The cask strength whiskies have been drawn from seven ex-Sherry casks, filled between 1995 and 2004 and bottled without artificial colouring. Charlie Whitfield, manager of brand education and prestige whiskies at Macallan, said the range had been inspired by the ‘whisky maker’s bench’ found in the single malt’s sample room. ‘This stunning new range, bottled at cask strength, presents those particular cask samples which have taken our whisky makers by surprise,’ he added.
The seven Justices at the Supreme Court unanimously rejected an appeal by the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA), ruling that the measure does not breach EU law and is a ‘proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim’. Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) would make it illegal to sell alcohol below a fixed price per unit – currently proposed at 50p. That would mean that a standard 70cl bottle of 40% abv Scotch whisky would have to cost at least £14.
The £982,000 award from the government’s Food Processing, Marketing and Co-operation (FPMC) grant scheme will help pay for construction of the new £12m Ardgowan distillery and visitor centre. Building work is now due to begin in 2018, with the Lowland distillery scheduled to be completed by 2020.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
