With my 3 bottles of scotch they threw in a little gift, a nice Glencairn with Bowmore’s emblem on it.
Considering those glasses sell for 25$ a pop, it’s a hell of a nice gesture. I will buy whisky from Craft Cellars again, soon!``

The Mecca, the OG, Scotland is one of the places that whisky originated from. Though there is a general peaty, smokey, and earthy feel to Scotch whisky. The many regions of Scotland come through with characters of the land, climate, and the people producing it. This is going to be the first drink your dad bought for you.
There is a huge movement inspired by young producers placing American Whiskey and especially Kentucky Bourbon back on the map. American Whiskey is a spirit made from any cereal grain including rye, corn, barley and wheat. Though it has always been a staple beverage in the states, it was the past decade when it really took off and became a prestige’s collectors item. From your grandfather, to the savvy collector, to the young and stylish. This is truly something to watch for in the coming years.
O’Canada our home and native land! Why is Rye known as Canadian Whisky? Well there is a history of flour millers using their excess wheat to make whisky and then adding in rye to spice up the beverage. Consumers loved the this new flavourful blend so much that they coined the term Canadian Whisky. Typically, lighter and smoother than other whisky styles. This is what I’d use to make an amazing old fashion.
There was a brief period in early 19th century when Irish whiskey “played first fiddle” in the whiskey market over Scotland. As it being one of the homes where Whiskey originated from. You shouldn’t be surprised that producing the good stuff is in their blood. Though they soon after suffered a bust later falling to just 2 distilleries in 1978. They fought back and resurged in the 20th century, now in there is a movement of amazing new fresh craft style whiskies. Usually having a smoother finish, style is great for your Sunday Night.
