    Thanksgiving night, 10 p.m., Edinburgh, Scotland. I'm sitting in front of my laptop, fingers at the ready. The countdown on the Whisky Foundation website, displayed on the screen in front of me, ticks towards zero. Normally, these guys just sell bottles of rare and expensive whisky online. This time is different.

    The truth is that the whisky industry has had its ‘Fringe’ for a very long time, in the form of independent bottlers, the real pioneers of this new movement in the whisky industry. After a distillery distills the whisky, independent bottlers head on in and buy up a few casks of the newly created spirit. After this, they sit and brainstorm, and try to think of the best ways to mature and handle the whisky, to bring it to its fullest potential.

    If you consider yourself a whisky enthusiast, you shouldn’t ignore independently bottled whisky. Independently bottled whisky present an opportunity to try unique expressions sourced from your favourite distilleries. A lot of thought goes into the cask selection process yet even with years of experience the results can be anything but predictable. This dramatic and often unpredictable effect that ageing whisky in wood has, is one of the things I love about whisky. It is comforting to know that no matter where the whisky was distilled, I can always be surprised.
