THIS MONTH’S FEATURED WHISKY

CONNOISSEURS CHOICE

CAOL ILA 1969 17YO & DALWHINNIE 1962 20YO

The Brown Label on the Connoisseurs Choice series was used between 1980 and 1988 by the legendary independent bottler Gordon & Macphail.

Once again, we are thrilled to have opened a pair of iconic bottles from a highly collectable series. 

CBTD NO.21 is a 20 year old Dalwhinnie, distilled in 1962 and CBTD NO.22 is a 17 year old Caol Ila distilled in 1969.

In fact, the Caol Ila 1969 is such a rare bottle that we could only see 3 sold at auction in the last 11 years. 

WE REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN WHISKY WAS FOR DRINKING. WE SET UP CHEAPER BY THE DRAM TO BRING WHISKY BACK TO THE DRINKERS AND PROVIDE RARE AND INTERESTING WHISKY AT AN ACCESSIBLE PRICE.

WE HAVE SOURCED BOTTLES THAT WOULD BE OTHERWISE INACCESSIBLE TO THE CASUAL DRINKER. WE THEN SPLIT THEM INTO DRAMS, ESSENTIALLY SHARING THE COST BETWEEN OUR CUSTOMERS.

OUR DRAMS ARE FOR DRINKING AND ARE STRICTLY NOT FOR RESALE TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE ALWAYS FOR DRINKERS NOT COLLECTORS.

AS FEATURED IN

FIND OUT WHAT OTHER WHISKY LOVERS THINK OF CHEAPER BY THE DRAM. WE’RE THRILLED TO BE GETTING THE WORD OUT AND THAT OTHER PEOPLE SHARE OUR DREAMS OF BRINING WHISKY BACK TO THE DRINKERS.

WHISKY WEDNESDAY

NO NONSENSE WHISKY

HOW IT WORKS

NO.01 – SELECTION

Each fortnight we choose a pair of interesting bottles of whisky. These are typically bottles which are great for drinking but are now out of the price range of many casual drinkers.

NO.02 – SEPARATION

We send the bottles to be separated into drams. Each bottle makes around 23 drams of whisky, which are individually packaged along with a short information card about that bottle.

NO.03 – RELEASE

The drams from two bottles, each with a unique CBTD Ref are released for sale each fortnight. You can sign up to our mailing list to get access to the drams 24 hours before they’re released on general sale.

NO.04 – DELIVERED TO YOU

Choose and pay for your dram, then it is packed, checked and posted to you. Sign for your parcel enjoy your whisky. Peruse the info card and look forward to the next release.
