About Chapter 7 Whisky's Imperial 22 Year Old

lmperial Distillery's chequered history means it never had a chance to become established as a single malt brand. It's a story of bad timing.

Owners mothballed and reopened it several times in its hundred-year history. By the time single Malt was becoming popular in the 1970s, it was already committed to supplying their malt for blends. Single malt whisky came into its own in the 1990s. But Imperial was closed in 1998 and demolished in 2013 to make way for the new Dalmunach Distillery. So it missed the opportunity to get the accolades it deserves.

While it has not reached the cult status of Brora or Port Ellen. Its reputation continues to grow. There isn't much stock left and this cask is one of the very few left. This releases from Chapter 7 whisky is a unicorn bottle!

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.
