There are a couple of things I like to think I know a little bit about, one is generally “stuff” about Ramsbottom, the other is whisky, I’m no buff, but I know what I like.
Well, I was a little surprised when I found out that not only does The Fisherman’s Retreat (in Ramsbottom, thing 1) create their own whisky (thing 2), but they’ve just released their fourth and fifth editions. Granted, I knew that they’re big on whisky, but I didn’t realise they actually had their own.
Now it might seem hard to believe, but The Fisherman’s Retreat is now in its 27th year and they now stock over 500 different Scottish single malt whiskies. Not only that but they recently launched their online shop which showcases some of their more fine and rare whiskies. This is some way from where they started back in 1992 when an overheard fisherman’s chat about where to go for lunch helped start it all.[Read more…] about Did you know that the Fisherman’s Retreat have their own whisky?
