenth-century Borodale House into a state-of-the-art distillery, visitor centre, and luxury accommodation was granted in 2016.

    Starting with a blank sheet of paper, they set about designing a distillery to create exceptional whisky that develops elegance, complexity, and depth early on in the maturation process that encapsulates Raasay’s style, character and impressive geological variety.

    Inspiration for the Isle of Raasay Single Malt came from some older styles of Hebridean single malts. Styles that had been lost through the ages and are not as prevalent anymore. This became the inspiration for the Isle of Raasay Distillery signature flavour profile: a lightly peated whisky, balanced with rich dark fruit flavours.

    Since its establishment in 2017, the Isle of Raasay Distillery has brought job opportunities to the island, worked closely with other local businesses and become embedded in the island’s tight-knit community. Part of the distillery’s ethos is to produce, mature, bottle and market every drop of spirit directly from the island. This seeks to maximise the influence of the island on the spirit, and the distillery on the island. To quote the inimitable Whisky Writer Dave Broom at our distillery opening: we are not just making alcohol, we are making spirit.

    The distillery now employs more than 25 people on the island; at least one of the employees is about to become a new parent too! An early indicator of creating inter-generational values; making sure this special island of 161 people continues to thrive.

  • J.J. Corry

    J.J. Corry

    Founded in 2016, JJ Corry are an old-fashioned company who practise what is now a lost art in the world of Irish whiskey – bonding.

    Once the regular way that whisky was matured and bottled, bonders bought casks from distillers and aged them in bonded warehouses, before vatting and bottling them under their own labels. JJ Corry is reviving this lost tradition, walking the path trodden by grocers and merchants of the past to create its own great whiskies.

  • Jack Daniel's

    Jack Daniel's

    Made in Lynchburg, Tennessee, Jack Daniel’s was founded in 1875. Old No.7 is the world’s best-selling American whiskey and the cult brand has a legion of fans.

    Sinatra’s love of Jack Daniel’s was recently acknowledged by the distillery with the release of Sinatra Select, made using special ‘Sinatra barrels’.

    Ironically, given it is home to one of the most famous whiskeys on the planet, Lynchburg is a dry county, and has been since the Prohibition era, which means that it is illegal to sell alcohol in any shop or restaurant within the town.

  • James Cree's Cattle Ranch Whiskey

    James Cree's Cattle Ranch Whiskey

    James Cree was a Scottish whisky maker and entrepreneur who married the independent whisky bottler John Crabbie’s eldest daughter Agnes in 1853. James was the son of William Cree who together with John Crabbie bought a wine and spirit business from James Wyld in 1825 which became ‘Crabbie and Cree’ the precursor to ‘John Crabbie and Co.’

    In 1888 James Cree moved with his family to New Mexico to a stretch of land along Little Creek in present-day region of Alto to look after his investment in a cattle ranch, with the ambition of breeding his beloved Scottish Angus cows, with the native Mexican cattle.

    What motivated him to move his family to New Mexico leaving their country estate ‘Tusculum’ is a fascinating topic for speculation.

    His ranch manager was the famous Pat Garrett an American Old West lawman, bartender and customs agent renowned for killing Billy the Kidd. He had served as the sheriff of Lincoln County, New Mexico as well as Doña Ana County, New Mexico but was lured away from hunting rustlers with a generous offer of financial recompense.

    One of the first things James did after arriving in New Mexico was to register the ‘V V’ brand to himself. The V V brand was chosen because, while simple, it was also hard to alter…the two requisites of a good cattle brand. The simplicity allowed Cree’s cowboys to quickly brand V V with four strokes of the running iron.

  • James E. Pepper Rye Whiskey

    James E. Pepper Rye Whiskey

    The Pepper family built and operated two main distilleries: first founding the site that today hosts the Woodford Reserve Distillery, and later the James E. Pepper Distillery in Lexington. In the late 1960s the bourbon industry hit hard times, and both the brand and distillery in Lexington were abandoned for over half a century.

