This is a well-preserved 1970s bottling of William Lawson's Blended Scotch Whisky, produced over 30 years ago. The William Lawson's blend has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence - perhaps as it has come to light that William Lawson was supposedly raised by wolves. That might just be a fabrication though. Or it might be the truth. Who knows!

Ballantine's Purity / Signature Scotch
A rare and highly desirable limited edition release from Ballantine's. A blended malt whisky that was originally only available in Travel Retail, it's presented in a rather elegant teardrop shaped decanter. Its unique packaging reflects Scotland's purest ingredients. Its rare bottling provides whisky lovers with the ultimate gift for themselves or those they hold in esteem. The heritage of Ballantine's Scotch whisky can be traced back to the year 1827, when George Ballantine began supplying a selected range of Scotch whiskies to a distinguished clientele from a grocery store in Edinburgh. By 1869 George had expanded his business into Glasgow with his two sons. Trading now as 'George Ballantine & Son', his business started to export blended whisky to a worldwide market and fast became synonymous with high quality, smooth blended whiskies. In 1895 Queen Victoria awarded George Ballantine & Son a Royal Warrant - the ultimate endorsement of the company's prestigious reputation. In 1910 Ballantine's Finest was developed and became the company's primary export. The 1930’s brought the development of Ballantine's 30 Year Old and the brand enjoyed substantial export growth in the key international markets of the US, Europe and Asia. In 1938 the company received its Grant of Heraldic Arms, recognising George Ballantine & Son as an ‘incorporation noble on the Noblesse of Scotland'. This crest appears on every bottle of Ballantine's Scotch whisky to this day, featuring the Scottish flag and the four essential elements of whisky making - barley, water, a pot still and an oak cask. True to George Ballantine’s vision of creating whisky of the highest quality, Ballantine’s unique, elegant style is balanced and smooth, containing a complex blend of single malts and grain whiskies from the four renowned whisky regions of Scotland – Speyside, Highlands, Islay and the Lowlands.
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked

Starting with Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which is matured in handcrafted new white oak barrels; the bourbon is then uniquely matured for a second time in another new barrel. The second barrel is deeply toasted before a light charring, creating the unique flavors of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked - a smooth, full-bodied bourbon with a long, rich finish.
Jameson Black Barrel Whiskey
Charring is an age-old method for invigorating barrels to intensify the taste. Jameson Black Barrel is our tribute to our coopers, who painstakingly give their bourbon barrels an additional charring to reveal their untold richness and complexity. Because every barrel contains secrets; the trick is coaxing them out.

Teaher's Origin Blended Scotch Whisky
One of the first in what Teacher’s owners Jim Beam say will be a line of new releases for the blend. The name “Origin” refers to the blended whisky’s aging process in smaller quarter casks, which would have been used by distilleries in the 19th century. This aging technique also allows for a greater ratio of wood to spirit, heightening “oak contact”, which Teacher’s claims creates a whisky that is 30% more mature. This blended dram contains 65% malt in the mixture, a high proportion, and uses over 30 different single malts with a large quantity coming from the unusually peated highland malt, Ardmore. On the nose the drinker is greeted with malty biscuits, toffee, sweet bright oak, peat smoke and dark honey. The palate is faithful to the nose, but adds a chewy toffee-led mouthfeel and a little bright cereal sweetness. The finish is dense and long with a lingering woodspice note. A lovely, smoky and complex whisky which offers outstanding value for money, particularly in this larger 1 litre bottle.
