SCALLYWAG

Speyside malt scotch whisky

Scallywag is a small batch bottling created using only the finest Speyside Malts including, amongst others, spirit distilled at Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes Distilleries. Bottled at 46% alcohol strength and proudly non chill-filtered, Scallywag embodies all that is Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky - beautifully sherried, richly spiced and truly charming. Spanish sherry butts care for this spirit as it matures, naturally imparting the distinctly dark, rich colour. Inspired by a long line of Douglas Laing family Fox Terriers, the Scallywag name and endearing canine character are most fitting for this richly spiced and deliciously sweet Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky.

Speyside Whisky

The Speyside region is home to over half of Scotland’s Malt Whisky distilleries, more than Islay, the Highlands, the Lowlands and Campbeltown combined. Its rich, wet landscape creates a ripe environment for distilling and maturing Whisky, and Malt Whiskies produced in the Speyside region are typically sweet, sherried and elegant in character.

Scallywag Chocolate Edition

Sweet-toothed drammers will have a hard time keeping their paws off the Scallywag Chocolate Edition! Matured predominantly in Spanish Sherry butts, the resulting whisky is a mouth-watering combination of rich mocha, caramelised nuts and dark chocolate shavings.


This limited edition is created using only the finest of Speyside Malts including Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes. Bottled at 48% ABV, only 300 bottles of this truly exceptional dram are available.

Scallywag Manhattan

Mix 25ml Scallywag Speyside Malt with 15ml Sweet Vermouth to create a sweetly spiced Scallywag Manhattan.


1. Prepare your serving glass by filling it with ice, and fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.


2. Add Scallywag & Sweet Vermouth into the mixing glass and stir well until combined.


3. Discard the ice from the serving glass and strain your cocktail into the chilled glass.

Scallywag and Dark Chocolate

Try Scallywag with a chunk of good quality dark chocolate. Chew the chocolate, then sip your dram – you’ll find the deliciously sweet, winter spice notes of the liquid are complemented beautifully by the bitter chocolate.