    In 2008 the brand was relaunched by whiskey entrepreneur Amir Peay. A decade-long campaign of thorough historical research and a collection of historic materials was used to retell the lost story of this iconic American whiskey brand and to distill new stocks of "Pepper" whiskey (visit the History Page to learn more). To initiate the relaunch of the brand, partnerships with the Lawrenceburg Distillery in Indiana and the Bardstown Bourbon Co. in Kentucky were formed.  Today some of our whiskies contain whiskies distilled at those distilleries.

    After a multi-year construction effort, the historic James E. Pepper Distillery which after fifty years of neglect had fallen into a terrible state of disrepair, was completely rebuilt and restored. In December 2017, the distillery once again began distilling whiskey using the same historic recipe as when it shut down in 1967. Due to the diligence of research made to re-build the distillery, it was also possible to revive its federal distillery permit for the historic distillery: DSP-KY-5, the 5th license ever issued in the state of Kentucky. Newly assigned DSP numbers are in the 20,000s.

    The legendary story of James E Pepper doesn’t end there. It is also said that the Old-Fashioned cocktail was invented in honour of Colonel Pepper by a bartender at the famed Pendennis Club.

    James E Pepper "1776" Straight Rye whiskey is complex and flavourful; notes of mint, cloves, eucalyptus, chocolate, & honey. Our most popular whiskey!

     

     

  • John Crabbie

    John Crabbie

    Established in 1801, Crabbie is one of the oldest whisky names in Scotland, indeed, Crabbie was one of the first ‘legal’ producers of Scotch Whisky. In seeking out the best, our founder John Crabbie was a true pioneer and innovator in the Scottish whisky industry.

    He was one of the first to develop the idea of blending whisky to improve quality & consistency in the 1800’s when few were as forward thinking and created Crabbie’s Ginger Wine, through steeping ginger in wine.

    Amongst his many achievements he also created one of the first whisky cocktails – the Whisky Mac – blending his whisky and ginger wine as well as being the creator of the ubiquitous ‘Hot Toddy’.

    Not only did he blend whisky, he also distilled it and along with Andrew Usher, he co-founded North British distillery.

  • Johnnie Walker

    Johnnie Walker

    Founded in the first half of the 19th century, John Walker and Sons, makers of Johnnie Walker, are one of the longest continuously running whisky making companies in the world.

    Starting from humble beginnings as a grocer, the company grew through the 1800s until it was selling some 100,000 gallons of blended whisky a year in the 1860s.

    The modern era began in 1908, when the flagship blend became known as Johnnie Walker, named after the company's founder.

    Now a subsidiary of Diageo, the world's largest drinks company, John Walker and Sons continues to produce a wide range of whiskies, from the entry-level Red Label all the way up to the £12,000 a bottle John Walker & Sons Diamond Jubilee, released in 2012.

  • Jura

    Jura

    With less than 200 people living on the island, Jura's distillery is at the heart of the community and sits in the middle of Craighouse, the island's biggest (and only) town.

    The present Jura distillery was built in the 1960s on the site of a previous distillery that had been founded in 1810 but closed and dismantled in 1901. Since the 60s the Jura has slowly grown and under the stewardship of owners Whyte & Mackay, has again become a well-known whisky.

  • Kavalan

    Kavalan

    Kavalan Whisky is renowned worldwide for its high-quality single malts and innovative use of different casks.

    As the first and only family-owned whisky distillery in Taiwan, they are unique in their approach to dealing with the sub-tropical climate, creating a range with a wide variety of flavour profiles and consistent smoothness. ​

    Winning 2015’s WWA ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ award and 2016’s ‘World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt’ established Taiwan’s whisky making credentials, but more recently, Kavalan was named 2021 “Visitor Attraction of the Year” at Whisky Magazine Whisky Icons Awards. 

