Taste Whisky at it’s best!
Come out and experience seven fine Scotch Whiskies from these magnificent distilleries!
J.W. Kelly & Co.
In 1862 J.W.Kelly migrated from New York state to Tennessee with a dream to produce damn fine whiskey. That passion was realized in 1866 in Chattanooga, TN, with the start of J.W.Kelly & Co. Although it set the standard of excellence, his brand was halted by prohibition in 1915. Now, more than 100 years later, his dream lives on as our own… “A World-Class Spirit with a Chattanooga Soul.”
Speyside Distillery, nestled within the magnificent Cairngorm Mountains, is widely acknowledged as being the prettiest of all Scotland’s distilleries. Originally a barley mill and croft dating back to the 1700’s, it finally closed in 1965. Over the next 25 years, Speyside was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery, which then started producing spirit on Christmas Day 1990. The distillery draws its water from the Spey River tributary with the River Tromie using the old mill lade, which originally ran the waterwheel that powered the old mill.
Ian Macleod Distillers has built up an enviable portfolio of premium quality spirits and is proud brand proprietor of Chieftan’s and Smokehead Scotch whiskies to name but a few.
