Celebrating National Scotch Day

Whether you’re an investor, a drinker or possibly even both! There are a number of ways you can get involved today to celebrate this incredible drink.

If you’re not already a member, have a search for a local Whisky club. These special groups welcome like-minded Whisky fans to meet monthly and partake in tastings, usually of exclusive and rare drams. Not only are they a great way to meet new friends, but they also allow people to widen their Whisky palates without having to spend a small fortune on bottles.

Check with your local Whisky bars about how they plan on celebrating. With most cities containing at least a couple of dedicated Whisky bars, they are another great way of accessing more exclusive bottles.

If staying in is more your style, you can always raise a dram from the comfort of your own home. Share a glass with friends and raise a toast to this incredible spirit, providing so much to so many.

“Eight bolls of malt to Friar John Cor wherewith to make aqua vitae.”

The year was 1494 when Scotch was first documented, with Friar John’s malted barley mentioned in the tax records of the time.

Although a lot has changed since the 15th century, some things have remained the same, timeless if you will. Our love for that amber drop, the water of life.

Liquid Gold

Since The Glenlivet became the first licenced distillery in 1824, the industry has blossomed into the gold standard spirit by which others are measured. Over the past 200 years, Scotch developed from an illegal tipple into a global commodity, now used as an investment vehicle to hedge against inflation.

With Scotch Casks currently selling at record prices and bottles following suit, there seems to be no end to the heights Scotch is now achieving. The once humble drink, made by farmers for the locals, is now a global business worth 4.91bn to the Scottish economy annually.  

Looking forward, we welcome four new distilleries in 2022, including the return of the infamous Rose Bank distillery in Falkirk. These new distilleries will help contribute to the continued growth of the market, currently rising at 19% and expected to soar once the UK/India trade deal concludes. The deal between the two Scotch-loving countries will end the 150% import tax currently faced within Whisky’s largest overseas market. 

Here’s to Scotch

So as we celebrate National Scotch Day, we raise a dram to all those who have made this incredible drink what it is today. 

From the rebels to the royals, from the coopers to the blenders, and everyone in between. 

The hard work, dedication and tenacity to keep distilling at the highest quality possible over all these years is greatly appreciated. It’s something we savour with every last drop. 

Slàinte Mhath!
