Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a truly unique spirit. Its infinite complexity of flavours and aromas deserve to be appreciated.

 

Professional tasters and whisky experts recommend the addition of pure, fresh spring water. Adding water will ‘open up’ your whisky, soften the alcohol prickle and allow it to breathe. New and subtle tastes and aromas will be revealed.

 

Choosing the right water is imperative.
