We are very excited that bottling of our new release is now completed and will start making its way to all our lovely customers next week. We don’t have any product shots yet (bottles haven’t arrived in Campbeltown yet!) but we’ll be sure to post some photos on our Facebook and Instagram pages as soon as we get our hands on the bottles.
In the meantime, we can reveal that our third batch of casks and first release of this year (we wanted to give everyone else a chance to try to figure out this Brexit crap before we had to!) is as follows;
Arran 8 Year Old

Creme Brûlée, mandarins, nougat, and buttered gingerbread

Tomintoul 10 Year Old
Distilled 2010 – Refill Butt – 246 bottles – 56.7% vol.
Creamy, butterscotch, marzipan, cashew nuts and raisins.
Should go without saying that all of these are non-chill filtered and natural colour. Some were sitting at a rather high natural strength though, so these have been reduced to 100 Proof (57.1%) which has become our default reduced strength for bottling.
Distributor and UK Stockist details can be found here (if you scroll all the way to the bottom!)
Cheers! Hope you like them as much as we do.
