Ruadh Maor - For the members of Whiskybase

Selected a few months ago because we think it will appeal to a group of whisky drinkers. If you are looking for a nice drinking whisky: Ruadh Maor from Berry Bro's & Rudd for the Members of Whiskybase. A peated Glenturret matured in a sherry butt, not your average lemonade and a pleasant surprise. Limited to 120 bottles, we are not sure where the rest of the contents went. This bottle is now available in our shop.

Amrut - single cask for Whiskybase

Every now and then we are able to select nice whisky for our ever growing member base. This time we have selected a tropical Amrut. Aged in a single bourbon cask for almost 6 years,. Still the angels have been greedy in a short amount of time. Only an outturn of a 150 bottles. If you like your whisky to be tropical, look no further! This bottle is now available in our shop.
