No longer limited to the boroughs of Edinburgh, the Bramble Bar‘s famed Affinity Cocktail is a pre-bottled concoction of quality Scotch whisky accented with Byrrh and Noilly Prat vermouths.

The Darkness! is a series from Scotland’s finest, be it the 21-year-old Ardberg finished in the casks of Oloroso sherry or the Macallan […]


The Reference Series is the next level of sophisticated drinking. This series of malted whiskey blends sets out for a bottle-paced experiential immersion into the long life of a whiskey, with each blend being bottled (and marked as such) at different points in the aging process.
