Five different and delicious ways to celebrate Rabbie Burns' Birthday this January. From a traditional dram of Scotch Whisky to a non-alcoholic smoky digestif, you can be sure to celebrate in style.
The Gladstone Axe American Oak and The Gladstone Axe The Black Axe Malt Whiskies are both named after four-times Prime Minister, William Gladstone. The whisky is a modern twist on classic Scotch and are in iconic bottles which tell the story of William Gladstone in a contemporary way. The Gladstone Axe American Oak is aged and finished in American Oak Bourbon barrels and blended from single malt whiskies from 14 different Highland and Islay distilleries. The Black Axe has a higher proportion of Islay malts, to add just a touch of smoky character.
RRP: £32 for 70cl | ABV: 43%. The Black Axe available from Amazon and American Oak available from Master of Malt
A smooth, black Whiskey liqueur based on a combination of Irish spirits and aged pot still whiskey, blended with the natural flavour of vanilla and infused caramel. The resulting spirit is black and smooth with a rich, whippy flavour dominated by spicy Irish Whiskey. It is delicious served on its own or mixed in a cocktail.
