Angels' Nectar Whisky Caching - It's a wrap

That’s the Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caches all returned to Angels’ Nectar HQ. The Grantown cache was more challenging than we envisaged, so apologies for that.

Very many thanks to all at the Highlander Inn, Speyside Way Rangers, Anagach Woods Trust, Elephants in the Pantry, Old Bridge Inn, Deli Mair, and the Spirit of Speyside WhiskyFestival who helped us put the trail together.

A special congratulations to the Coopers who successfully found all three Angels' Nectar Whisky Caches, and a final thank you to all who joined in the fun, look what you left for the Angels!

Angels' Nectar Whisky Caching - Grantown spoiler

Hopefully you've found the Angels' Nectar Whisky Cache in Grantown via the emailed clues, but just in case here is a map to show the location of Ladies Walk versus the Mountain Bike trails. The cache itself is under a small cairn (a wee pile of stones), behind 'Dougie's' Bench, at Ordnance Survey ref: 032269.

Angels' Nectar Whisky Caching Craigellachie spoiler

Hopefully those of you who have been playing today have found the Angels’ Nectar Whisky Cache in Craigellachie, but just in case, its at Ordnance Survey Grid ref: 290452, on the hill side of the Speyside Way, underneath a rhododendron, which you'll find between this bench and the tall larch.

Introducing Angels' Nectar Whisky Caching - our whisky treasure hunt for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival

Helping themselves to every cask on Speyside, the Angels get a bad name. So for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, and with a nod to geo-caching, we at Angels' Nectar Whisky have decided to try and help the Angels make amends by giving something back.
So on behalf of the Angels, we will be laying a trail of three Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caches across Speyside, with a series of clues to find them during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. The first to find each Angels’ Nectar Whisky Cache will find one of our new 200ml bottles of Angels’ Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, perfect for sharing.
Whilst there is no charge to take part, we ask that if you take anything from the Angels' Nectar Whisky Caches, do please leave a whisky miniature (or better!) in its place. This way everyone who finds an Angels' Nectar Whisky Cache will be a winner.
The first step: please visit our listing on the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival website,  and register to begin receiving the clues. Good luck!

'Excellently-made malt' - Jim Murray on our Rich Peat

We are loving Jim Murray's review of our Rich Peat Edition in his 2017 Whisky Bible so thought we would share it here: 
(90.5) n22.5 peat and coal dust; t23 soft smoke on delivery followed through with ulmo honey and a twist of lemon. The sugars are profound; f22.5 slight vanilla, but the peat is more assured now; b22.5 excellently-made malt: sticks unerringly to the script. 46%
Thank you Jim!

Strane Gin matures

We are excited to release the new Limited edition Strane Oaked Gin.
Based on Strane London Dry Navy Strength Gin, Strane Oaked Gin has then been matured for eighteen months in a former Sherry butt, which has also previously matured heavily peated Smögen Whisky, and then bottled at 55% vol.. The sherry cask has added flavour and structure, and the result is a wonderfully fragrant sipping gin. Or for a long serve, Pär Caldenby, Distiller/Proprietor at the Smögen distillery, suggests replacing the whisky in your Whisky & Soda with Strane Oaked.
Strane Oaked Gin offers an astonishing crossover between Gin, Whisky and Sherry, which we are sure will delight fans of craft spirits.

Amongst others Strane Oaked Gin is now available from Hedonism Wines, Nickolls & Perks, Master of Malt, Robertsons of Pitlochry and Shop4whisky.
