About this Chapter 7 whisky
Built in 1825 Ben Nevis has had many owners. Joseph Hobbs, a spirits smuggler during prohibition, owned the distillery from 1951 to 1981. The distillery is now owned by Asahi Group and one-third of its new make is going into Nikka blends. Ben Nevis has become a victim of its own success with great releases from Indie bottlers. Chapter 7's Highland 19 YO Small Batch has won Whiskies of the World Gold Medal in San Francisco back in 2017. Now, unfortunately, Ben Nevis casks are becoming a rare find. This 8 year old bourbon barrel is a great example of what this distillery can deliver at a younger age.

What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
Which couriers do you use?
In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
