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.
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.
Part of an exceptional era of distillation at Tullibardine when the distillery was bought after lying dormant since 1993. Distillation was managed by Master Blender John Black and there was huge investment in high quality casks for maturation.
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.
Visiting a distillery can be great fun and viewing the stills is always a highlight because in your mind, or at least in my mind, you recognize this is where that distillery’s unique spirit is created.Regardless, if folk suggest that it takes place during fermentation or it’s more to do with barley strain or to do with the casks – a great deal of responsibility lies on those elegant copper pots. So how do they do it and what influences the spirit character?First and foremost, the still, pipes, conde…read more
As an independent bottler, cask management and a good wood policy are essential. It is the only way I can potentially add value because I can’t control the distillate. Oak casks finished at the Bodega It is a very important step in the production of good Scotch and 50-70% of the bottled spirits flavour will come from the cask. Cask maturation provides colour, it removes undesirable flavours and the spirit extracts desirable flavours from the oak. Oak contains many sugars! Each year we lose about 3% t…read more
In February I was fortunate to visit my friend in New Zealand and whilst there I visited one of New Zealand’s newest distillery, Cardrona. Cardrona has developed a great reputation amongst whisky fans in New Zealand. Two different bars recommended the distillery to me and raved about the spirit it produced; they have just managed to release some whisky, earlier than expected due to positive responses at a whisky festival in New Zealand. Cardrona can be found in Wanaka, near Queenstown, lying in a v…read more
