The Nightcap: 11 May

Folks, it’s Friday! And it’s been another busy one in the world of drinks. Thank goodness then for The Nightcap, a handy round-up of boozy goings on in one easily sippable digestif!

This week we have news of a rather exciting Game of Thrones/whisky tie-up, awards galore from Spirit of Speyside, a bold new bottle design and a Tabasco sauce update. Oh yes!

So when Allan Logan came to London to host a tasting of the distillery’s recently-released Octomore Eights range – containing, among other drams, the world’s most heavily peated whisky – we jumped at the chance to speak with him.
