So, this is definitely the last brand we will be announcing for Whisky Bristol Underground.
We are extremely pleased to announce that Claxton’s Spirits have been in touch and suggested dropping a couple of bottles over to us for Bristol; who are we to say no?
On our table-top, alongside our other delicious wares, you will find a ridiculously good Glen Elgin 20 Year Old (only 294 bottles produced) and a huge Ledaig 9 Year Old (only 334 bottles produced).
Claxton’s bottles always impress and we’re certain these two will blow Bristol away!
So, looks like the dram announcements haven’t finished yet!
Come one, come all, to the DBC stand on Saturday, at Whisky Bristol Underground, where we you will now be able to find 2 fantastic whiskies from Indian distillers, Paul John.
We will have both Brilliance and Bold expressions available to sample.
Brilliance is the smooth, bourbon cask matured core expression of the Paul John range, while Bold is a fully peated dram with in your face smoke and peppery notes to get those tastebuds tingling.
So, we thought to ourselves, it’s the week of what is set to be an amazing whisky festival, how can it possibly be any better…
Oh yeah, free whisky!
Head down to the DBC stand, this Saturday, at Whisky Bristol Underground for your chance to win a bottle of Glendronach 12 Year Old.

After some wrangling and rough-housing we have somehow managed to pry 2 epic drams from the hands of That Boutique-y Whisky Company to present at Whisky Bristol Underground!
Joining the rest of our cracking lineup, we are overjoyed to announce that you will be able to sample both a 15 year old Bruichladdich and an Invergordon that clocks in at a whopping 42 years old!
These are both drams not to be missed and with demand expected to be through the roof get over to us sooner rather than later!
Dead Bottle Collective are extremely pleased to announce that we have been invited to run the ‘Bloggers Choice’ stand at this years Whisky Bristol Underground.
After graciously accepting this offer, we have managed to source a stellar line-up for festival-goers to sample, marvel at and fall in love with:
- We will have Scottish stalwarts, Glenfarclas’ legendary cask strength offering, 105, available to try – one dram every whisky drinker should be well acquainted with.
- Our next distillery is one you may not have tried before.
After sampling a measure or two of their Pinot Noir finished expression, we made sure to make contact with Hellyers Road Distillery, of Tasmania, who will have 3 of their brilliant drams on show, for you to try.
- Islay farm distillery, Kilchoman, have linked up with us in order to bring their Sanaig expression to the festival.
Matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, to offer a fantastic twist on the traditional Islay peated malt.
- To throw a true curve-ball at you, we will have 2 cask aged gins from Firkin Gins available to try, either neat, or with a splash of something else.
We will be announcing more brands in the coming days and weeks, as we continue to work to give the attendees of Whisky Bristol Underground the best drams possible.

Sometimes, it’s good to spread your wings. Most of my whisky friends live close to me and most of the tastings I go to are in Birmingham or Stourbridge. So, when I noticed Stoke Whisky Festival on the internet, I thought, “Hell, why not?” Continue reading Stoke Whisky Festival 2017
Wherever my whisky life takes me, over land or sea or foam, the Midlands Whisky Festival will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only is it the first whisky festival I ever attended and the place where so much of my whisky education has taken place, but it also holds so many memories of good times and adventures with my friends. This year’s spring offering was arguably the best one yet, for many reasons, but mainly for a host of stunning drams at every turn. Below are my ten highlights, a list which took a lot of whittling down:

It’s three am. Dressed in a bright white blazer I am dancing, alone, on stage, at my local goth/biker bar, to 90s rock legends hole. I guess sometimes you just really need to celebrate!

It’s 2am on a Sunday morning.
I have no idea how I got home.
My head’s pounding and there’s a strange buzzer ringing throughout the house.
What the hell happened?

Whisky Birmingham: the first big whisky event in my calendar this year. Despite drinking whisky for a few years now, last year was my first time at Whisky Birmingham. Not only did I love it enough to return this year (despite being “hungover as fuck”, as Tomasz reminded me on Saturday), but it also convinced my to join The Birmingham Whisky Club and take whisky a lot more seriously. Needless to say, I had another great time this year. So, obligatory waffle over; here are my top ten highlights of this year’s festival: Continue reading Rob B’s 10 to 1 – Whisky Birmingham
