Continuing our teeming throng of industry leading Tweet Tastings into the new year, we’re absolutely delighted to announce our first event of 2023!
On January 18th, we’ll be teaming up again with our very good friends at The Whisky Cellar, to pour and explore our way through some of their latest sensory stories from their vibrant and vivacious Easy Sipper range, along with an incredible line-up of drams and a tot of rum from their Brig O' Perth and Pintail heritage brands.
Brig O’ Perth was first blended and bottled by Perth wine merchant and grocer, Matthew Gloag & Son, in the basement of their shop at 20-24 Atholl Street in early 1896 as their “house blended Scotch” some 9 months before the company’s Famous Grouse brand first appeared. The brand was acquired by The Whisky Cellar as their in-house Blended Scotch and occasional Single Cask bottling label in February 2019.
Pintail was first bottled in 1931 as Matthew Gloag & Son’s house brand of Dry Sherry and soon won international awards for its superior quality. The downturn in Sherry consumption in the latter half of the 20th century signalled the end for the brand. The Whisky Cellar acquired the rights in 2021, lining it up once again with its old ‘Brig O’ Perth’ stablemate.
