You are able to view all the releases in advance to make it easier to choose those special Christmas gifts for family and friends… or for yourself. Why not? Everyone deserves a little extravagance from time […]
The past three months in Glasgow have given me a great insight into living in the city and all the fun things you can do there. The summer has been beautiful with temperatures going as high as 28°C (taps-aff weather, as they call it here), but obviously there have been various degrees of restriction due […]
Ever wanted to make your own gin? Crossbill Distillery in Glasgow is running a gin school where you can learn more about gin in general while you distil your own gin recipe. The distillery is the first to make gin using only Scottish botanicals. Their gins are made using only two botanicals, juniper and rosehip, […]
Cleopatra’s bath time, Cerealism, Delicate masculinity, Drink me you swine!, Thatcher’s tea break, Umami heaven, Sassy lassie in a leather skirt… Like the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s many bottles, we are all unique and different, but united by our interest in whisky.

Whatever your tipple there’s an event for you.

Some festivals can be spirits-specific, others have a little bit (or a lot!) of everything. Basically, you are spoiled for choice!
Gin & Cheese, Gin & Chocolate (my least favourite pairing…), Gin & Disco, Gin on a boat… There have been many events where Gin is served in various forms and paired with anything you can possibly think of. But I think we have found you a winner, the best combo possible! The Gin Spa, where Gin meets spa treatments, the pampering of your dreams!
Hands up if you can see yourself sipping a Gin cocktail whilst getting your nails done!

For some, it’s all about the décor (or, as Glaswegians say, ‘a bar for poseurs’), whilst for others, it’s all about the product, whether they offer hundreds of gins, whiskies, or other […]
