Kavalan have claimed the World Whisky Producer of the Year Trophy from the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) for the second year running.

  • Whyte and Mackay Oak Expansion!

Whyte & Mackay is implementing its Scottish Oak Programme across its portfolio of Scotch whiskies, part of a wider campaign for the use of native wood in spirits maturation.

This will be marked with a new sculpture created by acclaimed land artist Rob Mulholland. Very Cool…
