Redbreast 12-year-old Birdfeeder
The former World Whiskey of the year, Redbreast 12-Year-Old now comes complete with a limited edition copper-cased branded bird feeder a collaboration with Birdlife International.
The intricately designed shell sits around a bottle. Once removed from the bottle, the casing can be filled with bird feed and hung in the garden to keep our feathery friends fed as the weather gets colder, protecting common species from becoming endangered. The bird feeder enables whiskey fans to sit back and enjoy a warming drink in the comfort of their own home while watching nature fly by.
The perfect gift for a whiskey lover!
Developed to elevate your favourite whisky (or whiskey)—whether Scotch, Bourbon, Rye, Canadian, Japanese, you name it—the Norlan Whisky Glass has been designed to capture whisky’s unique aromatics and flavours and deliver them to the senses like never before.
The Rauk Heavy Tumbler is a modern interpretation of the classic old-fashioned glass. The glass has been developed for whisky drinkers who prefer their spirit chilled on the rocks.
And for those who revel in the crafted cocktail, the tumbler features a core innovation. Inside the glass lies an array of extruded chevrons radiating from the center, which serve to provide friction for gripping ingredients used in muddled drinks. We think this is pretty special!
Whiskey Master Class
Go beyond the glass and discover the secrets behind your favourite style of whiskey. Over the past three decades, Lew Bryson has been one of the most influential voices in whiskey – a longtime editor of Whisky Advocate and author of the definitive guide Tasting Whiskey. In this book, Lew shares everything he’s learned on his journey through the worlds of bourbon, Scotch, rye, Japanese whiskey, and more (yes, there are tasty Canadian and Irish whiskeys as well!). In this book, you’ll find it all: An overview of the different types of whiskeys, including the rules and identities of each. He also includes information on craft whiskeys, which tend to be more creative and freewheeling than the styles made by traditional producers. Exploration of the key whiskey ingredients, with a close look at the flavour contributions of malt, peat, corn, rye, wheat-even water matters.Distillation for non-distillers and the beauty of barrels: Whiskey is both an art and a science, and what’s in the glass is affected by things like pot stills vs. column stills, barrel char, and of course, time. Numerous interviews with master distillers, still makers, and other artisans at the top of their field.Tasting notes throughout so you can identify the whiskeys you might want to try next. Every chapter contains a variety of unique, often behind-the-scenes photography. And with whiskey as the subject, this is a class where you’ll want to do the homework!
