The Nightcap: 6 July

Happy Friday, team! Summer is ON (at least here in the UK) and there’s a certain football match on the agenda tomorrow… But before that comes around, it’s time to get an update from the world of booze. Bring on The Nightcap!

This week brought with it a new month as well as a whole new cohort of booze goings on – and of course a new Dram Club box for our subscribers, too! We took a sneak peek inside those packs of tastiness on Sunday.

On Monday we looked back to Fèis Ìle 2018 when Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills shared his plans for the distillery expansion project, and got part three of Annie’s Bourbon Series – this time it was Rob Samuels from Maker’s Mark in the spotlight.

The Glencairn glass has become synonymous with spirits (whisky in particular), and on Tuesday we met the family behind the business. Sales are soaring – it seems we can’t get enough fancy glassware to hold our boozes!

Charity Auction for Supersplendiferous One-of-a-Kind That Boutique-y Whisky Company Speyburn Bottle!

In celebration of their 100th line, That Boutique-y Whisky Company have given us a one-of-a-kind “pimped” litre bottle of their Speyburn 7 Year Old to auction for charity with everything raised donated to Malaria No More UK!
 

UPDATE: The auction has now ended with bids reaching £600.01! Congratulations to the winner and to That Boutique-y Whisky Company for raising hundreds of pounds for such a great cause!

Back in September 2012, That Boutique-y Whisky Company was unleashed upon this plane of existence (some say that the discovery of a clutch of turtles crawling through radioactive ooze in a New York City alley was the true beginning of That Boutique-y Whisky Company, but we can neither confirm nor deny this). Fast-forward almost five years to July 2017 and the multi-award-winning independent whisky bottler has released their 100th line (or 100th different first batch, if you will) – a Speyburn 7 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky! To mark the occasion, That Boutique-y Whisky Company has given us a one-of-a-kind 1 litre bottle of said Speyburn single malt to auction, with everything raised (net of any applicable VAT) donated to Malaria No More UK!
