  • Aberfeldy

    Aberfeldy

    Aberfeldy distillery is located where Perthshire’s highest mountain, deepest loch and longest glen meet, and is historically and geographically the ‘heart of Scotland’.

    Built by the Dewar’s family, who came gained their reputation worldwide for Dewar’s blended whisky, Aberfeldy was constructed to help the family meet the high demands placed upon them to supply premium Scotch whisky. Needing to guarantee a single malt whisky of superior quality, and lots of it, the two brothers were tasked with building a distillery that could produce the amount of product that was needed.

    Still to this day, Aberfeldy remains at the heart of Dewar’s blends, providing the signature heather-honey notes found in every bottle.

  • 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.

  • Akashi

    Akashi

    Founded in 1888 on the shores of the Seto interior sea in the city of Akashi, is the Eigashima distillery, one of the oldest Sake producers (1679).

    In 1919, Eigashima was the first Japanese distillery to ever obtain its licence to produce whisky. Whisky consumption was entirely local until 1984. Built on the Scottish model, the distillery has been making sophisticated whiskies in small batches for more than 30 years. Apart from whiskies, Eigashima is also known for producing various types of liquors, namely sake and shochu. The company has even started to grow vines and makes its own wine. The distillery produces in small batches and produces its whiskies for only one month of the year.

  • 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

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

  • Arbikie Highland Estate

    Arbikie Highland Estate

    Arbikie was first discovered as a farm distillery in 1794.

    Centuries past, distilling was a local craft with a truly local flavour. In these distant times, all ingredients for the pot still would be taken from the farm and immediate surroundings. Arbikie’s 1794 Highland Rye Single Grain Scotch Whisky is a celebration of this field to bottle tradition - reviving a genuinely authentic way of distilling and producing a spirit with a sense of place, and a taste of the land and sea that surrounds the distillery. This field to bottle process ensures that Arbikie understands the effect of every single ingredient vital to the entire whisky production and, in turn, they respect and nurture the environment that they depend on.

    Records show that rye grain was used in Scotch whisky production until the late 19th century and so, Arbikie set it their mission to revive this tradition. Rye is not very adaptable to the area. It is a tall grass which can be very challenging to harvest with combines. But, being a family-owned farm distillery, Arbikie had the room to innovate, with the land to plant rye seeds and the equipment in place to produce rye whisky. When they launched their first limited edition Highland Rye in 2018, it saw the revival of rye whisky in Scotland, the first rye scotch in two hundred years.

  • 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.  

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bruichladdich

    Bruichladdich

  • 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.

    Chichibu

    A pioneer in the industry, Chichibu is one of the few modern distilleries that has succeeded in building a formidable reputation in a very short time.

    This has been helped by Ichiro Akuto’s family history in the drinks industry, spanning more than 400 years, and his connections to both Hanyu and Karuizawa distilleries, producers of some of the most coveted Japanese whiskies in recent memory.

  • 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.

For a long time, only 2% of Craigellachie’s malt was retained for bottling as a single malt, with the majority going into the White Horse blend. It is now a component of Dewar’s White Label, having been bought by owners Bacardi in 1998.

    While the distillery used to just offer a 14yo expression, a 13yo, 17yo, 23yo and 31yo can now be found. The 31yo notably received the award of World’s Best Single Malt at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards.

    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.

  • Dingle

    Dingle

    Small. Artisan. Independent. Proud. Beag. Ceardaí. Neamhspleách. Bródúil.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident. Distilleries are not created equal, nor is the whiskey that flows from them.

    At Dingle Distillery, we have always had quality over quantity at the forefront of our thoughts. We never had any interest in distilling enormous quantities of bland whiskey. We are hugely passionate about flavoursome, well-crafted spirits.

    Dingle Distillery’s hugely anticipated Core Single Malt was released in 2021 and it’s #HereToStay

    This Core Single Malt release has been years in the making and comprises of malt whiskey that has been matured in ex-Bourbon, and PX sherry casks. 39% Bourbon, 61% PX Sherry. Bottled at 46.3% and non-chill filtered. This is a very interesting whiskey in which the component casks come to the fore at different stages.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Glen Grant

    Glen Grant

    Founded in 1839, Glen Grant is named after two brothers – John and James Grant. Successful businessmen, they not only understood whisky making but also logistics, and are in part resposinble for the railway reaching Glen Grant's home of Rothes.

