Multi-award-winning independent bottler That Boutique-y Whisky Company (TBWC) proudly announces their sponsorship of the UK’s seven-time Tiddlywinks World Singles Champion Dr. Patrick Barrie with the release of a 24 year old Single Grain Scotch Whisky.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company have released their first batch from the internationally renowned Cameronbridge Grain Distillery, a ‘squopping’ 24 Year Old Single Grain Scotch Whisky (RRP £64.95). TBWC is also proud to announce the exciting sponsorship of seven-time Tiddlywinks World Singles Champion, Dr. Patrick Barrie, who will be competing at the National Singles Competition at Downing College Cambridge this month in his bid to represent the United Kingdom in the next World Championship.
The World Singles is the game’s highest accolade”, he explains, “it’s played on a challenge basis where a player must become the National Singles champion in order to challenge the current World Singles champion to an official match.
While the exact origins of tiddlywinks are vague, the modern competitive version started in 1955. It may not be the most fashionable of sports, but it’s got a great mix of manual dexterity, strategy and tactics. I think that the image of tiddlywinks is set to change thanks to That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s sponsorship with their release from the Cameronbridge Grain Distillery, a distillery with nearly 200 years of history behind it.
– Dr. Barrie: Lecturer in Chemical Engineering – Cambridge University & playing tiddlywinks competitively since 1984!
Known for their fun graphic-novel style labels, as well as their award-winning whiskies, TBWC’s latest release features the seven-time champion in action at the World Tiddlywinks Final. There’s a respectful hush from the spectators as Patrick, squidger in hand, and carefully concentrating, lines up his second shot following the successful potting of his last wink.
TBWC’s Cameronbridge 24 Year Old is a limited release of just 211 bottles. A soft and gentle single grain, with notes of icing sugar, runny honey and rich golden syrup on the nose, while waves of vanilla, fresh pencil shavings and a gentle peppery spiciness come across on the palate.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s range of whiskies is available from fine retailers including Master of Malt, Amazon, Majestic Wine, Hedonism Wines, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
