  • Elements of Islay

    The Elements of Islay is a unique series of small batch and single cask whiskies that pay homage to the famous Scottish region of Islay. This series is produced by Specialty Drinks, an independent bottler based in London, known for their careful selection of exceptional spirits.

    The whiskies in the Elements of Islay series are not branded by the distillery name but by a coded system representing each distillery, such as "Lg" for Lagavulin or "Ar" for Ardbeg, followed by a number indicating the specific release. This innovative approach allows the focus to be on the individual character of the whisky and the unique influence of Islay's elemental terroir, rather than the reputation or style of individual distilleries.

    These whiskies are renowned for their depth, complexity, and intensity of flavor, embodying the distinctive peatiness and maritime influence that Islay whiskies are famous for. Bottled at natural cask strength without chill filtration or added coloring, each release offers a pure and unadulterated taste of Islay.

    The bottlings are typically limited, making them highly sought after by collectors and whisky enthusiasts. The packaging of the Elements of Islay series reflects the theme of the elements: the whisky is bottled in laboratory-style flasks, and the box features coding in the style of the periodic table. This scientific aesthetic aligns with the brand's ethos of exploration and discovery, inviting you to delve into the elemental heart of Islay.

    Whether you are a seasoned Islay aficionado or new to the region, the Elements of Islay offer a unique and immersive journey into the heart of this iconic whisky region, one dram at a time.
