Staff Picks for July

This month it was Geraldine’s turn to choose.

1 – Auchentoshan Classic

When I first started working in The Pot Still at the age of 19  this was the first whisky i was made to try when i was sent to Auchentoshan Distillery.  I didn’t like it at that point and could not understand why people drank whisky !! Oh how times have changed!  Now I like it, a lovely wee breakfast dram.

2 – Macallan 12yr

This is the first whisky i remember liking. It would have been the 10yr Macallan at the time but that’s long gone now.  Still love this dram.

3- Longmorn 16yr single cask , cask strength. 59.6%

This is a cracking little dram and one of my favourites on the bar just now. Sherry cask matured and only available at Chivas Brothers distilleries.

    Planning on moving to Scotland and can’t wait to try some decent Scotch My mother’s name was Mary MacDonald and she loved to sing ‘I Belong to Glasgow’ and ‘a Wee Deoch an Doris’ among other Scottish traditional favourites. i hope I can sing them too,when I get to Scotland. with a wee ‘drappee’ in my hand.

    We visited The Pot Still last summer and was so impressed with your selection and knowledge of scotch whisky. My husband will be celebrating his 60th birthday next month and I am looking for a few recommendations for a special BD present for him. He typically likes single malt such as Glengoyne 15 & 18 year old, Auchentoshan, Glenmorangie, Glenfiddich & Laphroaig. I’m hoping I can find him something special that is available here in Canada. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Greetings from Russia! We were in Pot Still by accident – we wanted to hide from the rain and found ourselves in the epicenter of a real holiday! It was a lot of fun to watch the Scottish guys and girls watch the Rugby match where England play against Scotland)) there Were a lot of emotions and we felt like we were in the company of friends! We’ve never seen so many bottles of Whiskey before!!! Although we live in Russia, I don’t drink strong alcohol, even vodka. However, in Pot Still, we realized that not trying real Scotch Whisky would be a crime against ourselves!The bartender girl offered us four types of Whiskey and told us in detail about the taste and manufacturer of each bottle. Behind the counter we saw an interesting man with a long beard. It turned out that this is the owner of the bar, who recently received the title of Bar Person of the Year. He was very concerned about the schotlan Rugby team and communicated well with the visitors. It was nice, too. We really enjoyed our time at Pot Still. Cool atmosphere and great drunk Whiskey!!! We recommend this place to everyone!!!))
