Best whisky deals: great October whisky offers too good to ignore
03 October 2021

Whether you consider yourself to be a whisky connoisseur who collects the finest bottles or you're simply appreciative of a delectable dram, the smooth spirit has long been a British staple. Considered by some to be the ultimate hobby - one that tends to conjure images of smoking jackets and dark panelled rooms, the complex flavours of a fine bottle ensure it takes pride of place in any drinks cabinet.

Despite the undeniable highlights of the golden liquor, quality whisky usually can often end up costing a small fortune. No need to worry though, for ShortList are one step ahead, collating the ultimate list of deals currently on offer across the internet.

UPDATE: We've trawled the depths of the deals chest this week and discovered a host of sublime offers from some top distillers. In particular, there are massive savings to be had on premium whiskey brands. Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select caught our eye, with a massive 27% off its regular price. A whiskey deemed so special only 1 in 100 barrels is considered good enough to make the Single Barrel cut, be sure to snap up this bottle while you can. However, if that's not quite your bag, be sure to check out this deal on Johnny Walker Double Black Label Whisky, now with an impressive 30% off. Decidedly tempting, isn't it?
