Due to the sale of alcohol on our site, we are required to ensure our customers are of legal age to purchase whisky sold in Scotland.
Persons who wish to purchase our whisky must be 18 or older. By entering our site, you agree to this condition.
If you are not over the age of 18, we are sorry but you'll have to wait a little bit longer to taste our exquisite scotch.
It all starts with a dram.
I created Hannah Whisky Merchants to share my unique discoveries. Our iconic label, Lady of the Glen, gives you my personal guarantee that every cask has been taste-tested and independently bottled by us, kept as pure as we found it in a Scottish distillery.
I’m proud to offer worldwide collectors and connoisseurs instant access to extremely limited releases of premium, single cask whisky. And it all started with an inspiring dram passed between father and son.
Currently, 20 million casks of whisky lie maturing in private Scottish locations. Lady of the Glen offers you the grandest handful of these.
We are independent bottlers of single cask whisky, so each release represents one special distillery, one oak cask and a finite amount of individually labelled bottles of Scotch.
Our limited edition whisky releases can take years to source, but often sell-out in just weeks, proving to be hugely popular with collectors and connoisseurs from Europe to the USA, Taiwan to the Netherlands, and Switzerland to Ukraine.
Our success lies in the purity of our product. We never buy in bulk or fill warehouses with our latest finds. Each cask is hand-sourced, independently bottled and 100% natural with zero tampering or chill-filtering. We always release a cask in 300 bottles or less for extra quality assurance, and the whisky arrives straight in your glass at its natural strength (>50%).
There’s no magic to our methods – besides the Angel’s taking their share! We’ve simply built lasting relationships with talented experts who can locate the best of those 20 million casks. The rest is up to the whisky.
When sourcing whisky, taste is our top priority. We can guarantee the quality of every release thanks to a dedicated group of whisky enthusiasts, who are independently sent new samples to share their genuine tasting notes online. Follow them to find your desired flavour profile.
Anywhere between 50% and 80% of a whisky’s flavour is imparted by its cask. So, you can understand why the most incredible releases have spent some serious time maturing in top-quality oak (at least 3 years). Gregor, our founder, personally tastes every cask – and if it doesn’t knock his socks off, we simply don’t stock it.
Every Lady of the Glen label is embellished with iconic floral detailing, featuring your whisky’s unique number and single malt specifics. This not only ensures a gift or investment is protected from fraud, but confirms the spirit’s exact origin. With us, you can always collect with confidence.
Founder and Director of Hannah Whisky Merchants, Gregor, comes from a proud family of bagpipers, or simply ‘pipers’. This profession gained his father a considerable collection of rare whiskies as ‘thank you’ gifts, which Gregor grew up admiring.
Today Gregor has the freedom to collect his own rare whiskies – but shares them with international connoisseurs. He’s created the unique brand, Lady of the Glen, to make his discoveries readily available to passionate collectors, rather than exclusively to the whisky elite. He wants to educate people on the quality difference between buying single casks from independent whisky bottlers, compared to blends from major brands.
The name ‘Lady of the Glen’ was inspired by a heroic character from Gregor’s favourite Scottish folklore story, The Green Lady, which he first heard during his studies at Stirling University. Enamoured by the tale, Gregor knew naming his first brand something similar would drive him to make it a success.
Since we began in 2012, we have already delivered 1,000 individual bottles of premium whisky worldwide. And with Gregor currently completing a Masters degree at University of Heriot-Watt to further his knowledge of distilling, we are always on the lookout for the next exciting dram to bring fellow Scotch-heads…
We celebrate the natural heritage of Scotch whisky by exclusively sharing single cask discoveries under our premium label, Lady of the Glen. Our spirit is sourced from distilleries in Speyside, Highland, Lowland and Islay regions.
Every cask is finite and must come to an end. Once Lady of the Glen limited edition releases are sold out – like our fleeting Littlemill and Bowmore releases – you will only find a nostalgic snapshot of them on our Collection page.
The casks may be our discoveries, but a single bottle is your chance to start a luxury whisky collection of your own.
Last month we released four Whiskies which marked our return following a bottle a design project.The marquee release of this batch was the limited edition Macallan.The spirit was originally acquired from a larger cask release but was filled into a smaller Octave cask which could only fit around fifty litres. The result is a quicker rate of evaporation and a greater amount of wood exposure for the spirit which produces deeper flavour. This process creates a unique flavour profile limited only to the spirit i…read more

This part 1 of 2 part piece on the development of Whisky flavourProducers and customers will wait years for Whisky to be ‘ready’. For many it is an assumption that the older the Whisky then the better quality it is. How quality is understood with Whisky has a lot to do with flavour. To understand a Whisky’s quality through flavour it is essential to know how flavour is recognized through the senses and how it is measured through various sensory analysis. An evaluation of the key stage of maturation ca…read more
