About Chapter 7 Allt-a Bhainne 12 Year Old
Allt-a Bhainne is a silent hero for Chivas Brothers servicing as one of the lead malt whiskies in its Chivas Regal Blends. The distillery was built in 1975 and is not aesthetically one of the most beautiful in Scotland, operating with all the equipment in a single room with the mash tun at one end and the four stills at the other. Chapter 7 Whisky is no stranger to Allt-a Bhainne with its first ever release, a 19 year old bourbon hogshead that raised eye-brows in 2014 and received great reviews.
This particular cask has been Chapter 7's baby since 2016. They've been watching its maturation carefully and decided to give this extremely fruity whisky a twist by finishing it in one of their Caol Ila first fill bourbon casks. They cut this whisky to 49.7% alcohol by volume where we think it performs best and lets out all the aromas, making this dram very accessible to any whisky fan.

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.
