About this Roger's Whisky Company release
This is the third release from Independent Bottler Roger's Whisky Company, and the first in his "Hidden Treasures" range. When I spoke with Roger about this new range he explained that he wanted to offer great quality, yet modest, whiskies at an affordable price. Still the same great quality of single cask whiskies, maximum flavour, and the beautiful artwork that Roger is fast becoming known for; but by being clever with cask and distillery selection, Roger is able to keep the price as accessible as possible.
In the case of this great quality Speyside whisky, Roger has found a cask that doesn't come with naming rights - hence the "secret" distillery. So the dram you're trying is from one of the biggest Speyside names, but without the increased cost associated with the brand name. If you like digging for hidden treasures, try and decipher the label artwork to see if you can spot any clues...
A delicious Speyside Scotch whisky bottled at a hefty 56.1% ABV, natural colour, without chill filtration. And an artisan product from an indie bottler, limited to just 285 bottles. At this price, you really can't go wrong.

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.
