Join us in another exciting tasting. This time we will be tasting the latest series from Independent Bottler - The Whisky Cellar. The Whisky Cellar was founded by Keith Bonnington, a Keeper of the Quaich, in 2016. This Edinburgh-based company is a bottler of small batch selections of single cask whisky. “We are a flavour diversity driven bottler and our core message is that, if we love the spirit enough, we will bottle it, irrespective of age, region, cask type or style. We want to bring to market extremely high-quality one-off whiskies which represent good value to the consumer.” said Bonnington. Bonnington works with a panel of tasting experts to ensure only the very best whiskies are bottled for The Whisky Cellar. Between them, the panel has over 200 years experience. So, you know these single cask whiskies must be good!

We will also be introducing a brand new range called Pintail. The Pintail brand was originally established by Matthew Gloag and Sons in the 1930's for bottling their dry sherries. After the trademark lapsed, Keith picked it up to create a range of whiskies and wines. With a focus on unusual bottlings, and whiskies finished in rare (and often sweet) wine casks.

We are extremely fortunate to have Simon Spier of Select Scotch Whisky all the way from Adelaide join us, and guide us through this tasting. This tasting is one day before Whisky & Dreams, so for those going to the show, why not warm up here first? Don't miss out and grab a ticket today!
