FIRE WALK WITH ME
Johnny Walker Green Label is back after a five year absence. So what's different now?
A trip to three regions for some great no-age statement whiskies that's worth a punt.
THE MACALLAN ESTATE
You might be able to crash a fashion party, or blag your way into a concert. You will, however, never be able to spend a night in The Macallan Easter Elchies House without being hosted or asked. So how did we score an invite?
FROM WOOD TO WHISKY
Cooperage – the art of barrel making – is a thousand-year-old skill that hasn't really changed. Fact: Without wood, there would be no whisky. Here's a look at this valuable and vital part of creating our favourite spirit.
ADVENTURES WITH ABERLOUR
You rarely get a tasting experience like this: a trip through the legend/story of Aberlour with a Keeper of the Quaich. My own 'once upon a time' tale ended with their version of 'happily ever after'.
SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND
Like the Mortlach whisky that she extols, Georgie Bell, the brand’s luxury malt ambassador, is also a strong character, chock-full of awesome whisky bits, and a stylish modern looker. We talked whisky, road trips and how to drink the dram.
Sam Simmons is the global ambassador for The Balvenie. We poached a bit of his time – he was in Singapore for one portion of the Connoisseurs of Craft – to talk about detective novels, his first whisky love and why you should start with blends.
