The Whisky Distillery
Discerning malt connoisseurs, get whisked away at The Whisky Distillery. If the world of whisky seems a bit intimidating to get into – after all, flavour profiles, notes, and peatiness level are quite a bit to take in, join in one of their specialised tasting sessions as you pick up a tip or two from the whisky specialists.
Offering over 200 types of rare whisky (and growing) selection, treat yourself to a fine dram of whisky here. We hear that all bottles are meticulously sampled and sources from different distilleries across Scotland, ensuring exclusivity in some of the bottles found in store.
But if you must sample one, try the award-winning Glenmorangie 25 years old single-malt scotch whisky. Rounded and luxurious, Glenmorangie 25 years old has some lovely floral and citrus flavours alongside the spices and toasty sweetness one would expect from a quarter century in the wood. Known as the rarest and oldest member of the Glenmorangie family, this single malt of notable class will be your gateway towards a deeper investigation of this storied and ancient spirit.
