Recently launched Time & Place is being led by its nose, taste and a sense of curiosity and adventure in a quest to find the finest examples of whisky, rum, bourbon, cognac, armagnac, tequila, mezcal, pisco and any other premium spirt that the world has to offer.
Its owner Darran Edmond, an experienced distiller from Glasgow, explains: “While we respect the work of every craftsman involved in the distilling process, we also believe that the world’s best spirits are not just made in distilleries.
“They are made in the fields and streams that the raw materials are sourced from, the forests the wood from the cask is taken from and within the walls of the cask itself over long periods of time.”
Time & Place is offering Scotsman readers the chance to win a bottle of 2008 Carron Speyside single malt Scotch whisky, which has been aged for 13 years and finished in an Oloroso sherry cask. That only leaves another 249 bottles available to buy!
Also available is the 2010 Port of Spain, Trinidad single cask Caribbean rum, which has been aged for 12 years in American Oak. Only 216 bottles will be released.
According to Darran, amazing spirits are there to be poured and enjoyed, not left unopened on a shelf and treated as an investment. So he is trading in ‘liquid postcards’, gathered from different regions across the globe.
He adds: “Through travelling, I have realised there is a whole world of amazing spirits to try. While Scotland has some of the best, we don’t want to restrict ourselves to one country or region.
“If it tastes good and we can buy a cask, we are interested in bottling it. What defines a spirit is the time and place where it was distilled – and that makes every one unique.”
