Taisteal Whisky

Exploring the old world through new eyes

Scotland is renowned the world over for its reputation as the source of the finest whiskies in the world, yet its popularity and depth may leave a new consumer lost as to where to begin their exploration of this age-old tradition. Our distilleries sit in the picturesque highlands of Scotland, abundant with pure mountain water which continue to sustain them.

Taisteal pleases palates with authentic Scotch whiskies, daring and rewarding the bold who seek to challenge the status quo. Our Explorer’s range features the Explorer’s Malt – Single Malt Scotch Whisky from Loch Lomond and the Explorer’s Grain and Blend from Angus Dundee.
