Highland Park Loki Single Malt Scotch Whisky Review

post icon

Loki, is the second bottling in Highland Park’s Valhalla series. This limited edition single malt scotch is named for Loki, the Norse God of mischief or fire or both. He may not even be a full God, his status has been debated for many years. He is also a shape-shifter, for all you True Blood fans.  What does this have to do with Whisky?

Booze For Charity

post icon

I was a spectator at the Macallan Ice Ball Plunge at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail when I was struck with an epiphany. The booze industry is even more philanthropic than I thought. Almost every person in the industry we know has donated time, booze, classes, swag and more. Even DOTW has gotten into the act, sponsoring the Martini Luge at the Silicon Valley Humane Society’s Fur Ball and donating multiple classes as fundraising … Read more

Highland Park Valhalla Collection – Thor – Review

post icon

This gem comes from one of our favorite Scotch houses – Highland Park.  Not only is Highland Park 18 one of the most perfect spirits that I have been fortunate enough to taste, the Edrington Group, which owns Highland Park is simply amazing.  Long a family enterprise, they fought off multiple hostile takeover attempts by Seagrams in the 1950’s, consolidated their holdings into the Edrington Group, which is owned by the Robertson Family Trust (the … Read more

Top Booze to Buy Your Boss

post icon

The holidays are upon us. We know that most of you are expected to buy your boss a present for Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. We think that booze is the perfect gift to buy, unless your boss is a recovering alcoholic and booze only makes things worse.

To impress your your boss, you need to pick a spirit that is cool, but not too trendy. You need a bottle that is expensive enough without being … Read more

Highland Park 18 Year Old Scotch Review

post icon

Highland Park Scotch is amazing and so is the story of the ownership of Highland Park (we only have so much space so we are focusing on Highland Park’s ownership). As many of you may know, a certain percentage of the Scots have never been happy about the unification of England and Scotland (Scotland finally became part of the United Kingdom when James VI of Scotland became James I of England upon the death of … Read more

Happy National Scotch Day!

post icon

Just in case you need an excuse to drink Scotch: Today is National Scotch Day. So drink a dram to celebrate! Scotch is a polarizing whisky … most people either love it or hate it. I fall into the “love it” camp.

The strong character of this whisky often makes it a challenge to mix, but when it’s done right, a Scotch cocktail can really blow your mind. Here are a few to try:

Happy Robert Burns Day! Today is the birthday of the Scottish poet who wrote “Auld Lang Syne” (among many other things), so why not celebrate with a scotch cocktail?

The Tippling Bros developed this cocktail for a Boozy Robert Burns Dinner this weekend in New York City, and along with the folks at Highland Park, were kind enough to share it. Read some Robert Burns poems, mix this concoction and celebrate Scotland’s national poet and … Read more
