Canadian Club Blended Whisky
£18.75
Canadian Club got its cool back when Don Draper in Mad Men had it as his slurp of choice and since then, it hasn’t lost it. Taste wise, it’s smooth with a hint of spice and there’s a nice oaky finish to it, too. Personally we’d have it as part of a mixer - but it’s just as good neat.

Bowmore No.1 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
£28.26
This bottle of Bowmore may not have made it to our list of the best whiskies, but you can’t argue with a single malt that costs just pennies over £20 for a full 70cl. Bowmore says No.1 offers citrus, honeycomb and coconut on the tongue, and there’s a bourbon finish thanks to the use of ex-bourbon casks in its maturation. This whisky won a silver gong at the IWSC 2017 awards.
