INVER ASSOCIATES LTD.
In conjunction with our sister company, Inver Associated Ltd. - Spirit of the Glen publications have created a range of whiskies to compliment the books we have written.
North Coast 700 Whisky Route
For this book, we have commissioned a Highland Single malt called Slainte. ( “ cheers “ in English ). These come in 5 cl, 20cl and 70 cl bottles with a range of personalised tartan banners which can be added to the bottle.
Speyside Whisky Trail
For this Speyside whisky route we have commissioned an unique Single Speyside malt with a Sherry finish. Historically all malt whisky was matured in sherry casks but when Spanish law declared that all sherry must be bottled in Spain – there was a shortage of casks in the UK.
American casks which are only permitted to be used once by American law then became the preference, due to their lower cost.
However, the whisky industry and knowledgeable whisky connoisseurs believe that sherry casks are best.
It is, of course, a personal preference !
We have therefore created a Slainte Sherry finish single Speyside malt for your whisky enjoyment.

Scotch Whisky regions
The most densely populated Whisky region in the world, famous for fertile glens and, of course, the River Spey. Speyside whiskies are known for being frugal with peat and full of fruit. Apple, pear, honey, vanilla and spice all have a part a role in expressions from this region, which are commonly matured in Sherry casks.
Soft and smooth malts are characteristic of this region, offering a gentle, elegant palate reminiscent of grass, honeysuckle, cream, ginger, toffee, toast and cinnamon. The whiskies are often lighter in character and perfect for pre-dinner drinks.
This region, which also takes in the islands, has a huge diversity of flavours and characters. From lighter whiskies all the way through salty coastal malts, the Highlands offers a Scotch for all palates.
Campbeltown whiskies are varied and full of flavour. Hints of salt, smoke, fruit, vanilla and toffee mingle in whiskies of robust and rich character.
Islay (pronounced ‘eye-luh’) is a magical island where the majority of its population are involved in whisky production. Famous for fiery, heavily peated whiskies.
