Whisky Release Update!

Single Cask Whisky

The Moorland Distiller and Fraoch Mòinteach Single Malt Whiskies

Before we moved to Islay to work at Caol Ila, Lagavulin and Kilchoman distilleries we owned a wine and whisky retail business where we grew a strong reputation for bottling single cask single malt whiskies under the Queen of the Moorlands Rare Cask label.

Now that we are bottling whiskies once more we’ve launched our new label, The Moorland Distiller ‘Fraoch Mòinteach’ meaning moorland heather in Gaelic.

Our Latest Fraoch Mòinteach Releases

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition IX Highland Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

We are very fond of our latest single cask release from the Highlands of Scotland. This incredibly citrusy single cask single malt whisky was distilled at Teaninich Distillery in 2009. Teaninich whisky is quite hard to find but it is always great.

The spirit was matured for 11 years in American oak and bottled at a cask strength of 57.8% with no chill filtration or colouring.

The flavour profile of this stunning single malt whisky is very much of citrus fruits but one of the most enjoyable aspects is that of the texture and mouthfeel that it provides.

We have just 5 of bottles of this rare single cask whisky remaining priced at £85 each. If you would like to order a bottle, please complete the form at the bottom of this page or call or text David on 07875 405 980.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VIII Orkney Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

One of our latest offerings is this fantastic, delicious, fruity, spicy big hitting Orkney single cask single malt whisky. There is simply loads going on in this un chill filtered dram. There is no artificial colouring here but there is plenty of vanilla, the faintest waft of heather smoke and lashings and lashings of old English spangles.

It has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 63.1%abv and was distilled at one of only two malt whisky distilleries on Orkney Mainland.

Bottles are priced at £85 each. If you would like to purchase a bottle please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page or call or text David on 07875 405 980

A FEW OF BOTTLES STILL AVAILABLE AT PRESENT

What Is Involved In a Stag Party Whisky Tasting?

When you arrange a whisky tasting for your stag party with us we will liaise with you to ensure that the event is designed to fit around your other activities, and that the tasting commences at a time convenient to you. That might be before dinner, with dinner (I can pair the whiskies with each course), or as after dinner entertainment.

I bring all of the whisky, the glassware, tasting notes, all I need you to provide me with is some space to conduct the tasting. Some times I’ll use a projector and screen to show a virtual distillery tour, a dining room is great for this.

I’ve worked with whisky for 20 years, I’ve produced it, bottled it, marketed it, retailed it and presented it. For years I worked at the coal face of whisky production on the Isle of Islay in the Hebrides where I was Brand Home Manager at Lagavulin Distillery before becoming Distillery Manager at the largest distillery on Islay, the mighty Caol Ila. My tastings are therefore very authentic as well as being good fun.