    The distillery’s founder spent years searching for the perfect site and, after finding the cold, pure spring water flowing through the Snow Mountain and the cleanest air in the country, Yilan in Northeast Taiwan was chosen as the location for the King Car distillery. Taiwan’s sub-tropical climate also provides Kavalan with another advantage: their whiskies age and mature at a faster rate than those produced in different regions across the globe.

    Aside from purchasing copper stills from Scotland, Kavalan brought in professional whisky consultant Dr Jim Swan to implement highly specialised distilling and blending as well as inviting a world-class specialist to join its R&D team. These investments in the distillery and its people ensure Kavalan whisky is of the highest standard possible. 

    The diverse range of whiskies created at Kavalan all start from the same fruity, tropical and precise new make.  From there the spirit goes into many different types of cask, some of which will be kept as single casks and go on to become part of the award winning, single cask type Solist range.  Others will be vatted together to create the unique and harmonious whiskies that Kavalan has become known for around the world.

  • Kurayoshi

    Kurayoshi

    KURAYOSHI DISTILLERY, which produces the Matsui whisky range, is located in the town of the same name in Tottori prefecture, has been producing Japanese spirits since 1910. Sake, shochu and brandy enabled this micro-distillery to develop unique expertise combining tradition with innovation.

    The distillery’s proximity to Mount Daisen means that it can draw on fresh water from this mountain’s generous snowfall. Whiskies from the Kurayoshi distillery have consistently impressed the judging panels of various international competitions and won numerous awards, those based on exacting blind tastings.

    MATSUI WHISKIES are made by Matsui Shuzo at the Kurayoshi distillery. The distillery is in Tottori prefecture in the southern part of Honshu island, known for its sand dunes. The distillery’s geographic location means that it can take advantage of pure ground water from Mount Daisen. To complement the ‘The Kurayoshi Pure Malt’ and ‘The Tottori Blended’ ranges, the distillery has just launched another range of three products: ‘The Kurayoshi Single Malt’, paying tribute to Japanese culture and its ‘Ukiyo-e’ artform. Each label in the range has been carefully thought out. Katsushika Hokusai, with his ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’ print series, was selected to demonstrate the power of ‘The Matsui - The Peated’ Single Malt via his famous print ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’. His view of ‘Umezawa in Sagami Province’ was chosen to represent the freshness of ‘The Matsui - Mizunara cask’ Single Malt. Finally, the artist Kikukawa Eizan and one of his many portraits of women walking through a sakura meadow was selected to highlight the delicate ‘The Matsui - Sakura cask’ Single Malt.

  • Lakes Distillery

    Lakes Distillery

    The Lake District has long been a crucible for creativity, a place in which the imagination can flourish, and it’s no different for Dhavall Gandhi. The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker takes his inspiration from the UNESCO World Heritage Site where a state-of-the-art distillery has been built meticulously within a 160-year-old farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.

    Sculpted into the very bedrock of the distillery, a quatrefoil represents The Lakes Distillery’s core beliefs. Faith, Hope, Luck and Love are the compass points of their journey, shaped by like-minded adventurers who appreciate their creative approach to whisky making and the rewards of its discovery at the intersection of art, science and nature.

  • Langatun

    Langatun

    As a newly graduated master brewer, Jakob Baumberger founded a distillery on his father's farm in 1857.

    In 1860, he took over a small brewery in Langenthal (Celtic: "Langatun"), which he subsequently expanded into a flourishing business alongside the distillery. This was the foundation stone for today's distillery, which was founded by Jakob's descendant, Hans Baumberger, in 2005 and was allowed to move into the Kornhaus in 2014.

    The history of Langatun is above all the history of people, places and products that reflect the company's core values: Honesty, Quality, Commitment and Innovation.

    In addition to the distillery, Langatun today also operates a visitor center in the Kornhaus, where interested parties are welcomed for guided tours with tastings and distilling seminars. The premises can also be rented for events of all kinds.

  • Loch Lomond

    Loch Lomond

    Loch Lomond distillery is one of Scotland’s most versatile, given the number of styles of whisky that can be produced there.

