To the beat of the drums and the singing of the shamans, commence the Voodoo ceremony. With Batch 2 of its magnificent Whisky of Voodoo, it has come to charm, intrigue, and provoke you!
Whisky of Voodoo is a line of limited-edition Single Malt and Single Grain Whiskies. These carefully selected whiskies are aged and finished using the finest casks, frequently obtained from remote and exotic locations. Every year our annual reunion of Brave New Spirits Committee meets and carefully selects which casks from which Scotland’s distillery to batch and bottle.
A range of delectable drams is created to lure and fascinate its tribe! Casting flavour spells and incantation. With each drop, from casks and distilleries handpicked by a select few, the Whisky of Voodoo conjures magic and mystery.
