About Chapter 7 Glen Elgin 13 Year Old
Glen Elgin started operating in 1900 and for half a century the distillery was run with paraffin, without electricity. It's located in Elgin and belongs Diageo, contributing most of its production predominantly to White Horse blend. 90 hours of fermentation and slow distillation gives a distinctive fruitiness to Glen Elgin. It's very popular with Independent bottlers. Chapter 7 Whisky wanted to try something different and finished the contents of a bourbon hogshead in 3 octave casks. In this bottling you will experience a unique blend of Oloroso and Ruby Port wood finishes.

What you need to know 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.