    John's son John – more commonly known as The Major – took over the business in the 1870s and helped grow it into the distillery we know today, complete with extensive gardens that are now open for the public to explore.

    These days, Glen Grant is run by Dennis Malcolm OBE, who was born at the distillery in 1946, and it continues to impress, with a range of whiskies from the young and light – especially popular in Italy – to the old, rich and elegant.

  • 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.

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.

  • Glenallachie

    Glenallachie

    Founded in 1967, GlenAllachie is a distillery with a short history. Designed by famed distillery architect William Delmé Evans, it was built to create malt for blends and has remained little known until more recently. Shortly after its first distillery bottling was released in 2017, the distillery was sold and a new era has begun.

    Now with Billy Walker – of Benriach, Glendronach and Glenglassaugh fame – at the helm, a range of age statement whiskies are available and single cask releases are being prepped. Finally, whisky fans will get a chance to try an ongoing whisky from this quiet but excellent distillery.

  • 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.

  • Glendronach

    Glendronach

    The distillery was founded in 1826, however was almost completely destroyed by fire 10 years later. It was rebuilt and has passed through a succession of owners, including the Grant family, Teacher’s and Pernod Ricard. In 2008, Glendronach was bought by The Benriach Company, the second distillery in its portfolio.

    The company's expertise was quickly put to use and thousands of pounds of sherry casks were purchased to finish and further mature the distillery's stocks. This led to a revamped sherry-focused range which has been attracting fans every since.

  • Glenglassaugh

    Glenglassaugh

    Glenglassaugh's whisky was once solely used in blends. During its early days, it was a component in Teacher’s and later on was part of Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark and Langs.

    Since 2005, its focus has been on creating single malt whiskies and in 2013 it was taken over by Benriach. Glenglassaugh has since continued to concentrate on single malts with a succession of new aged releases and several innovative expressions.

  • Glengoyne

  • 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.

  • Green Spot

    Green Spot

    Green Spot is a pure 'pot still' Irish whiskey made for whisky merchants Mitchell & Son.

Now that Irish whiskey is experiencing well-deserved exposure, pure pot still is yet again rising in popularity, with Green Spot and its label mates leading the charge.

  • Hakushu

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    'With the support of whisky aficionados across the world every year, The Whisky Show offers whisky-focused education to learn about the passion and tradition that go into producing whisky for fans of all levels and experience.

  • Kyrö Distillery Company

    Kyrö Distillery Company

    Back in 2012, a group of friends were having a sauna and drinking rye whisky when they began to ponder why nobody was making rye whisky in Finland. Surprisingly, the idea of starting their own distillery still seemed like a good one the following morning and from there, the journey of Kyrö began.

    After a successful first attempt at new make spirit (fermented in the home of head distiller Kalle’s parents), the founding friends began their rye journey in an old dairy in the town of Isokyrö. In 2014, Kyrö’s stills were heated up for the first time and the first whisky was laid to rest. Ten years on, the distillery has grown from a wild dream to a craft powerhouse with skill and capacity – and pretty great spirits.

    People and the environment are important to Kyrö – that’s what Kyrö spirit is made of. The new whisky distillery makes use of locally produced biogas, while the original distillery and visitor centre operate with a combination of waste heat from distilling and renewable energy. From the tiny town of Isokyrö to the bright lights of Berlin, the team works with local communities and organisations that focus on reducing inequality. Kyrö’s focus is always local – wherever that may be.

    Kyrö’s spirits are always made from 100% Finnish wholegrain rye – be it whisky, gin or liqueur. But we know you’re here for the whisky: a whisky that has come a long way since it was just a dream in a sauna. The Kyrö team had no idea how to make whisky the “right” way, so they did it their way. Aged through dark winters and bright summers, Kyrö Malt is a whisky you haven’t tasted before – to be enjoyed with friends, with or without the sauna.

