About Chapter 7 Whisky's Girvan

This grain whisky distillery is located on the Clyde, in the coastal Lowlands. William Grant & Sons decided to build Girvan Distillery after a dispute with Distillers Company Limited. William Grant & Sons decided to run a TV ad for Standfast Whisky from Grant's. Distillers Company Limited was against this, so William Grant & Sons decided to build Girvan distillery. They did this in just 9 months. Original Coffey stills were used until 1995. Nowadays Girvan uses 6 column stills for its production. The distillery mainly produces grain whisky for brands, as well as Hendrick's Gin. It was also a site for Ladyburn Whisky at one point.

Chapter 7 Whisky has already bottled three single grain whiskies from Scotland, source from two distilleries. This Girvan edition comes from 7 different casks which were vatted together and married in two bourbon barrels. The cask strength is low, which shows the angels have been very greedy throughout the 30 years of maturation!

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.
