As the mist rises from the forest floor, shafts of light break the clouds revealing dark mountains and ancient hills. Mythical beasts scurry amongst the fescue as the beithir rise in the loch for their first taste of the peaty glen air. Hand selected single cask expressions, but only for the brave. Consumed by smoke and glory.
The aroma of rain after a storm, fiery beacons ignite in your mouth as you as you tuck into your glazed bbq smoke salmon at the end of an outdoor expedition. As the sun sets, the air smoulders, the embers die and you snuggle into your sleeping bag. No Experience Necessary.

Bourbon hogsheads are made from American white oak, these are toasted and charred before being filled. Hogsheads hold around 225-250 litres and are the second-most common type of cask used in maturing Scotch whisky. These casks are often built from staves originally taken from bourbon barrels and the larger size makes them better suited for a slightly longer period of maturation.
