  • The Three B's Make A Triumphant Return

    We have been stocking Knob Creek bourbon for a considerable time now, a small batch premium bourbon that is highly popular. What some of you will not realise is that Knob Creek is part of a rather special set of bourbons which are, rather unimaginatively I must admit, entitled 'The Small Batch Bourbon Collection'.

  • Scotland's First Ever Rum - Dark Matter

    Saying no to family is always hard, even if they are trying to convince you it's a god idea to set up a dedicated rum distillery in Scotland! That's the obstacle former petroleum economist (I'm not sure what that entails exactly!) Jim Ewen had to overcome this very issue when he touted the idea of creating a Scottish rum to his brother John Ewen. Jim noticed the recent surge in craft gin distilleries opening and saw a gap in the market for craft distilled Scottish rum. Suffice to say that Jim...
