Recently launched is the core range of whiskies from small-batch whisky blender Turntable. Founded by Glasgow brothers Gordon and Ally Stevenson, they explained their brand’s ethos.
“We are beyond excited to introduce our core range to the world,” said Ally Stevenson. “Whilst most blenders strive to achieve perfect consistency, we put quality first every time.”
“We will never shy away from blending exceptional casks out of fear that we cannot recreate that exact flavor profile in the future,” he added. “Our core range will evolve each time we bottle, bringing different nuances to the whiskies … and we love that.”
The brothers noted that as Turntable aims to establish itself as a key player in the blended whisky market, their core range holds significant promise.
“While the initial releases were limited editions, the new expressions will benefit from greater availability, making them even more accessible to connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike,” Stevenson continued.
Turntable’s three core expressions retain the musical theme of their predecessors, and those core range whiskies are Paradise Funk, Smokin’ Riff, and Bittersweet Symphony. All three blends are natural color, non-chill filtered and clocks in at 46% ABV.
The blend breakdown for this core range includes:
Paradise Funk – 30% Unnamed Speyside Virgin Oak Barrel, 20% BenrinnesChinkapin Barrel, 18% Invergordon Ex-Cognac Barrel, 13% Knockdhu Virgin Oak Barrel, 11% North British Virgin Oak Barrel, 8% Blair Athol Bourbon Barrel.
Smokin’ Riff – 28% North British Virgin Oak Barrel, 24% Craigellachie Ex-Puncheon, 21% Knockdhu PX Puncheon, 18% Caol Ila Bourbon Barrel, 9% Caol Ila Ex-Red Wine Barrel.
Bittersweet Symphony – 22% Craigellachie PX Puncheon, 21% Balmenach PX Puncheon, 21% Craigellachie Oloroso Butt, 19% North British Virgin Oak Barrel, 17% Blair Athol Virgin Oak Barrel.
“We were delighted by the response to our limited editions in the spring, and we’re confident we’ve crafted an outstanding range to follow up with the core blends,” Gordon Stevenson said.
“‘These new expressions will be available in the same countries as before, the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, but we’re on the cusp of opening up several new markets, too. We can’t wait for people to sample what we’ve come up with,” he added.
Turntable looked to Glasgow creative agency Thirst Craft to help bring their product to life with new packaging.
These core blend bottlings are now available in stores and online from specialist retailers, and they have a suggested retail price of £53.