  • Never Say Die Bourbon

    Never Say Die Bourbon

    A combination of decades of distilling expertise, a careful selection of yeast strains and grain quality, and a never-before-seen final maturation in barrel across the Atlantic exposing Never Say Die to ocean air, humidity and temperature differentials offer a wholly unique flavour profile – blending traditional robust Bourbon notes with an adventurous twist.

    Never Say Die was co-founded by a team of trans-Atlantic partners with expertise in Bourbon supply chains, horseracing, PR and political campaigning, and an impressive history in distilling ultra-premium Bourbon. Never Say Die exists to embed the deep Kentucky links between horses and Bourbon, whilst personifying the historic relationship between England and the US. The Whiskey Show 2022 will be the brand’s first maiden race and will offer Bourbon lovers in England the very first opportunity to taste its unique flavours owing to its voyage, in barrel, across the Atlantic – the first Bourbon to make such a journey.

    Never Say Die Bourbon embraces the legacy of its infamous namesake. In 1951, in Lexington, KY, a foal had a rough birth and its life was in danger. Legendary horseman, John A. Bell III, was on site and poured a shot of whiskey down the throat of the struggling foal. Through the night, the horse made a dramatic recovery and was aptly named Never Say Die. Three years later Never Say Die won the biggest race in the world, the 175th running of the Derby Stakes at Epsom Downs (the Epsom Derby) at 33-1 odds, to become the first American-born horse to win the race in over 70 years.

    The distillery sources its water from an aquifer under the distillery accessed via a 100’ deep private well and providing water with four times as much dissolved minerals than found in other water supplies. New Riff believes in transparency, so all products feature an age statement and public mashbills.

  • 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.

    Established in 1826 at a time when the town was home to a thriving fishing port, Old Pulteney has a strong place in the heart and history of this coastal community.

  • Rampur

    Rampur

    Radico Khaitan, the mind behind Rampur whisky, is India’s oldest and biggest spirits producer. Its history dates to 1943 but it wasn’t until 1972, when the Khaiten family purchased the distillery, that it enjoyed great success.

    In April this year, the distillery released its first single-malt whisky to add to its collection of blended whiskies. The distillery is named after its home town, located in northern India, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. Due to its location, it experiences a higher climatic contrast between the seasons, which has a significant effect on maturation and adds to Rampur’s uniqueness. Its mission is to consistently deliver a timeless and quality whisky, and we are excited to have it for the first time at the show.

  • Roe & Co.

    Roe & Co.

    George Roe & Co helped build the golden era of Irish whiskey in the 19th century. Their distillery at Thomas Street in Dublin extended over 17 acres and they were Ireland's largest exporter of whiskey. As neighbours for hundreds of years George Roe & Co and Guinness were the two biggest names at the heart of Dublin’s historic brewing and distilling quarter.

    The tower and the pear tree sit directly across from the famous St. James’s Gate Guinness Brewery as a reminder of George Roe’s former prominence in the city's life and now as a source of inspiration for the new whiskey.

    Roe & Co is at the heart of this new vibrancy, celebrating the memory of George Roe, a true pioneer who helped build the original golden era of Irish whiskey. Refined, elegant, and with remarkable depth, a masterful blend of rich Irish malt whiskey and the smoothest of grain whiskey aged in bourbon casks.

    Using her 30 years of experience, our Master Blender Caroline Martin has created a versatile, premium whiskey. Roe & Co is a luxuriously smooth blend with a perfect harmony between the intense fruitiness of malt and the mellow creaminess of the grain whiskies.

    Roe & Co is non-chill filtered and bottled at a higher than usual abv of 45%.

  • 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.

    Between stimulus and response, there is a space. A space wide enough to fill with the greatest ambitions and wildest ideas. It was in this space that two friends fathered the idea to create a brave new world of spirits and wrote the first chapters for a book where the ending is unknown, but the title is undeniably Scapegrace.

    SINGLE MALT JOURNEY
    The Single Malt journey has been part of the brand’s strategic direction since early creation, with a real focus on pioneering the movement of New Zealand Single Malt Whisky on the global stage.

