The Rare Malt Whisky Company

If you are interested in expensive bottles of Islay whisky, then you will find information about a number of Scottish whiskies on The Rare Malt Whisky company website.

The Rare Malt Whisky Company may be a small, Scottish business, however, the business sources and sells some of Scotland’s rarest malts. This small business has customers from across the globe, yet they are based in the Scottish countryside just outside the humble, yet stunning,  village of Killearn.

We asked Lesley about the types of bottles that The Rare Malt Whisky company sells “we specialise in excellence – we only stock rare malt whiskies of the highest quality. Every single bottle we present to you will be in some way significant: for example, it may be a single cask edition or a one-time release bottling. We strive to source only the top Scottish malts, especially the unusual and extraordinary. Rum and port matured whiskies are just some of the unusual bottles we have available”.
