For the few of you that don't know, GreatDrams has entered into the world of independent whisky bottling. As such we are releasing casks seasonally, so here is the GreatDrams Single Cask Scotch Whisky releases Spring 2019.
Who is GreatDrams?
Drinks Producer of the Year 2019
We are award-winning whisky specialists based in Cheshire specialising in Limited Edition Single Cask Scotch Whisky.
We launched the GreatDrams business in 2017 with the aim to make great whisky more approachable and available to whisky drinkers. In April 2019 we were crowned Cheshire Drinks Producer of the Year at the Taste Cheshire awards.
Firstly, to do this we work with whisky maturation warehouses and distilleries to unearth rare casks of whisky that would otherwise not be released to the open market; especially not as single casks.
Secondly, when we fall in love with a flavour profile from a given cask of whisky, we buy the whole cask. Then we continue that maturation at different warehouses in Scotland. Only when we are happy the spirit has reached its ultimate taste profile, do we bottle this rare liquid and make it available to you.
All are bottled from single casks so are limited edition releases; once they’re gone, they truly are gone.
Finally, we love what we do and are constantly searching for mature whisky that not only has a story but tastes sensational.