    This is thanks to its two pot stills, four Lomond stills and a single Coffey still for grain whisky – it is the only distillery in Scotland to produce both grain and malt whisky.

    The single malts made at Loch Lomond are (in ascending order of peatiness): Loch Lomond, Inchmurrin, Glen Douglas, Old Rhosdhu, Craiglodge, Inchmoan, Croftengea and Inchfad, with Loch Lomond and Inchmurrin the most readily available.

  • Nikka Whisky

    Nikka Whisky

    Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky, was born into a sake producing family in Hiroshima.  Not content with making this traditional Japanese alcohol, the young Taketsuru travelled to Scotland to learn the art of whisky making. 

    After studying at Glasgow University and completing apprenticeships at Longmorn, Bo’ness and Hazelburn distilleries, Taketsuru and his new, Scottish wife Rita returned to Japan with the dream of producing whisky.

    The first Nikka distillery was founded in 1934 on the northernmost Island of Hokkaido in a small town called Yoichi and to this day still produces the same style of single malt – peaty, rich and salty, and still utilises direct, coal-fired stills.  In 1969 he opened a second distillery near Sendai called Miyagikyo that produces a green, grassy and herbaceous style of single malt as well as producing grain whiskies using a Coffey Still.  Both distilleries have the ability to produce many different types of spirit which adds complexity to the beautifully balanced blended whiskies that Nikka is known for.

    The range of whiskies produced by Nikka has won many awards and accolades over the years.  From winning “Best of the best” at the 2001 Whisky Magazine Awards – the first ever Japanese whisky to win this award, to multiple “World’s Best Blended Malt” titles for the Taketsuru range at the World Whiskies Awards.

    Nikka Whisky has become a fixture in Japan and throughout Europe, known for its passion for craftsmanship, quality and flavour. Masataka Taketsuru passed away just 10 years after the construction of Miyagikyo, at the age of 85. He forever remains the founding father of Japanese whisky, and to this day, Taketsuru’s spirit continues to live on through the Nikka blending team, whose quest for excellence in Nikka whiskies perpetuates his memory.

    “The Whisky Show's new, bigger venue, meant that Nikka Whisky's larger space was an ideal opportunity to communicate to even more consumers. We are always delighted by the level of knowledge and awareness the show's attendees have about our products and look forward to seeing them again at the show this year!”

    Emiko Kaji, international business development manager.

  • Sagamore Spirit

    Sagamore Spirit

    We are proud to call Baltimore our home and since April 2017, have been distilling and aging our proprietary straight rye whiskey from our distillery on Baltimore’s waterfront. It takes 4 years to get to the perfect taste so stay tuned!

    But we wanted to share our Maryland-style rye whiskey before our distillery was built. So we asked our friends in Indiana to distill our two different proprietary mash bills for us. They make great whiskies out there and we couldn’t be prouder of the product. Once the whiskey is aged, it’s shipped to our Maryland distillery in barrels and our distilling team proofs it with Sagamore Farm spring water, before hand-bottling and labeling each one.

  • The Gladstone Axe

    The Gladstone Axe

    In many ways Blended Malt Scotch represents the best of the best – Malt Whiskies selected from Scotland’s best Single Malt Distilleries – blended together so the sum is greater than the parts. 

    Our two expressions of The Gladstone Axe – American Oak and The Black Axe represents two distinct flavour profiles and offer a delicious, simple introduction to the plethora of flavours that exist in Scotch.  Black Axe is spicy, smoky, and rich – but not overpowering like some of the “serious” Islay Whiskies – and American Oak has a soft, honey, vanilla and spicy profile that makes it a deliciously drinkable dram.

  • The Glasgow Distillery Company

    The Glasgow Distillery Company

    Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky is Glasgow Distillery’s signature single malt and demonstrates our commitment to authenticity and quality, realising our mission as contemporary urban distillers. Honouring the heritage of single malt distilling in Glasgow by using the date 1770, paying homage to the original foundation of Glasgow Distillery, before it’s closure in the 20th Century.