    This purposeful direction led to Scapegrace combing New Zealand to find the ultimate site to create New Zealand’s largest distillery and Single Malt project. With a great ambition to showcase New Zealand Single Malt to the world, we are very excited to release our first allocation of Scapegrace Limited Release Single Malt.

  • Single & Single

    Single & Single

    The Single & Single signature lies not in how our whiskies taste, but in how they make you feel. That’s said, we are uncompromising in what we seek out: cask strength, single cask, singularly exquisite, enticing, unusual and ideally aged.

    We have an undying penchant for sherry-matured spirit, and are ardent admirers of Scotland’s established distilleries. But we don’t limit ourselves. Some of our whiskies have been heavily peated, others come from uncommon sources, and a few have been finished in experimental casks. Our aim is to open minds, stimulate the senses and create memorable experiences, something one style of whisky could never do.

    Our mission is to relentlessly hunt down rare, atypical casks and bottle these for the dedicated whisky lover. It’s what we’ve always done, and it’s what fuels our future quests.

    The people of Slane have never done things by half. We break ground. We blaze trails. On this ancient land, a new religion was ignited. It’s where music was brought to the masses. And now it’s where Irish whiskey is perfected. Who would have thought you could turn a crumbling 250-year-old stable into
    one of Ireland’s most pioneering distilleries? We did. And then, well, we made it happen. And our whiskey? Created with the barrel-rising art and whiskey-making expertise of the Brown Family and born on the historic grounds of the Conyngham Family, our award-winning blend brings the legacies of two historic families together for generations to come.

    Our Place
    Slane Irish Whiskey was born in the legendary Boyne Valley. There could be no better setting in which to discover the nature of whiskey. Our rural setting is a sprawling tapestry of fertile land, wild countryside, and native woodlands surrounding the mythical River Boyne, the water source for our distillery.

    Our Commitment to Sustainability.

  • Starward

    Starward

    It uses Australian barley and is aged in apera casks (Austalian sherry). Starward’s journey started in 2004 when its founder, David Vitalie, opened a new distillery with local investors.

  • Stauning Whisky

    Stauning Whisky

    Reviving traditional methods lost to industrialization, Stauning whiskies are all made from local grain that is floor malted in-house.

    Distillation takes place in 24 small copper pot stills – under each of them scorching fire burns. These stills produce whiskies whose deep flavours reflect the surrounding landscape of the Danish West Coast. In 2018 Stauning Whisky moved into its new distillery. A structure with a dramatic silhouette and innovative engineering, that draws upon decades of classic Danish design and architecture.

    Its sharp angles crafted from burnt timber, mirror the old fishermen’s huts it shares the coast with. Stauning Whisky uses only local barley and rye all of which is floor-malted in-house using methods that draws upon centuries of whisky-making knowhow and tradition – but with a twist of Stauning ingenuity and innovation.

    Direct-firing the distillery’s 24 copper pot stills helps to create complex and deep flavours and adds weight and character to Stauning’s whiskies. It’s difficult and expensive, but it’s totally worth it.

  • 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.

  • Tomatin

    Tomatin

    Founded in 1897, Tomatin only really got going a decade later in 1909. From there it slowly but surely grew, adding more stills until it hit a colossal 23 in 1974, making it the largest distillery in Scotland with a notional capacity of 10 million litres per annum.

    Unfortunately the downturn of the 1970s hit Tomatin hard and it didn't get the chance to hit its maximum capacity. By 1986 it had closed. However, Japanese investors stepped in and saved the distillery, and has been rebuilding both its reputation and production ever since.

    Now well known for its excellent single malts, Tomatin is back on top and growing. We look forward to seeing what treats they bring to the show.

    Watt Whisky is an independent bottling company, based in Campbeltown, started in December 2019 by Mark and Kate Watt. Between them Mark and Kate have over 40 years experience in the Scotch whisky industry and have turned their experience and passion into the Watt Whisky range.

    Kate and Mark’s philosophy is that it’s all about the taste, and they bottle good, honest whisky, priced for drinking rather than collecting.

    Although they are known for whisky they also occasionally branch out into rum, and possibly other spirits in the future. Basically, as long as it tastes good and has spent time in a cask, then they’ll happily bottle it.

    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.

  • White Peak Distillery

  • 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.
