  • Choose the Whisky of the Year!

You have until 24th August to vote for The Whisky Exchange Whisky of the Year! You’ve been warned…


  • Fresh Issues…

Fresh Bourbon Distilling Co’s plans for a new distillery have been delayed due to Coviod 19. I hope things turn around for them soon!


  • Western Ilse to the Far East!

Bowmore have revealed details of an incredibly special release for China! They’ve been a busy lot lately!

  • Inchfad Helps!

Our Buddies from The Single Cask have launched a four-year-old whisky and will donate all profits to healthcare charities. This does not surprise me in the least, great bunch of folks…

  • Johnnie x 3!

Diageo have announced the launch of three new limited-edition Johnnie Walker Red Label, Black Label and Gold Label bottles, to help celebrate the brands 200th anniversary. Impressive stint!


  • Mizunara Envy!

Angel’s Envy have kicked off their new Founder’s Collection of limited edition whiskeys with the launch of a Bourbon finished in Japanese mizunara oak casks to mark its 10th anniversary. Wowzer!
