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!!!

This is my favourite closed distillery, and I can wait to share it's merits with you. We will start from 1980 and go all the way back to 1965, as you can see in the following photos...



...these are some very special whiskies and so I do hope you can join us. There are currently only 0 places remaining!!


The Details


The tasting will be held on ZOOM, from 7.30-10pm on Friday 11th March (If you can’t make that time, a recording will be available afterwards). The tasting is designed to be informative, yet informal, people really enjoy the fact that everyone can join in, and there are no whisky snobs or show-offs allowed!!


The TEN drams will be sent to you, 1st class signed for (in a padded box) usually at least a week before the tasting. You will also receive some tasting notes, the running order, and the Zoom link in the days before the event.


This tasting costs £180 inclusive of p&p (DPD to Europe is a bit more, available upon request). Places are limited so please book early.


To join, please pay: https://www.paypal.me/ecwhisky including your name, address, & GLENLOCHY in the notes. If you wish, you can also pay by bank transfer, please contact me for the details.


If this is your first tasting, please also email your name and address to dram@eastcoastwhisky.com


To get the jump on these tastings, why not join the EAST COAST WHISKY CLAN on WhatsApp? To do so just email me your mobile and we will get this set up for you pronto!!


I was asked, how do you follow Brora? Well this is one way, and there is much more to come!!


Cheers,


Frederick Maitland
