Islay Barrel Top 23rd May 2024 19:30-21:30



For those of us who cannot make it up to the Hebrides for the Islay festival this May, we are hosting a barrel-top tasting in our London Bridge & Great Portland Street stores bringing together some of our favourite drams from the island.

Known as the Queen of the Hebrides, Islay is home to whiskies like few others. They can be some of the most elemental of drams bringing together sea spray and herbal peat for a style that is instantly recognisable. However, the island is not exclusively home to peat monsters, other distilleries work to produce surprisingly delicate, maritime-tinged drams as well as robustly fruit-driven malts.

  • Caol Ila
  • Lagavulin
  • Bunnahabain
