Glenlivet & Bruichladdich Dramfool Miniatures x 2

Founded in 2015, Dramfool is a small independent bottling label created by Bruce Farquhar. Many of these releases have received high praise, and the collection features some interesting distilleries.

Bruichladdich 9 Year Old 

Matured in sherry cask #507 for 9 years and 354 days.Founded in 2015, 

Like its island neighbour Bunnahabhain distillery, Bruichladdich has traditionally been an un-peated single malt, mostly owing to its requirements by the blenders who owned it. The last of these was Whyte & Mackay, who eventually shut it down in 1995, deeming it surplus to requirements. They sold the distillery to Murray McDavid in 2001, who launched the peated Port Charlotte and heavily-peated Octomore single malts in 2006 and 2008. A recommissioned Lomond still also now produces the popular Botanist gin there.

Elderly Elvis Tilting 25 Year Old 

This undisclosed Speyside single malt is titled, Elderly Elvis Tilting, which is an anagram of "Glenlivet distillery" was bottled for the region's Spirit of Speyside whisky festival in 2019. One of 109 bottles drawn from a bourbon barrel.

Well-known as the oldest licensed distillery in Scotland, for many years ‘Glenlivet’ was a byword for quality, with many single malts using the Glenlivet suffix in an attempt to reap the benefits of associating themselves with the Banffshire distillery. Indeed, owners Pernod-Ricard now put a heavy focus on the brand being ‘The Glenlivet’, encouraging their consumers not to accept any imitations. Glenlivet is in a long-running battle with Glenfiddich for the title of best-selling single malt, with both now selling over a million cases a year. George Smith secured a license to legally distil at Glenlivet in 1824, and it remained family-run until 1978 when Seagram bought a controlling stake in what had by then become The Glenlivet Distilleries Ltd, and counting assets such as Glen Grant, Benriach and Longmorn among its portfolio. When Seagram collapsed in 2001, Pernod-Ricard acquired its sizeable Chivas Brothers Scotch whisky division, with Glenlivet the crown jewel in an empire rivalled only by Diageo.

No exact bottle size is stated, we believe them to be 5cl.
