What we do differently

Profiling our Whisky by Mood

In searching for the ultimate single cask experience, we believe there are many factors to take into consideration.

Flavour and character are important, and our Taste Masters come together to explore each whisky they bottle and bring this to life through descriptive tasing notes, naming every cask to reflect its persona.


But we also take an innovative approach to flavour profiling. Each whisky we bottle is allocated to one of five moods. We encourage exploration of our whiskies through occasions and moments in time. It also helps answer the question – what are you in the mood for?

Each mood profile has been given a colourful icon, click on each to discover more.
