The clever plug system allows you to invert a classic bottle on the granite stand and dispense with a stainless steel bar-style handle.
No more diluted drams! These simple whisky chiller cubes are made from granite and soapstone – simply pop in the freezer for four hours before use, and they’ll keep your drink cool without disrupting the flavours.
This little jar packs a punch – peppery wholegrain mustard, sweet honey and smoky Scottish whisky combine for a potential new favourite condiment that’s guaranteed to be popular with a whisky fan. Dollop alongside a Ploughman’s lunch, add to salad dressings or use as part of a sticky glaze for sausages.
