“Always carry a flagon of whisky in case of snakebite, and furthermore, always carry a small snake.”

— W.C. Fields

The Scotch began making their whisky more than 500 years ago, and yet a dram of Scotch Whisky is as stylish as it is timeless, as sexy as it is smart.

The world of Single Malt Scotch Whisky — whisky made exclusively of malted grain and bottled at a single distillery — is divided into six regions: the Highlands, Speyside, the Islands, Islay, Campbeltown and the Lowlands. The key to knowing about Single Malt Scotch Whisky is knowing about these regions and the kind of whisky they produce. We’d like to invite you to journey with us through all six of these regions and the best of their styles of Scotch Whisky. We’d like to invite you to a series of Scotch Whisky tastings, from the Highlands south to the Lowlands, from Islay north to the Islands, and from Campbeltown west to Speyside.

Our journey begins in the Highlands, the largest of the Scotch Whisky regions, and the region which yields the greatest variety of whisky flavors and styles. Wild seas and rolling moors characterize the region, a diversity of nature which makes for rich, powerful and peaty whiskies, as well as whiskies which are floral, silky and elegant. While whisky from the Northern Highlands are known for their heathery, spicy character, those from the Southern Highlands are recognized for their relatively light and fruity flavors. North and south, east and west, the whiskies of the Highlands are as varied as they are beautiful. For us, they represent the ideal gateway through which to enter the world of Scotch Whisky.

If you love Scotch, or if you’re curious about Whisky, our Scotch Whisky series is a wonderful opportunity to taste and explore, to drink and discover a world as old as it is new, as meaningful to the Scots 500 years ago as it is for us today.