    Proudly handcrafted in custom made copper pot stills, combining the finest barley and the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine, matured in the hand selected casks, always non-chill filtered and only ever natural in colour. The Glasgow 1770 Signature Range includes: The Original, Peated and Triple Distilled; three single malts that have proudly established themselves as Glasgow’s Single Malt.

    Malt Riot is Glasgow Distillery’s blended malt whisky, telling the tale of the people of Glasgow who came together for what they believed in. Inspired by the malt riots that took place in Glasgow beginning in 1725; where the Government attempt to impose a tax on Scotland’s Malted Barley. The Scots, foreseeing an increase in the cost of whisky, beer and other daily essentials rise up in opposition.

    In Glasgow, malt stores are barricaded, and the devilish excise men are chased from the city.  The home of the local member of parliament, a former tax collector, is destroyed. In a bizarre twist, the MP is compensated for the damage but uses the money to purchase the Island of Islay and part of Jura. He encourages local farmers to seed surplus barley and thus ignites the legal production of Single Malt Scotch whisky on the Islands across the nation.

  • The Glenturret

    The Glenturret

    Originally owned by Sir Patrick Murray of Ochtertyre, The Glenturret Distillery is mentioned in the purchase records of the Barony of Ochtertyre as far back as 1763.

    Today, the distillery still sits proudly in its original location on the edge of the historic town of Crieff. Known locally as ‘The Hosh’ – it is a picturesque and secluded setting that has long provided a home for distillers, both legal and illicit.

  • The Lindores Abbey Distillery

    The Lindores Abbey Distillery

    Our journey began twenty years ago with a visit from acclaimed whisky writer Michael Jackson who wrote in his book ‘Scotland and its whiskies’ “For the whisky-lover, it is a pilgrimage” he was writing of Lindores Abbey and that inspired our founder and ‘Custodian of Lindores’ Drew McKenzie Smith to establish a state of the art distillery on this sacred ground, working closely with Forsyth’s of Rothes and the late Dr Jim Swan.

    We started distilling in 2017 and whilst our spirit matured we created our ‘Aqua Vitae’, a botanical spirit infusing our award-winning new make spirit with herbs foraged from the Abbey ruins and spices to create a beautiful light spirit drink. Then in 2020, our New Make Spirit was voted the best in Scotland and we were delighted when we released our first single malt earlier this year to much acclaim and to be presenting it to the whisky connoisseur’s attending Whisky Live London.

  • The M&H Whisky Distillery

    The M&H Whisky Distillery

    Take true passion for single malt whisky, add the boldness and cutting-edge innovation that the Israeli startup ecosystem is famous for, mix it with no-compromising commitment to craftmanship and tradition, and you get M&H, Israel's first whisky distillery.

    We started with a dream about a thriving distillery that produces world-class spirits. Stepping into terra incognita, we knew that this was going to be a long journey full of twists and turns, but we never doubted it would be worth it. And we were right.

    From the beginning we have been aiming for the best: craft enticing spirits to sip after a day at work, at home or in the neighborhood bar, and special editions to be savored in celebrations. We tested ingredients, experimented with the recipes and traveled the world to select the most suitable casks. We hired the late Dr Jim Swan, one of the world's most accomplished master distillers and an expert in hot climate distillation and maturation, as an advisor.
     Compromise is never an option. We pursue perfection in every aspect, from our custom-made traditional copper pot stills to quality control throughout the process. And of course, we built an outstanding team of enthusiastic people who make everything happen.

    Israel's 300 sunny days in an average year and the Mediterranean climate are our greatest advantage. Hot climate maturation means that our whisky ages rapidly, yet significantly gracefully. Our country's geographical diversity is our playground. We leave selected casks to soak the unique terroir of the country and bring new flavors into our single malt.

     

     

  • The Oxford Artisan Distillery

    The Oxford Artisan Distillery

    From the moment The Oxford Artisan Distillery was a twinkle in our eye, we knew our distillery would be different. Not different for different’s sake, but different to be better; to be more sustainable, more thoughtful, more considerate of the world around us.

