NEW SCOTCH: We have a fantastic, rare new whisky in stock. Ever heard of Garnheath Distillery? Probably not. Only producing whisky for 21 years between 1865 to 1986 before being demolished in 1988, whisky from this Lost Scottish Distillery is very hard to come by. Our friends at Independent bottling company Morrison & MacKay have released a very limited 41 year single grain bottling and we LOVE it. We had a wee taste and you can read our blog here: https://www.thewhiskybarrel.co.uk/blog/post/tasting-garnheath This one is rather special!

From the Vaults: Whisky and the Scots

West Register House, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh plays host to an exhibition of whisky documents and treasures on display until 26th June 2009.

Albeit a modest exhibition, entrance is free and is well worth dropping in if your in Edinburgh's west end. There are displays charting the story of 'Whisky Galore' along with a fascinating official ledger signed by Rab' Burns in 1796.

A range of collectable Dewar’s blends and exhibits from Diageo's extensive history are also on display.

The main draw is a rare opportunity to see the 'Exchequer Roll of 1494' a parchment which documents the earliest known reference to whisky in Scotland.

The National Archives of Scotland (NAS) West Register House, Edinburgh.

Wednesday 7 May until Friday 26 June, Monday to Friday, 9.00 – 4.30.
