The Whisky Tailor

Knowing where to begin with whisky can be difficult. There are around 100 hundred working distilleries in Scotland, and many more around the World, each one releasing several different expressions not to mention independent bottlers. The choice is mind blowing but Simply Whisky is here to help.

We are often asked questions like:

We then hear tales of illness and hangovers (most likely because of a dreadful blend from somebody’s liquor cabinet, or an ill thought of shot of Jack Daniels, Johnnie Walker or Jim Beam in a rough and tumble bar) and so we are used to being told ‘I don’t like whisky, how do I know I will like it now?’

This Time It Can Be Different

Times change, taste buds mature, we are all individuals and so are our tastes, but Simply Whisky can help you find yours. Be warned, you are about to ignite your passion for single malt whisky!
