Spotlight: Talisker

For Wild Spirits Everywhere

Produced at the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made by the sea since 1830, with its smell and taste instantly connecting you to its rugged maritime home. Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, windswept yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.

The Talisker family all have a peated, smoky flavour. This quality comes from the peat burned during the malting process and carries on it the salted smoke of an island battered by wind and waves. Beneath the smoke you’ll find soft fruits and cereal notes, with a distinctive peppery finish.

The perfect gift for adventurous wild spirits looking for a good way to start exploring smoky island whiskies.

The Bodega Series

The Talisker Bodega Series is an exploration of Sherry Cask finishes that illustrates the rarity and preciousness of the liquid and the true story only Talisker can tell. Paying tribute to the close relationship Talisker has had with Sherry, its Master of Malts has created an exceptional Talisker 41-year-old whisky finished in casks from the famed Sherry triangle.
