  • Tomintoul Collaborates with Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club

    We are delighted to work with the world famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club to create a very special whisky to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of this legendary club. 

    At a special launch event Tomintoul Brand Ambassador Iain Forteath held a deconstructed tasting to show how the whisky was created, and the influence that Tomintoul, our gentle dram, had in the final product. The whisky itself was created together with the legendary band The Ronnie Scott's Allstars who worked closely with Iain on the blend. 

    Talking about the scotch Iain Forteath said "the Bourbon casks used by Tomintoul give a creamy and sweet base to Ronnie's Scotch, and the sherry matured adds the sweet dried fruit layers. We also added a touch of heavily peated Tomintoul to give a subtle smoky backbone to the blend".

    This very limited edition bottling can only be bought directly from Ronnie Scott's Club - please follow the link for more info
