The Whisky Magazine – 17 issues for only £67.99. This magazine has the world on Whisky in it’s pages. ( the cost of subscription outside the UK may be dearer )

Books on Whisky include – Le Snob Whisky by John Lamond – 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die by Ian Buxton – Malt Whisky Yearbook 2012, The Whisky Boys always uses this publication for research and information.

The Glencairn Glass – recognised by the worlds Whisky industry as the best glass to use when tasting that special dram, available on line (check out and in most Whisky shops and at many distilleries. The only glass The Whisky Boys would consider using at all of our tastings.

A special Whisky Tasting evening hosted by Jim and Nicola, please get in touch for prices and the various types of tastings on offer.


Every distillery and every Whisky shop will have wide ranges of gifts and if you click on our link Single Malts Direct on our home page you can see that they have a large range of gifts, from books to coasters, glasses certainly well worth a look.
