With its unique distilling location of the Himalayan foothills, Rampur Select Indian Single Malt is exposed to polar opposite climate conditions throughout the year, allowing this whisky to mature significantly more quickly than other whiskies, such as Scotch and Irish Whiskey.

This super-premium malt whisky is distilled in traditional copper pot stills, matured at Rampur Distillery - India's largest and oldest distillery- dating back to 1943. Rampur Indian Single Malt Whisky is smooth, with a mellow taste with a long-lasting finish. It is distinctively malty, with creamy vanilla taste with hints of apricot, apple and sweet and wine-like finish.

Cotswolds Single Malt

The award-winning Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky was launched in October 2017 and is the first whisky ever to be distilled in the Cotswolds. Keeping it local the distillery uses 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley and matures the whisky in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and reconditioned red wine casks.

This English whisky is rich, fruity and sippable with notes of honey, Seville orange marmalade and dark red fruits. For a personal edge, each bottle lists the barley variety, harvest year and local Cotswolds farm it was grown on.

Price: £44.95 for a 70cl bottle.

ABV: 46%

J&B Rare

If you are looking for something a little lighter than single malts, then grab a bottle of J&B Rare. J&B Rare has been distilled, blended and bottled in Scotland since the 1930s, and is a blend of 42 malt and grain whiskies.

The heart of J&B Rare is formed from the finest Speyside malts including Knockando, Glen Spey, Auchriosk and Strathmill. The blend is returned to the cask for a further three years' maturation which brings together the bold flavours of the single malts with the lighter grain whiskies adding fullness and depth to the blend.

J&B Rare is smooth with an elegant taste, fruity and aromatic on the nose and has a flavour that layers rich fruitiness and vanilla. Its lightness means it is the perfect addition to the cocktail cabinet.

Price: £22.50 for a 70cl bottle

ABV: 40%
