About this whisky
48 Blended Malt is a limited edition whisky by indie bottlers Heroes and Heretics. The number 48 is often associated with divine humanity and creative expression. The label is a homage to the 80’s. A retrospective to memorable nights, with a modern twist. A time when things were simpler and parties were wilder.
Whisky matured in sherry butts is something quite special. The wood that once held sherry adds to both the flavour and the aroma of the whisky maturing in the cask. Usually crafted from European or American oak and hold around 500 litres.

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.
