[0117]
£17.99
70cl/40%

Being ordinary is easy. Just keep your head down, follow the crowd, do as youíre told, never complain and stick to the straight and narrow. Safe, secure, straightforward. Painless, pedestrian and predictable. But dull, deadly dull.

And then thereís Black Bottle, a singular dram that stands up, demands attention and delivers huge chewy mouthfuls of flavour that cannot be ignored. Never reserved for faint praise, itís adored by the critics, loved across the land and inspires the kind of passionate devotion that can last a lifetime. Ordinary it is not.

Capturing the very essence of Islay in an artful marriage all seven of the islandís classic malts alongside some of the finest grain available, this is a blend to savour. Every sip is a celebration, every glass an occasion, every mouthful is smooth, full-bodied and uncompromising.

Being extraordinary may not be easy, but itís so much more satisfying. Dare to be different, insist on Black Bottle every time.

Taste Profile

Black Bottleís much lauded taste profile proudly wears its North East heritage on its sleeve.

While the taste is now skilfully crafted from the worlds renowned Islay malts, the original blend was cut from the peaty bogs of the Aberdeenshire crofters and washed by the salty seafront warehouses where the Aberdeen fishermen docked. Married within these bullish tastes and lightening the blend is a Speyside sweetness known throughout the world for its delicate footprint.

These tastes combine to create a dram that makes no apology for its complex character and consistently tips a wink at its Islay cousins, remembering a time when the fishermen of the North East stowed a Black Bottle in their cabins for a reminder of home.
