☆ This is a members-only event ☆

Not only is Ailsa Bay the newest and most advanced Single Malt distillery from the Grant Family (Glenfiddich, The Balvenie, Kininvie, etc), it is also the first peated Lowland Single Malt Whisky. 

James MacRae, UK's Ailsa Bay Brand Ambassador, will be dropping into the Wild Rover to pour out some whisky even the most well-travelled enthusiast may not have tasted. 

Peated whisky is not associated with Lowland Scotch whisky but after eight years of production, the first official bottling as a single malt was a no-age-statement heavily peated whisky released in February 2016. 

The expression unleashed the full flexibility of Ailsa Bay's production set up, combining innovative techniques in the way of spirit cut points, vatting, maturation and even 'sweetness measurement'.
