Ben Nevis 26 Year Old 1996 (Cask 854) – Nickolls & Perks Inaugural Casks
One of three casks of exceptional Scotch whisky, bottled to launch our independent bottling range. These rare bottlings mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Nickolls & Perks, presenting fine casks of spirits specially selected by our team of specialists.

Founded in 1825, for nearly two centuries the Ben Nevis distillery has produced quality whisky with a unique profile. The robust nature of the whisky makes it the perfect ingredient for fine blends, resulting in little of the whisky manifesting as a single malt. This venerable expression is a true rarity.

Few vintages are discussed in whisky the way 1996 is revered for fans of Ben Nevis; casks from this vintage consistently present an oily fruitiness that few distilleries can match. This rare offering is one of the few 1996 vintages remaining, matured for a remarkable 26 full years in a refill hogshead, allowing the natural oils and re-esterification of the spirit to shine boldly. Only 148 bottles.

Bruichladdich 18 Year Old 2005 (Cask 518) – Nickolls & Perks Inaugural Casks
One of three casks of exceptional Scotch whisky, bottled to launch our independent bottling range. These rare bottlings mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Nickolls & Perks, presenting fine casks of spirits specially selected by our team of specialists.

Built in the Victorian era, the close of the 20th century saw the Bruichladdich distillery mothballed. New ownership led to a greatly anticipated reopening at the turn of the millennium. This whisky was produced just a few years into the distillery’s reopening, presenting an effervescence of character foretelling of Bruichladdich’s meteoric success.

Distilled in 2005, this single cask offering was matured in a single first-fill ex-bourbon cask for a full 18 years before being presented here in its entirety. Bottled at the natural cask strength of 54.7% ABV without artificial colouring or chill-filtration, with only 195 bottles produced.

Springbank 25 Year Old 1997 (Cask 242) – Nickolls & Perks Inaugural Casks
One of three casks of exceptional Scotch whisky, bottled to launch our independent bottling range. These rare bottlings mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Nickolls & Perks, presenting fine casks of spirits specially selected by our team of specialists.

Springbank is one of the few surviving distilleries from the golden age of Campbeltown, the region that was once the capital of Scotch whisky production. It is arguably the most traditional distillery in all of Scotland, continuing to operate in the labour-intensive ways of old to produce a truly authentic Scotch.

A 1997 distillation, this rare expression was matured entirely in a single fresh rum barrel, where it lay for a full 25 years in the warehouses of Campbeltown to harness the full essence of its provenance. Through this remarkably long maturation, the whisky has dropped to a natural strength of 49.1% ABV, with the cask returning just 105 bottles, all presented with natural colour and without chill-filtration.
