The Worlds largest private collection of Single Malt Whiskies going back to around 1939. Current versions include the Connoisseurs Choice range which includes some very old Single Malts.
 
 Glengoyne
The Beautiful Glengoyne Distillery makes a point of not using peat in their whisky. The range is currently undergoing a makeover which will shortly include a 10, 12, 12 cask, 15, 18 and 21yo. The 17yo has been replaced by the 18yo.

 Macleods Range
This is a Regional range of 8yo Sngle Malt Whiskies, all of which are used in the classic Isle of Skye 8yo Blend Scotch. The range must remain un named, but its not really too difficult to figure which ones they are. Regardless, the quality of the range is excellent and the value outstanding. Regions covered include Islay, Island, Highland, Lowland and Speyside.

 
 Smokehead
A single malt from another unnamed Islay distillery. Stylistically speaking, its lush and oilly with a rich vein of peaty malt and smokey beach bonfires in there. Another award winner.

 
Blended Scotch Whisky
 Isle of Skye
The 8yo is our house blend. As such it over delivers on evert aspect of the blend - the malt content is around 40% and the age is over 8yo.
The Whisky Bible rates it 94/100 which is a stunning achievement.
We also have a 12yo. Its simply a rich and lush blend that is expected to somehow surpass the 8yo. Its a completely different blend of course, bigger and fatter allround.

 Islay Mist
Another multiple award winner. We carry the Deluxe, 12yo and 17yowhich all won their respective categories at the WWA recently. The deluxe is a delicious Laphroaig based blend, with some soft sweet highland malt underpinning the whole. It was initially created to celebrate the local Lairds 21st birthday, but the blend was lost sometime during the war years. Its back now, with a vengence...

 Six Isles
This award winner (the Queens Export Award for best new product) is a blend of single malts from the six whisky producing Islands - Islay, Skye, Orkney, Jura, Mull and Arran. Classic Island style - lush and fat flavours with a waft of peat floating about 1/3rd the way down. Delicious.

 
Irish Whiskey
 Magilligans
Two Malts from the Cooley stable in Ireland. One a peated version  and the other with no peat. The Cooley malts are indeed worthy additions.

 
Wine
 Cousino Macul
Founded in 1856, Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. Quality is the driver for this company and the wines simply speak for themselves

 J. Bally
The Rums from the French territory of Martinique are called Agricole – meaning they are produced from fresh cane juice. With French oak involved as well, these rums become very brandy like.
 
 El Dorado 15yo
This Demerara Rum has won so many awards its difficult to know how to list them. Rich and smooth, the flavours of muscavado sugar, prunes and dates is quite special. Its really no longer a Rum at this age  – it’s a Liqueur.
