So, what do we have behind window number 11 of The Whisky Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram? Why it’s the fourth batch of That Boutique-y Whisky Company‘s Arran single malt whisky!*
Each of the Arrans in this series features illustrator Emily Chappell and a friend stranded on a desert island after an ill-fated kayaking trip. As you may know, there are often subtle differences between the labels of Boutique-y batches, however, and if you look carefully on the right hand side of Batch 4… you’ll see that she’s actually put up her Christmas tree!
London Cocktail Week is in full swing! Now in its sixth year with parties, pop-ups, £5 Cocktail Tours and an entire cocktail village rather than the usual modest hub, it’s not one to miss.
and there are tons of fantastic things going on inclusind the Professor Cornelius Ampleforth (@ProfCAmpleforth) #BathtubGin stand. Pop by, take a photo in the bathtub with Dermot (the giant duck) and tag your photo on twitter or instagram with the hashtag #BathtubGin and you’ll receive a free print out of your picture and a dram of something delicious to try.

Yesterday saw the winners of the 2015 World Drinks Awards announced, as well as the winners of Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky and World Whiskies Awards – a very busy rotation of the Earth! It was also a fantastic day for many of the brands we work with / own / represent as you’ll see from the veritable cornucopia of trophies and awards below.
Drink by the Dram have also produced a selection of Winners Tasting Sets, which you can find here.
On Sunday the 25th of January, folk around the world will be taking part in a Burns Supper to celebrate the life and work of Robert Burns, one of Scotland’s most renowned and loved poets. Some might be very traditional, some less so, as Jake found out last year, but either way, these suppers are usually filled with three great pillars – poetry, haggis and Scotch whisky.
Basically, Burns Suppers are good fun and a great excuse (if you needed one) to enjoy some lovely whisky. If you’ve never been to one, keep reading to discover what you could be in for. If you’re hosting one, good on ya!
Followers of That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s batches of Arran single malt Scotch whisky will know that the label features Boutique-y illustrator Emily Chappell stranded on a desert island. Not the most festive of scenes, perhaps, except if you look carefully at Batch 4 you’ll see that she’s actually put up her Christmas tree!
An appropriate choice for day 18 of the Whisky Advent Calendar then! There’s even some festive spice and warming rye-style notes in this batch, although it’s very much still a charming Arran, and I’m rather partial to a charming Arran…
Now this here story I’m about to unfold is something you should all be listenin’ to. And listenin’ well. There’s a reward, you see. A reward of Drinks by the Dram Christmas Cracker sets, full of award-winning spirits and liqueurs, ready to be claimed by those with a keen eye for spotting the roughest, toughest cracker-pullers in the festive west…
Think you can identify the ace-highs from the crowbait? Throughout the first weeks of December we’ll be reliving the savage Cracker-Pullin’ Tournament of 1871. We’re giving away 10x sets of Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers per round, up to and including the grand Final, to folk who correctly guess the winner in each showdown!
Before we get started, yes, we know. We’re banging on about Christmas and it’s not even Halloween yet. Most of us at MoM Towers are only just putting the finishing touches to our costumes – this year I’m changing it up from my usual Beastie Boys ‘Sabotage’ cop and going as a horse with Jake. He’s kindly volunteered to be the back half (but he doesn’t know that yet).
However, the Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers were recently put up for pre-order and now we can’t but feel all Christmassy and whatnot. Just look at these handsome little rascals! Don’t expect to find any tiny rulers, giant plastic paper-clips or ridiculously easy puzzles here, oh no. These Christmas Crackers are filled with award-winning spirits and liqueurs!

So – it’s about that time again – new batches, and replenished batches of some absolute crackers from That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
First up – spoiler alert – we do have a new batch of both the Port Ellen, and Brora. I’ll understand if you want to stop reading for a bit and take care of a small (okay – large) transaction.
We’ve also got some brand spanking new lines though – 2 single malts and a blended malt (which after the editor’s choice award in the most recent edition of Whisky Magazine), should see some interest piqued…
