Launching this weekend, London’s original whisky specialist Milroy’s is offering whisky lovers across the UK unprecedented access to their unmatched selection of the world’s best whiskies with their Drams-to-your-Door delivery service.
Also launching will be ‘Tastings at Home’, offering one of six curated whisky tastings for all levels accompanied by an exclusive live virtual tasting from one of Milroy’s’ whisky experts, as well as personalised virtual consultations.
The team have used their vast knowledge to put together 20 flights, with prices ranging from £15 to £130, for everyone from beginners to old hands. Each flight will contain three drams and categories will include Highlands, Lowlands, Speyside, Islands, Islay and Campbeltown alongside Irish, American and World whiskies, in both introductory and premium pairings.
Also available will be three ultra-premium selections of five drams each. Bourbon drinkers can delight in The Pappy Flight (£70), offering the 10, 12, 15, 20 and 23 year-old expressions of the acclaimed Pappy Van Winkle as well as The Four Roses Special Releases Flight (£130), including small batches from 2014-2019.
The Rising Sun Flight (£60) will offer a curated selection of the team’s finest Japanese whiskies, such as Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve and 12 Year Old, The Nikka 12 Year Old and both the Original and Rum Cask Finished-Nikka Yoichi.
World-renowned for their in-store tastings, the Milroy’s team have also put together six exclusive ‘Tastings at Home’ packages, accompanied by a personalised virtual tasting via zoom.
Online tasting sessions last approximately 1 hour, during which you’ll be guided through five of the finest and most interesting whiskies sourced from their specialist shop. Whether you’re new to whisky or a devoted enthusiast, customers will have the time to ask all their burning questions about the world of whisky, while challenging your palate to a unique taste experience.
Customers can choose from:
- Showcasing the varied taste profiles and styles of production from Speyside to Islay and everything in between.
Around the world
- Whisk(e)y is now produced worldwide. This tasting is more adventurous, sampling wares from India, Australia, Taiwan, Japan and many other countries. NB: Around the World tasting is not available above a Premium level at this time.
American & Grain
- Leading you through the journey of Bourbon, Rye and the newer styles such as Millet whiskey. American whiskey has enjoyed astounding success in recent times due to the quality of products on the market. Let us show you why!
Each category is available in both Introduction (£35 per person, retail price up to £50) and Premium (£60 per person, retail price up to £100). Packages can be purchased on the Milroy’s website for contactless delivery, and the team will follow up either by email or over the phone to book your preferred time slot.
