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!!!

WHISKY for ALL 13 - “The Young Ones” - Friday 15th October

Updated: Sep 16

A few people have wondered out loud if I drink great whisky that is 21 and younger? Well this amazing online whisky tasting is my riposte!

I’ve chosen some classics and hidden gems from the East Coast Whisky collection, alongside a stunning guest dram from a new bottler - Ferg & Harris…a Lochindaal 11, perfectly finished in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cask.

The Drams


INCHGOWER 12, ARRAN 16, BALBLAIR 19, BENRINNES 21 & GLEN MORAY 21

HAZELBURN 10, GLEN ORD 18, LOCHINDAAL 11, ARDMORE 10 & LONGROW 18


The Details


The tasting will be held on ZOOM, from 7.30-10pm on Friday 15th October. If you can’t make that time, a recording will be available afterwards. The TEN 20ml drams will be sent to you, 1st class signed for (in a padded box) 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 £75 inclusive of p&p (DPD to Europe is a bit more, available upon request). However you can get this tasting for just £60, if you join October’s Highland Park vertical tasting too!! (That’s £170 all in for 2 tastings & 20 drams, madness!!)


To join, please pay: https://www.paypal.me/ecwhisky including your name, address, & either "Whisky for All 13" or "WfA13HP" in the notes. 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


This will be another special tasting. I‘m looking forward to spending an evening with you, with great whiskies and good conversation, and above all introducing you to the Indaal, with help from special guest, Ferg & Harris brand ambassador, Andrew Wilson!!


Cheers,


Frederick Maitland
