From the finest single malt whiskies from Scotland to the great Cognacs of France, the spirits section of our Club Cellar is rich and rare. The critical inspection of Cognac is of similar antiquity to that of wine—a product of the 18th century. But when, in the later 19th century, Scotch whisky displaced brandy as the British gentleman’s preferred spirit, it tended to be taken with ice and soda and nobody thought of nosing it appreciatively. Only with the rise of malt whiskies another 100 years later did significant numbers of people think the flavours of a Scotch might be worthy of the attention of the connoisseur—and whisky has never looked back. Here are some of the great single malt whiskies and Cognacs, which you can taste with pleasure at exclusive Club prices—or give as a gift to your favourite man.
