It is International Day of the Family folks! So, if you’re missing yours or if your patience is being tested via being stuck in the same room with them for so long. Here’s Connas providing some distraction with this week’s Whisky News…

  • Tam’dhu a new single cask!

Tamdhu fans can now get their hands on another new limited-edition expression. Since last week’s Dalbeallie Dram 003 hit, the distilleries own Iain Whitecross has selected his “Perfect Dram” from a list of 150 casks, and it is available to pre order here…

  • On -Trade-Line!

Peace
