Malt of the Month | June 2019

Kilchoman STR Cask Matured Limited Edition £89.50 It’s no secret that I follow releases from this most modern thinking of distilleries KIlchoman. Since 2005 they have made waves from their quiet corner of Islay in the whisky world with some incredible offerings. Their latest limited edition is the ‘STR’ meaning Shaving, Toasting and Re-Charring. 43 […]

Well after one of the best summers I can remember, the glorious weather even reached beyond the border into Scotland. It seemed rather strange visiting Whisky distilleries in shorts and a tee shirt! This trip I managed to venture over to the Orkneys for a few days, and first stop had to be Highland Park […]

“Freedom!” cheer the children, while parents and grandparents everywhere lovingly look towards six weeks of wonderful sunshine filled days… Of course I am delighted at the prospect of not having to drag my daughter out of bed for a good few weeks and squeeze in some quality time, but my head isn’t completely in the […]

I often look back to my school days and think “if someone had told me then that working in wine is all science and geography I would have probably paid a lot more attention!” Therefore, these days, I like to make it my mission to spread the word that there is so much more to […]

There’s nothing like the opportunity to flex our vinous muscles with a stonking issue of our Summer Grapevine. We’ve been inundated with new wines over the last few months and have narrowed down quite a wide field of hopefuls into a few handfuls of delight. Zippy whites, crunchy reds and lots more besides have exceeded […]

demand for whisky has never been stronger and it must be a nightmare making predictions on demand a decade or so in advance. Well, what a busy festive period that was for all of us at Hennings with whisky flying off the shelves to keep the winter blues at bay. Now the quieter months are […]

descends into the arrival of Father Christmas and my desire to read on is severely tested. “Here it is, that time of year, the snow is falling there’s lots of cheer…” so begins my son’s favourite bedtime book at the moment. I don’t mind this opening but then it descends into the arrival of Father […]

Known as the ‘Maritime Malt’, Old Pulteney is distilled in Wick at the most northern mainland distillery in the UK. Being a coastal distillery you really do get a hint of ‘saltiness’ in the malts produced here. I’ve only visited Wick once, while on the last leg of cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats […]

heartier wines and a few treats for a mid-week gloomy evening pick-me-up. Summer came in the end then, although I suppose that might depend upon your geographical location. We love the autumn at Hennings. Not only are we lucky enough to be based in a part of the country that showcases the seasonal transformation so […]
