Our Single Malt Selection

Single Malt whisky is a malt whisky exclusively made from malted barley. It must be distilled using pot stills at a single distillery and must be aged for at least three years in oak casks.
Single malts are typically associated to Scotland, though now they are also being successfully  produced in other countries around the world mainly Japan, Ireland, Wales, Germany, France and other interesting countries like India.
Patrons are welcome to come and savour different flavours from around the globe. We stock a variety of 40 different single malts every time.
