ABOUT OUR MINI WHISKIES
We believe great whisky should be opened, shared and enjoyed. We wanted to make our older age statements as accessible as possible. So, we've introduced minis, or "Mighty Minis" as we like to call them.
Our Minis are 100ml miniature bottles that allow you to try the whisky; because they're smaller than a full 700ml bottle the price point is more accessible, but because they're 100ml there's still enough whisky for you to enjoy several drams, or indeed share a dram with a few friends.
So whether you get one for a special treat, a few for your own tasting with friends, or use them as an opportunity to try a whisky before you commit to a full size bottle, we hope you enjoy!
GLENTAUCHERS BACKGROUNDThis ex-bourbon Glentauchers single malt whisky, and her sister an ex-sherry Glentauchers, are like Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap; born on the same day, but grew up in different surroundings. Although the Glentauchers sisters were made 2 years before that movie came out; which that makes us feel old! These two whiskies show what long-term maturation does in Sherry and Bourbon casks. And, trust us, in this case it’s done different and wonderful things to these delightful scotch twins. Check out the sister cask here.
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'. These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post. The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
