Humble Beginnings...

Like more than a few good things in life, my whisky passion started with a dram, a dram of whisky on my wedding day. It was nothing fancy mind, just an aptly named “Founders Reserve”.  From there I dived deep into the whisky ocean, and went - like a lot of you I imagine - on a wonderful journey of discovery.  A journey not just of taste, places, and special moments in time...but of whisky people and their stories.

Whisky is a wonderful medicine. When treated with respect, it brings people together, and encourages community, sharing and enjoyment.  Whisky stimulates creativity and its appreciation. It can open up the heart and stir the soul. 

From just the three simple ingredients of barley, water, and yeast, and then through a romantic industrial - or even alchemical process - beautiful spirit emerges to be filled into casks, and rests there for time and wood to work their magic.  Later, sometimes much later, design & bottling occurs. Only then comes the special moment for us all to taste and discover this water of life.  

East Coast Whisky represents the continuation of this journey, into sharing with you what whisky is out there, the experiences and stories it brings, and the people it meets along its way.

There will be blogging, tastings, whisky meals, festivals, cask bottling, and more as we journey to maturation.

Our focus is coastal and local, as myself and the team are based in East Lothian and Edinburgh, Scotland. Yet we are open to all who form this global whisk(e)y community, near and far.

So welcome, pour yourself a #dramo'the day and enjoy!!!

Back to the Future - LIVE food & whisky event @ The Edinburgh Larder - Friday 23rd August

Remember these crazy nights???...

Well they are back!!!

I am really excited to be taking East Coast Whisky back to The Edinburgh Larder on Friday 23rd August. We enjoyed so many legendary nights there in the couple of years before Covid. Of course since then our community has grown to be a tribe of worldwide whisky lovers through our online tastings. Yet it remains hard to beat coming together in person to enjoy the water of life. Alongside the tours I’ve been wanting to get back to more food & whisky nights, and in-person tastings at ECW HQ. Finally then, they are back, both with this festive date and a more formal whisky dinner on October 4th (& then the Dornoch weekender in early November)!!!

To keep this as chiefly a community event it’s going out to you all through the website and WhatsApp. This wont be on Eventbrite. Numbers are limited at the Larder so to fill it can I make a request? Please bring a friend or two!!

The evening will start at 7pm and run until 10pm. It will include food, and a great amount of quality whisky (say 14 drams!!), as well as the opportunity to take either bottles or samples away with you. The inclusive price is £80. Please pay either (f&f) or bank transfer. Book soon to ensure you get your places!! See you soon!!
