Gift Buyer's Guide 2016

It's the time of year again where whisky sales soar as it becomes a top gift choice. We fully encourage this behaviour- although it's a shame whisky lovers aren't showered with whisky all year round! ;) We thought we'd provide suggestions for those looking to buy whisky this festive season, in hopes of making the experience easier; it can be a bit daunting with so many whiskies on offer. The good news is, if you need any help selecting a perfect whisky gift for that whisky lover in your life, we can help.

There was some tough debate among our team in selecting these, but we settled on the below. Happy (and easy) shopping!
