Falling out of this month's whisky magazine is a flyer offering me the chance to buy a barrel of newly distilled Bruichladdich. As a big fan of the Laddie, I'm very tempted.
Now, I understand all the add-on clauses about insurance, tax and all and I also understand that, should I go ahead, once I've decided to bottle, I'm going to have a fair number of cases.
Obviously, a mammoth private supply of Bruichladdich is a heavenly thought. But... should I want to part with any bottles, what are the regulations about selling them? What sort of license would I have to buy, or would I only be able to give them as gifts?
Can anyone help?
