The independent bottlers of Scotland are some of the oldest traders of Scotch in the world, originating at a time when distilleries seldom sold their wares directly to the public. As it remains today, the independent bottler's role is to showcase the whisky in it's most revealing, natural and singular state - from small batches of 2-3 casks through to the product of just a single cask of whisky.

We are very proud to stock an extensive range of whiskies from Scotland's leading independent bottlers. Among this selection are some of the finest whiskies we stock, covering almost all styles of single malt - from the youngest, peatiest Islay through to the oldest and most revered of Speysides, and everything in between.

Due to the nature of small batch and single cask whisky, there are often precious few bottles to go around, so please be aware that this selection changes frequently between shipments, and some are so rare that availability is often very limited.

If you would like assistance selecting from this range, or would like any advice in general, we are always delighted to hear from you. You can reach us by phone on 0800 WHISKY (944 759) or by email.
