Octomore 13 Series

For all of the whisky lovers, we’ve got a tempting trio to wet your palate. Re-defining whisky since its debut in 2008, Octomore is matured for a languorous five years, subsequently bottled up close to cask strength. “Quality not quantity” is at the core of the Octomore ethos, taking time to explore barley provenance, terroir, varying peat levels and cask management in the pursuit of flavour.

Westland Colere 2nd Edition American Single Malt Whiskey

‘Colere’ stems from the Latin verb, meaning ‘to cultivate’ – and Westland’s Colere 2nd Edition American Single Malt Whiskey purely embodies that.

Jägermeister Manifest

Jägermeister Manifest
Jägermeister Manifest

A radical interpretation of Jägermeister, Manifest draws on the iconic brand’s original elixir, suffused with more than 56 herbs, blossoms, roots and fruits, and five extra intense macerates matured in oak barrels for up to 12 months. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s then blended with a wheat distillate, itself matured for 15 months in small oak casks. An alchemic coming together, the time-heavy creation boasts a final product as intricate and blissful as one would expect from the vast amount of hours behind it.
