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.
Glenlossie Distillery was founded in 1876 near Elgin in Speyside, with its own platform at the Elgin-Perth railway. The distillery is well-known for producing a light and delicate spirit with fruity sweetness, using water from the Bardon Burn for production.
Since 1897, single Malt whisky has been distilled at Glen Moray on the banks of the River Lossie, just outside Elgin, one of Scotland’s oldest towns. In its lifetime, the Speyside distillery has known only 5 distillery managers. Glen Moray is well-known for producing spirit with a light body and sweetness with spicy fruit and honey notes. With only 62 bottles, this is an extremely rare single malt whisky.
Named after a local burn, Linkwood is an active distillery located in Elgin, within the Speyside region. The distillery was officially founded in 1825, but its roots date back to 1821 when it would have been an illicit distillery. Linkwood is synonymous with well-balanced distillates of medium body and sweetness encompassing fruity, floral, honey, malt and spice notes, making it a great example a Speyside whisky.
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.
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 limited edition of individually labelled bottles of Scotch.
Our whisky releases can take years to source, but often sell-out in just weeks, proving to be hugely popular with collectors and connoisseurs worldwide.
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. When we release we bottle at natural cask strength, with no colouring or chill filtering.
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.
The casks may be our discoveries, but a single bottle is your chance to start a luxury whisky collection of your own.
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.
Whisky regions are very interesting because on the one hand they help to categorise an industry by whisky type, and an industry so diverse requires some level organisation to manage, whilst on the other hand they are almost irrelevant. Most whisky shops will categorise their stock by region and the valuation of whisky at wholesale is done with the region, among other factors. Visit our shop to take a look at some examples.Here is a brief description of the whisky regions. Highland Floral with honey an…read more
Whisky glasses are a contentious aspect of the whisky industry because everyone has a favourite and admittedly I’ve never really had a particular preference. More and more often, I’ll visit festivals where aficionados have taken their own glasses and despite some appearing more cumbersome the aficionado will be undeterred!The majority of whisky festivals provide the standard Glencairn glass which is practical and strong; It has a tulip shape which is good for getting aromas and the ball shape allows you…read more
