Bourbon has been a part of American culture since the late 18th century, when poor farmers in Maryland and Pennsylvania began distilling their excess grain crops. These distillers gradually migrated to Kentucky, which is now the spiritual home of Bourbon. Read More »
A bourbon from Californian distillers St. George, although not distilled by them. They've trawled the warehouses of Kentucky's finest distilleries and blended together a selection of about 80 'plundered' casks to create this intense and complex bourbon.
A festive special edition made using the whisky that was matured in the casks used to build this year’s Christmas Barrel Tree at the Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg. Master distiller Jeff Arnett selected the casks for the rich toasted oak and spicy character of their contents, which carries through into the final excellent bottling.
Please note this is limited to one bottle per customer.
A very interesting whisky, the first to be legally distilled in Texas, made from blue corn (not sure what that is, but it sounds impressive) and, remarkably, being the recipient of a Double Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Definitely one to watch.
Please note this is limited to 1 bottle per customer.
Corsair Rasputin Malt comes from the artisan distillers based in Kentucky and Tennessee. This hopped whiskey is made by distilling Imperial stout and passing it through hops to add spicy and floral notes to the chocolate flavour of the stout. A complex hopped whiskey.

The first new Makers Mark recipe for at least 50 years, Maker's 46 is named for the number of different wood 'recipes' they tried before getting it right. Bottled at 47% it is matured in part in barrels containing a 'ladder' of toasted new French oak barrel staves to give more spice, sweetness and vanilla. Limited to 1 bottle per customer.
A ready made cocktail, sort of, from Maker's Mark, infusing mint flavours into their regular whiskey along with adding a touch of sugar to produce a spirit that only needs mixing with a silver cup of crushed ice to produce a refreshing julep.
A unique whisky from rising star of the US distilling movement, Balcones. It's a corn whisky made in Waco, Texas using atole, a roasted blue corn meal packed full of nuttiness that comes through into the whisky.
A single barrel bourbon from Virginia's A Smith Bowman distillery - John J Bowman, named for an early pioneer and Kentucky settler. They redistill spirit from Buffalo Trace's distillery in their large pot still before ageing and bottling, for a clean and richly flavoured whiskey.
A smokey whisky with a difference. Firstly it's made in Texas by Balcones and secondly the smoke comes from a secret process involving Texas Scrub Oak. This is not smoky whisky like you've had before - a mix of campfires, fruit and youthful corn.
