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!

BACKGROUND TO TOBERMORY

The s-shaped stills at Tobermory are key. They create reflux and underlying lightness. Distillery manager Ian MacMillian, who also manages the Deanston Distillery, has kept a watchful eye on this whisky. The underlying lighter spirit has spent 23 years in Sherry. This whisky is exceptionally dynamic, keeping the light mossy character from the new make and picking up the rich sweetness of the raisins from the sherry cask. This a unique and special combination.

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.

Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.

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.
