Firstly, our Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside was named Best Single Malt Scotch Over 21 Years Old! An absolutely colossal and humbling win, beating hundreds of fantastic whiskies to the prize. Our 50 Year Old Speyside also picked up a Gold medal.

    The tasting trophies are shaped like big 'ol tasting glasses. You could drink award-winning whisky out of them if you were so inclined (and we were).

    'The Exceptional' Whiskies Now Available!

    by Jake Mountain     27. May 2016 14:30

    The Exceptional whisky

    The Exceptional Malt, Grain and Blend from Don Sutcliffe and former Managing Director of The Macallan Willie Phillips launch in the UK.

    Available on Master of Malt today are three new Scotch whiskies from American independent bottler Sutcliffe & Son, brought to the UK by Number One Drinks. Called 'The Exceptional', the chaps behind them are none other than Willie Phillips, who was Managing Director of The Macallan between 1978 and 1996 (crucial years for the development of this famous single malt, of course) and Craft Distillers Managing Director Don Sutcliffe who worked with him to grow The Macallan in the US back in the late 1980s. Friends for 25 years, The Exceptional is something of a passion project for them both, working also with Master Blender Bill Arthur.
