Introduce your palate to the magic of Scotland’s finest single malts with our exclusive Private Barrel Co. label, available only at the House of Fine Whisky at Checkers LiquorShop. In order to bring you the distinguished flavours that every whisky lover deserves to enjoy, our whisky masters journey to the top distillers in Scotland and hand-pick whiskies for their unique character, rarity and devotion to the age-old traditions. These are then bottled under our Private Barrel Co. label and brought to you from single casks in limited edition, individually numbered bottles – all at supermarket prices.

Learn more about our Private Barrel Co. range from acclaimed whisky aficiando Karen Chaloner. This is what she had to say about this esteemed collection:

“If Private Barrel Co. is Aladdin, then Checkers LiquorShop is the fairy godmother (to mix our fairy tales) behind it all, making this story come alive. About five years ago, a conversation took place between two men: one was adamant that wine was the nectar of the gods; the other had full belief that the angels knew better and that whisky was the only tipple worth sharing. Soon enough, the wine lover began to see the error of his ways, and one day he rang up his whisky-loving friend and asked “Well, when are you going to find some whisky for us?” And so the seed was sewn for a range of whiskies bottled exclusively for Checkers.”
