The 20cl bottle of Harvey Nichols x Port Dundas Distillery 17 Year Old represents a rare and ever-diminishing opportunity to taste the exquisite grain whisky produced at one of Scotland’s ghost distilleries. Once upon a time, Glasgow’s Port Dundas was the largest distillery in the country. Established in 1811, it provided grain components for Johnnie Walker, J&B, Bell’s, Haig and many more. It grew and grew, absorbing neighbouring distilleries. However, Diageo decided to concentrate grain whisky production at Cameronbridge and North British Distillery, so Port Dundas was closed in 2010. The landmark was demolished in 2011, making this bottling something that can never be repeated. It was bottled exclusively for us by the experts at Douglas Laing & Co. and opens with smoked meats, before developing peat, charred oak and subtle warming spice notes. We love the brown sugar and vanilla cream combo, reminiscent of crème brûlée, and the touch of soft stone fruits and stewed apples that remind us of making pies and crumbles during the colder months. Mature Port Dundas is always an intriguing prospect not to be missed.

The two beers are made in partnership with the legendary Derbyshire brewery, Thornbridge. The first is a Pale Ale brewed at a weekday-friendly 3.8% using Crystal, Mosaic, Chinook and Citra hops. We love the complexity that hop combo provides. Crystal serves up woody spices and wildflower meadow notes, Mosaic adds blueberry into the mix, Chinook brings pine to the party, and Citra empties a truckload of citrus fruit right onto the palate. The second beer is a Session IPA that has been expertly crafted to dispense that classic wallop of India Pale Ale flavour, but at a more modest alcohol level and without the gluten. It’s a smashable classic brewed with an array of New World hops – Ella, Citra, Nelson Sauvin and Amarillo. Weighing in at a very quaffable 4.5% and delivering a punch of passionfruit, pineapple, papaya tangerine, mango, kiwi and grapefruit, this IPA has a big personality. Maris Otter and Munich Crystal malts provide chewiness and honeyed richness, all with less than 20ppm of gluten. Lip-smacking deliciousness in inimitable Harvey Nichols style.

Riedel is the world’s foremost glass specialist. Their Rocks Glass has been specifically created for serving spirits over ice. Designed to be slightly larger for holding sizable ice cubes (like the 5.5cm diameter ones popped out of Vin Bouquet’s Silicone Ice Ball Mould), it feels wonderful in the hand – the perfect balance of reassuring weight and yet thin glass at the mouth. Another brilliant feature is that the level where the rib design on the glass flares out at the bottom marks an accurate 60ml (or double) pour, making it efficient to fill without a measure. No spirit drinker should be without a pair.
