Chorlton Whisky


A couple of new festive releases are here now, and I still have a final few bottles of Tormore from a previous outturn. Some good stuff is already lined up for the new year, and as usual the best way to keep up to date is by signing up to the mailing list here.

If you’re looking for one of the older bottlings then feel free to drop me a line and I may be able to point you towards one of our stockists.

An important note: I cannot currently ship to the EU. I’m really very sorry about this, and hope to be able to resume at some point.

Shipping is charged at cost, and there’s a free local pick-up option at checkout if you’re in the Manchester area. If your location isn’t available please get in touch and I’ll see what I can do. All the packaging used for shipping is recyclable.

All Chorlton Whisky releases are bottled at natural strength from a single cask, with no chill-filtering or added colouring. No monkey business, basically.

Speyside 13-year-old

This is sherry-matured single malt from Glenrothes distillery.

You almost get two whiskies for one here. Neat this is rich and intense, with chocolate, peanut brittle, dried figs, jaffa cake and a thickly-textured mouthfeel. Adding water brings a zesty fruitiness into the foreground (orange cake, grapefruit jam, apple pie), with the richer caramel and nutty notes returning in the finish. It’s great fun to play around and find your own perfect balance!

This whisky was distilled on the 19th June 2008, and matured in a second-fill sherry butt until being bottled in November 2021. It produced 368 bottles at a cask strength of 64.6% and they are available for £76.50 each.

Staoisha 8-year-old

This is peated single malt from Bunnahabhain distillery on Islay.

The nose starts with smoky banana bread, before settling down into a clean, coastal smokiness with a lightly fruity background. The palate is bigger and smokier than the nose suggests, balancing ashy peat and barbecue smoke with a sweet and creamy texture. The finish is long and smoky, with a crisp tangerine fruitiness. Lovely spirit, and a cask that’s had just the right amount to say!

This whisky was distilled on the 16th October 2013, and matured in a first-fill barrel until being bottled in November 2021. It produced 255 bottles at a cask strength of 59.9% and they are available for £65 each. One per person please.


Tormore 28-year-old

Properly matured single malt here from the reliably fruity Tormore distillery!

On the nose this is a real fruit basket (red apples, orange drops, marmalade, juicy Riesling), backed with some mineralic and foresty depth (waxes, flints and ferns). The palate is lightly syrupy and waxy, with cream teas and biscuits mixed in with the fruits. The finish is very clean, with blood oranges and mandarins. Very summery, and utterly delicious.

This whisky was distilled on the 16th November 1992, and matured in a refill hogshead until being bottled in July 2021. It produced 253 bottles at a cask strength of 42.4% and they are available for £175 each. Last few.

Tote Bag

A sturdy canvas shopping bag with long handles and a gusset, perfect for transporting whisky or other essentials. Screenprinted in Yorkshire. £4 each, and can be added to any bottle order for no extra postage.

    Do you ship to the U.S.? I’d love to get a hold of some. Thanks!

      Hi Matt. I can’t send to the US directly I’m afraid, but some of my stockists (Whiskybase, Tyndrum, Nickolls & Perks, Milroy’s) should be able to ship to you.

    I have just bought and tried the Cataibh 10-year-old here in Hong Kong. What a fantastic whisky this is (Clynelish) immediately impressed with the initial power and flavour and adding a few drops of water made this explode with aroma and hidden flavours. Right up there as one of my favorite expressions.
