"Our ninth batch from the Allt-a-Bhainne distillery is a 23 Year Old, drawn from a single butt that was laid down in March 1995 It’s a release of just 430 bottles at 49.5% abv. The distillery was built to supply bulk whisky to the Chivas blended Scotch whiskies, mostly notably 100 Pipers brand. The distillery is a modern open plan unit and was one of the first designed to be be run by one man per shift."
About the Label
"Ahh, Allt-á-Bhainne! An excellent Speyside distillery that opened its doors in 1975, with lots of its output making its way into blends. However, their single malt is excellent indeed, as you’ll certainly see in our bottlings. When you think about it, Allt-á-Bhainne sounds a bit like House of Pain, and it literally means ‘River of Milk’. Once we clocked these facts, we obviously had to put them on our label, along with the bovine embodiment of The Whisky Squad!"500ml ml
Producer Tasting Note
Nose: Baked orchard fruits, a sprinkle of brown sugar and a hint of creamy custard..
Palate: Peppery spice fills the mouth, there’s oranges and cinnamon with an earthiness emerging, finishing with a fruity burst of apples and pears.

They are a dynamic and innovative firm, who by example invented the Whisky Advent Calendar concept. Established in 2012, TBWC is famous for its playful and colourful labels, which often feature prominent whisky industry figures, tell a story, and or elude to an inside joke. The labels are typically laced with hidden elements and "Easter Eggs."
TBWC bottles whiskies from around the world, though the bulk of their offerings are of Scottish origin. Most of their offerings are small-batch releases, Blended Malts, and Blends. Their "Head of Whisky" is Canadian Sam Simmons.
We are big fans of not only their whimsical labels but also the consistently high standard of liquid they bottle.
