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!!!

The Glenlivet Tasting - Friday 24th February 2023

There are some whisky tastings you should just not miss, and this is one of them. Heavily featuring The Glenlivet core range from the 1960's (distilled in the late forties/early fifties), these drams are one of the few remaining whisky secrets. Stunning lightly peated Speyside whisky from another time. These beauties were what other distilleries were trying to emulate!! This a unique opportunity to taste these legends from the past. If that wasn't enough there are also thirty and forty year old Glenlivets, distilled in the seventies, included for you as well. Also if you sign up for the full monty, you will receive a free special mystery dram too!!

The Drams
