Another exquisite blend from Compass Box that gets us real excited.

The year was 2000 when John Glaser started the Compass Box Whisky Company in his kitchen, actually. An American in the UK, he used to work for a large distiller before he thought, why not do Scotch Whisky differently and bring back the old model of the Scotch Whisky blending house. So, he committed himself to blending boutique Scotch Whiskies. But how did they go from kitchen to Blending Room in London with more than a dozen of employees, you ask? Not by compromising any quality, that's for sure. Sourcing only the best oak from the Vosges in France and the woods of Missouri, making your own custom casks and seeking only the best casks from the very best distilleries oughta do it. Oh, and unlike mass produced Whiskies, they are careful not to overdo it on the number of components in their blends.

We were so excited when we heard about the recent Compass Box Whisky. Compass Box Orchard House Scotch Whisky is an all-malt that includes some of the fruitiest Whiskies of Scotland and it was designed by lead Whiskymaker James Saxon in 2021. Like, we knew this blend must be exquisite and we weren’t wrong. It’s fragrant, it’s lively, and it’s packed with malty and ginger flavors that are rounded up by strawberries, honey, and vanilla shortbread. The natural soft yellow color shines through the bottle, adorned with a quirky label that brings any home bar to the next level.

PS: Don't be afraid to pair it with a pale ale or a pilsner.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
