Private Corporate Whisky Tasting Experience!

A Very Special Whisky Tasting in Sheffield

I hosted a very special whisky tasting at the Tankersley Manor Hotel and Spa near Sheffield at the weekend. This booking was one of those that was postponed due to Covid 19. It was lovely to be asked to host the whisky tasting as it is the third that I have hosted for this company already. It is nice to know that they enjoy my tastings so much!

Whisky Dinner

My customer had invited their guests from all around the world to attend a multi day training session, I had been asked to host the whisky tasting at their dinner on the last night of the course. I served two of the whiskies with dessert and with the cheese boards. I decided to serve Auchentoshan 12 year old Lowland single malt whisky from the banks of the river Clyde in Glasgow. There was a lovely selection of cheeses on the table and I recommended that guests enjoy the lovely sherry matured Bunnahabhain 12 year old single malt whisky from the North East shores of the Isle of Islay in the Southern Hebrides where I spent a number of years living and working.

The Whisky

After the Auchentoshan 12 year old single malt whisky and the Bunnahabhain we tasted another 4 whiskies.

I regularly show Talisker 10 year old single malt whisky from the Isle of Skye. I love to give my guests Talisker to try as to me it is one of the best whiskies from Scotland for portraying it’s provenance, placeless and for speaking about terroir. I was lucky enough to live on the Isle of Skye for a while and even just the nose of Talisker reminds me of walking back from the pub in Portree on a Saturday night and experiencing the smell of peat reek coming from the croft kitchens.

Following Talisker I served Caol Ila 12 year old single malt whisky from the Isle of Islay. Caol Ila was the first whisky that when I tasted it didn’t simply taste of whisky. It wasn’t until I tasted Caol Ila in the old Earl Grey Inn on the Ashbourne Road in my home town of Leek in Staffordshire that my whisky journey really began. I loved Caol Ila so much that I started to visit the Isle of Islay regularly. Cutting a very long story short I then became the Distillery Manager at Caol Ila Distillery, making the equivalent of 18 million bottles of my favourite whisky every year. Some journey for a whisky enthusiast!

Following the Caol Ila I then served a new edition from Ardbeg Distillery on Islay, the fantastic Ardbeg Wee Beastie, a full bodied and heavily peated single malt whisky. The tasting concluded with one of my own single cask single malt whiskies, a Fraoch Mòinteach single cask single malt whisky distilled in 2003 at Bunnahabhain Distillery and bottled at the cask strength of 53.5% abv.

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
