WHISKI ROOMS crowned Scotland’s Whisky Bar of the Year 2013

ImageThursday 7th November saw Scoltand’s top licensed venues crowned at the annual SLTN Awards in Glasgow and Edinburgh’s WHISKI Rooms was honoured as Whisky Bar of the Year. Only two years after opening, the venue was clearly delighted with the accolade

“This award is testament to the hard work put in by all the staff and the unique way we promote whisky with daily whisky tastings and our focus in championing our national drink, whisky. I think it is clear to all that we are absolutely delighted”, said Anne Still, director and co-owner.

Atlast, our online whisky shop went live in time for the Edinburgh Festival on the 6th August.  The Whisky Still will sell all the malt whiskies that can be sampled in the WHISKI bar and over the coming weeks we will be adding more so the range will exceed the Whiski bar’s malt whisky range.  Unforuntaley we have had to restrict to UK delivery only at the moment due to some information saying we cant export overseas – we are looking into it and aim to resolve this as soon as we possible can  and resume our worldwide delivery programme.

Have a look around our online whisky shop www.thewhiskystill.com and until the end of August, use discount code TWR-0810 for 5% off your total order at the checkout.

Annan Whisky Distillery Plans Approved

Always happy to see new whisky distilleries being renewed or built in Scotland but on my recent visit to Dumfries, I read in the local paper that  one in Annan is to be revived – 91 years after it stopped whisky production. This is great news for the area especially as Annan is classed as a deprived area with high unemployment and it will be a huge boost to that part of Scotland.

The Dumfries Standard article had this to say :

“The ambitious £6million scheme was approved by Annandale and Eskdale councillors.

Dumfries-born Professor David Thomson and his wife, Teresa Church, are “delighted” to get the go ahead for the development.

A wee dram of Annandale Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky could be ready for sampling at its earliest stage by 2014 at a tourist centre which forms part of the plans for the dilapidated Northfield site. 

The couple plan to start work straight away on restoring the former Johnnie Walker distillery.

The project will create 18 jobs initially.

Professor Thomson estimates that it will take 15 months for the building work to be completed.

The B-listed complex was on Scotland’s buildings at risk register until the pair bought it in 2007.

Its heritage and that of the local area will be highlighted for visitors while the whisky matures. The plans include a visitors shop, cafe/restauramt and exhibition area.

A spokesman for the Scottish Whisky Association, who said: “A new distillery at Annandale will be a very welcome addition to the Scotch whisky industry.

“The new distillery will build sustainable benefits to the local economy in terms of both local employment and tourism.” Annandale South councillor Sean Marshall said that the development “will be a boost for Annan’s economy”.

We wish them well and look forward to visiting the distillery when it opens and tasting the whisky when it’s ready, stocking it in the WHISKI bar and selling it in The Whisky Still shop.
