In a world where water holds so much importance, being a single source of life, you’d want to make sure what you’re drinking is pure, smooth, and rich with a clear finish.
The same goes for whisky, which is also referred to by the Scots as “water of life.”
Many whisky drinkers will argue over “neat or branch?” for hours. But the science checks out – adding a dash of mineral water to your whisky will awaken a wider, deeper and richer palate of aromas.
Think of your scotch as a serious gentleman who likes to keep to his brooding self. A splash in the pool creates a mixture of openness and ease, making him more sociable and delightful to get along with.
But a common inflatable pool won’t do, you’d only find him in a luxurious jacuzzi, soaking in the serenity.
As the saying goes, “quality over quantity.”
Uisge Source bottles spring waters from private sources either close to, or from distilleries in the whisky regions of Scotland.
The chemistry of Uisge Source waters matches the chemistry of the waters used in whisky distillation in each region to make the ideal complementary drop for your dram:
- Hard, mineral-rich spring water from the Highlands.
- Soft, low-mineral spring water from Speyside.
- Earthy, naturally acidic spring water from from Ardilistry Spring.
Five years on, their bottled spring waters are available in more than 20 countries.
In conjunction with National Scotch Day, we launched four gift sets with Uisge Source bottles, coupled with only the best scotch pairings for your tasting pleasure.
The Chivas Mizurana Gift Set includes a marriage of Scottish craft and Japanese tradition in liquid gold, along with a set of all three variations that Uisge has to offer for your experimental needs.
The Aberlour 12 Years Double Cask Gift Set offers its single malt, in a golden amber and ruby colour as a fine pairing with Uisge’s Speyside Whisky Water. It’s soft and low-mineral spring water is designed to accompany the rich and citrus character of the 12 year.
The Royal Salute 21 Malts Blend Gift Set is for those who prefer the extravagance and luxury that life has to offer in a glencairn glass. Along with your selection of all three Uisge bottles, it comes with a wooden handcrafted display from the stave of an ex-whisky cask.
The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve Gift Set features the creamy, pale gold, Speyside malt which will inevitably go perfectly with the Uisge’s Speyside Whisky Water. This combination gives you a creamy sweetness that mingles harmoniously with the delicate flavours and complex fruity tones already present in the whisky.
