Whisky Galore...and more

Last week we were mostly discussing whisky and it wasn't all idle gossip judging by the results on the shelves. We have managed - courtesy of the extra display space following the recent refurb - to increase our collection of fine malt whisky to well over 250 bottles.
Along with the old favourites Macallan, Glenfarclas and Benromach you will find a rather splendid 1978 Millburn, an 18 year old Glendronach 'Allardice' and a 20 year old Port Dundas to name but a few.
Malt of the moment
And don't worry if you can't tell your Lowland from your Speyside, come and learn from the master on Thursday 16th February when Richard Urquhart from Gordon & Macphail, recently crowned 'whisky wholesaler of the year' holds his ever popular whisky masterclass.
Introducing the longest hand pull in the world....probably
And we haven't neglected our winter beer festival, Febfest either. Finding enough space in the cellar and locating the hand pull badge are a few of the challenges we face every beer festival. However, our ever innovative bar staff have come up with an ingenious alternative to scrabbling about in boxes looking for badges.

New ales to sample this week are WilderNess from Loch Ness Brewery , APA from Houston Brewery and back by popular demand Traditional Scrumpy from Westons 

Our winter beer festival continues until the 3rd of March with a full line up of entertainment including the Winter Experience Lecture every Tuesday so there's still time to book accommodation and enjoy the craic.
