Shed a few pounds

Soggy January A new year is now in full swing and for us whisky bottlers it can be a bit of a struggle to get going in January. After a couple of weeks of consuming anything with an ABV above 3% or cheese in the ingredients, motivation can be hard to find. Add to that, […]

Indie Bottlers

Independent bottling – what’s all that about? How would we know? We asked James Angus instead, who put’s it to his wife, who also doesn’t know and puts it back to him to come up with the goods… The indie bottler By James Angus As a few people have messaged me, asking about indie bottles […]

Shedache

A quick update but mainly a slow moan… By crikey. It’s been one of those weeks where my already grey hair must have gone at least two tones greyer. Orders not turning up, labels going south, delays, losses, and fiendish accounting software that’s designed to make someone’s job easier, just not mine. We all have […]

Eat your greens…

James Angus returns with his unique enthusiasm for whisky and here at The Sipping Shed we love his honest approach even if we do legally distance our Shed from it.

Shed a tear

We’ve been left Shed-shocked recently by some distressing news from the bottling team. The fabulous 11 year old Aultmore, drawn from a single refill sherry cask that I’ve been promising you, is now finally bottled. But sadly, the bottle count is lower than anticipated. Much lower.
