One of my favourite bottlers is Chapter 7 Whisky. I've been working with their founder, Selim Evin, since the very start of TopWhiskies.com. So I was glad to sit down with him, share a dram, and learn more about his journey into whisky. Thanks for joining us, Selim. How did you get into whisky? My first distillery visit was an amazing experience. I was 16, and my grandfather took me on a trip across Scotland, visiting many distilleries over ten days. That trip left quite a mark on me and a real appreciation for whisky and its rich heritage. It was the spark that led me to become an ..read more

These are: oak casks, time, and p ..read more
