Speaking broadly, back in 2011 Joshua and Jason started the independent bottling company, Single Cask Nation. Unable to leave well enough alone, the duo also launched a tour company called WhiskyGeek Tours. One year later, the duo launched a whisky festival called Whisky Jewbilee across three cities: New York, Chicago, and Seattle. In 2017 they launched One Nation Under Whisky podcast: THE industry insider’s podcast. Though Whisky Jewbilee is currently mothballed the One Nation Under Whisky podcast has entered its 8th season in February 2024.

Single Cask Nation bottles around 85 casks of whisky per year for the US, UK, EU, Japan, and Israeli markets. In the US SCN boasts a “Retail Range”  and then, separately, an “Online Exclusive” Range which is wholly separate from the retail range.

Single Cask Nation bottles primarily Single Malt Scotch Whisky but dabbles quite a lot in Irish whisky, American whisky (Bourbon, Rye, and Single Malt), Indian whisky, English whisky, Welsh whisky, rums, and mezcals. Single Casks are available as exclusives to retail partners and some clubs.

In 2024 Single Cask Nation joined the Artisanal Spirits Company family of brands which also include Scotch Malt Whisky Society and J.G. Thomson. In addition to this, Single Cask Nation was awarded the prestigious “Icons of Whisky Independent Bottler of the Year” award for 2024.

Our exciting new look and perspective was launched in 2022 in the UK, EU, and Japan. It has now made its way here to the US.

The Nation will enjoy a fresh and enticing new bottle, closure, and label design that showcase the beauty that can be found in each drop of liquid. We’ve left the cartons behind with the environment in mind and replaced our corks with the easy open and close features of the new cap.

Our logo sits prominently featured above the wrap-around label creating a nice focal point on any bar.  A refreshed color scheme on our labels has been introduced to help differentiate Scottish regions as well as spirit styles. Of course, Single Cask Nation’s famous “Flavometer™” remains so you’ll know exactly what to expect to find once you decide to crack this beautiful new bottle open.

2010 10 yo Diamond Guayana Rum

The “MPM” on the label stands for Main Port Mourant and means this delightful rum from Diamond was distilled using their double wooden pot still. Pour a healthy measure while researching that on Google!

WOLF Island “Take 2” is the follow up to 2021 ‘s original bottling and extends Single Cask Nation’s collaboration with Water of Life Film. This Single Malt Scotch whisky release is a marriage of six 1st fill ex-Bourbon casks;  five of which were unpeated with the sixth being lightly peated, bottled at the quaffable ABV of 48.8%. While we must be Squirrelly regarding the source of the liquid we can guarantee its deliciousness.

Nose: Bright and citrusy with pronounced grain sweetness to begin but sit with it and there’s canned fruit cocktail, white stone fruits, and a few wisps of earthy smoke

Palate: An unctuous entry with a mouth coating oiliness delivers notes of melted vanilla ice cream over canned peaches, baked apples smothered in warm custard, cinnamon dusted oatmeal, and just a hint of cracked black pepper

Finish: Good length with milk chocolate, soft hazelnut toffee, and a little coffee bean earthiness.
