This month’s beer pack has been chosen with interesting flavours in mind. Whether that is from the added elderflower in the case of the Birds & Bees, the addition of blood orange juice and zest with the Beavertown, or added cherry in the case of the really rather tasty Krafty Cherry Lambic.
Part of the Royal Mile Whiskies family, the branch sits in the heart of the bustling Perthshire town and caters to both local clientele and a very healthy tourist trade, giving a very vibrant and varied sales mix.
Each month we will be releasing a case of wine which we think represents some of the best and most exciting wines in our current range. These will be a mix of reds and whites, and occasionally some Rosé and Fizz if the occasion arises. These wines are handpicked by our knowledgeable staff who, as with all our wines, have tried and tested them to assure that we are only offering the best. In this month’s case we have wines from South Africa, Portugal, France, California, Spain and Hungary.
Each month we will be releasing a selection of our best beers. Beers we thought were brilliant when we first tried them. For our first set, we have decided to pick quite a few different styles of beer that we think are top notch. Over the next month, we may add others sets (an IPA set or a sour set for example) but for this main set, we will try and explore as many different brewers, and styles of beer as possible each month, with the only stipulation being that our staff think these are some of the best beers we have to offer.
With summer sadly on its way out, lets take a look at some of the exciting seasonal beers that will compensate for the lack of sunlight. First up, a beer style we look forward to every year: Oktoberfest Beers
In Part 2 of our Exciting Scottish Spirits articles we take a look at Scotland’s first rum distiller: Dark Matter distillers and we try their brand new spiced rum. Read on to find out about the interesting experimental stuff they are doing there, and to get the opportunity to pre-order a bottle.
