We are delighted to feature 3 of the fantastic Scotch whiskys from That Boutique-y Whisky Company as our Special Whisky Tasting Flight this month.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company:
That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles limited edition single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries (including some closed distilleries) as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. Each numbered bottle is adorned with a fantastic hand-illustrated label. These comic book-style labels feature tales from the history of certain distilleries, famous individuals from the drinks industry or even scenes as clearly bonkers (but equally brilliant) as a velociraptor fighting a shark! There are usually plenty of other little details for you to find too…
Since April this year these whiskys are being bottled with age statements and That Boutique-y Whisky Company have been very clear about the reasons behind this move, still believing that flavour and overall quality are more important than age. It’s partly been driven by the interest of whisky fans, but is also part of their wholehearted support for the campaign for Scotch whisky transparency that John Glaser of Compass Box launched earlier that year. They’ve committed not only to introducing age statements (which tell you the age of the youngest component), but to list the breakdown of the various whiskies that make up each bottling as soon as the campaign is successful and EU legislation allows it.
How it Works:
We will serve you a small measure of each of the three That Boutique-y Company Whiskys. The measure will be 20 ml of each whisky, which is smaller than a normal measure but enough to experience the whisky. The price of the flight is €20.
Just ask one of our Bartenders for a special booklet we have put together with some background information on the whiskys along with tasting notes for each.
