Here at The Scotch Whisky Experience, we are home to the world’s largest and most beautiful collection of Scotch whisky open to the public😍 To celebrate our incredible collection and it's history, we've decided that each week we highlight one of the bottles from the collection, revealing fascinating stories and facts for the first time🙌

So first up, we have the oldest bottle in the collection, which is this bottle of James Buchanan’s🥃 The archivist from the current brand owner, Diageo, has dated this bottle back to 1897-1900. This bottle is a particular favourite with our visitors, who love taking a snap of themselves in front of this bottle! So make sure you get one if you visit!

The Scottish Bee Company

This month on our 'Meet the Makers' series we are celebrating The Scottish Bee Company🍯 The Scottish Bee Company was founded in 2017 when founders Iain and Suzie Millar adopted some bees, hired a team of expert bee farmers and brought them together in the heather covered hills of Scotland to produce a uniquely flavourful selection of honeys that evoke a sense of Scotland's unspoiled wilderness🐝