    Working with our organic and regenerative farming partners, mostly within 50 miles of our distillery in Oxford, this is sustainable artisan production at its best; regenerating the land, supporting biodiversity and managing every stage from seed to still and into the bottle, with the use of absolutely no pesticides, fungicides or herbicides.

    At our distillery’s home, a carefully restored, Grade II listed, 18th century threshing barn, our whiskies are produced from our unique heritage grains in our Steampunk-esque still, Nautilus. Nautilus was painstakingly built from scratch to an original design by South Devon Railway Engineering, a team of steam engine craftsmen and some of the last great industrial coppersmiths in England – the team rebuilt the boiler of no less than the Flying Scotsman.

    The production of rye whisky has been part of The Oxford Artisan Distillery’s core plan from day one, with the first casks laid down more than 3 years ago, a few months after the distillery opened in July, 2017. The first three batches of Oxford Rye Whisky launched this year to wide acclaim, with Oxford Rye Whisky Batch #4 to follow in September 2021 and further expressions in the coming months.

Nor will they add any caramel colouring or other additives. 

    Mark and Kate said, ’this will be our first ever whisky show with Watt Whisky so we’re very excited to be able to attend and tell everyone about our first release and our plans for the future.'

     

  • Westland

    Westland

    Unlike most distilleries in the USA, Westland do not make a traditionally American style of whiskey.

    Instead they pioneer the distilling team's own interpretation of the single malt whiskies made elsewhere in the world. With a range that encompasses the light and fruity, and the heavy and peaty, Westland is pushing the boundaries of distilling in America.

  • Westward Whiskey

    Westward Whiskey

    For nearly two decades, we have brought something new, different, and relevant to whiskey, and we are proud to serve as a leading voice for American Single Malt.

    Westward began in 2004 –when Founder & Master Distiller Christian Krogstad –a former brewer and winemaker –had a vision: to make a distinctive American Single Malt inspired by the American Northwest and the culture, climate, and abundant natural resources that have earned the region such reverence and renown.

     At the time, there were only three dozen craft distilleries in the U.S. Today, helmed by Christian and Thomas Mooney, who joined the team as Founder & CEO in 2011 to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a whiskey entrepreneur, Westward is a proud leader among more than 2,200 producers. 

    We are a whiskey of the elements, born from the unique culture, climate, and abundant resources of the American Northwest. Westward is matured to perfection in Oregon, where our hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters are the ideal environment to raise a world-class whiskey.

    Our Process

    At Westward, there are no shortcuts, and therein lies the beauty. We pursue perfection by creating flavor in every step of our long, slow process.

    Brewing.

    We begin by brewing an artisanal American Ale from scratch, using locally malted barley, ale yeast, and slow, low-temperature fermentation.

    Distillation.

    We distill twice in custom low-reflux pot stills that we designed to create a robust spirit and transform our fresh, flavourful Ale into whiskey.

    Maturation.

    We mature to perfection in new, lightly charred American Oak barrels selected to accentuate the bold characteristics of our whiskey.

    Mingling.

    We mingle our barrels in small batches to achieve Westward’s signature flavour profile – balanced and bold.

  • Woodford Reserve

    Woodford Reserve

    The original distillery was built by Elijah Pepper, who had been making whiskey in the county since 1797. When his son took over the business in 1831, he built the present distillery building which was completed in 1838. Steeped in history, Dr James Crow, often referred to as the ‘father of Bourbon Whiskey’ developed some of the methods that led to the legal definitions of straight bourbon and his research and writings have greatly benefited fellow distillers and future generations.

    Woodford fell victim to the adverse market conditions and the owners were forced to mothball the distillery before selling it in 1972. The site fell into disrepair and for a time was used for farming. In 1993, however, the distillery was bought back by its previous owners and after a multi-million-dollar refurbishment, Woodford Reserve is still going strong, with more than 100,000 tourists visiting each year.
