That Boutique-y Whisky Company
That Boutique-y Whisky Company (TBWC) is an independent bottler of whisky, and their main role is to select and release whiskies from a variety of distilleries under their own distinctive brand. They select unique and interesting casks of whisky from both renowned and lesser-known distilleries, from Scotland and abroad. Once a cask has been selected, the whisky is bottled in its natural colour without undergoing chill-filtration to ensure that the original character of the whisky is retained.
One of the standout features of TBWC is its branding. Each bottle boasts a distinctive label, often decorated with whimsical and intricate illustrations. These designs sometimes offer insights or commentaries about the distillery from which the whisky originates or about the whisky itself. Moreover, many of the whiskies they release are limited editions, making them particularly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
Another notable aspect of TBWC is its transparency. While they might not always disclose the exact distillery (and this is the case with out October '23 dram) due to industry regulations or specific agreements, they tend to provide a wealth of detailed information about the whisky. This can include its age, the type of cask used, and other relevant details. By doing so, TBWC offers whisky enthusiasts the opportunity to experience rare or unique expressions from various distilleries under a single, recognisable brand.
This month's whisky distillery is a secret and hopefully will provide some fun in the form of a guessing game. There are some 50 distilleries in Speyside - which one do you think this one is from? We might have left some clues...
