Whisky Advent 2017 Day #20: Kilchoman Sanaig

With only four days left of #WhiskyAdvent, Drinks by the Dram has delivered another absolutely smashing dram. Behind window #20 of its Whisky Advent Calendar is…

We’ve approached that time, people. You know what I mean.

The time when your presents should be wrapped under a glowing tree. The time when your stockings should be hung and your cards all sent out. And the time when your Christmas pudding should be sitting proud in an ‘appropriate’ amount of brandy. It’s day #20 people, and to those for whom this is all true…

… you can rest easy and help yourself to a celebratory dram!* What tempting treat offers such rewarding libation on the other side of window #20? It’s Kilchoman Sanaig!

Summer spirits trends? Agave and Asian spirits top the charts

We take a look at 2017’s hottest summer spirits trends – based on what you’re drinking right now.

With the sun presumably shining, what better way to toast the long summer days than with a top tipple? Whether it’s holiday serves or sippers, a little liquid indulgence goes a long way to add to that sunny feel-good factor. And you, our wonderful customers, clearly agree. We shipped 60% more spirits bottles this June and July than during the same two months in 2016 – which means more of you than ever enjoyed a summer drink from Master of Malt.

But it’s not all kicking back with a cocktail. We’ve spotted that you’re a savvy bunch indeed, with your seasonal sipping choices well ahead of the curve when it comes to summer spirits trends. And this is especially true when it comes to agave-based drinks and Asian spirits.

Adiós, Tequila. ¡Hola, Mezcal!

It seems most countries have a national drink – these are the kind of bottles that are bought on holiday and go dusty in the cupboard only to be pulled out for drinking games at parties years later. One of the most iconic national drinks of all time is of course Tequila.

Tequila, as we all know, has a bad reputation as being that party drink, that led to that night, and many have avoided exploring this infamous spirit unless forced to by a friend who is swaying on the spot with a party hat on his head screaming, “SHOT!”. However, if this is the case, Tequila’s rustic cousin Mezcal should pique your interest. “What is a Mezcal?” I hear you ask. Well take a seat and I will tell you a story.
