Old And Rare Whisky

Over the years, we've amassed a wonderful collection of old and rare spirits. We've got some legendary bottles of single malt whisky, limited runs of small batch bourbon, vintage Irish whiskey and exclusive ranges that will have collectors everywhere chomping at the bit. A lot of what you will find here is whisky from closed distilleries, spirit that will never be made again and some of the most expensive whisky in the world. We've also got very limited run independent bottlings from now defunct whisky bottlers and special blends and blended malts.
