Welcome to Spirit of Callander

Fancy a Wee Dram? Around 1817 Callander is thought to have had its very own illicit whisky distillery. Although the exact location of that illicit still is unknown, you can now feel that historic 'Spirit of Callander' in Callander's newest and locally owned bespoke drinks emporium; one that is dedicated to allow you to taste and buy the best Scottish Whiskies, Gins and specialist spirits 7 days a week in Callander!

Welcome to the new Spirit Of Callander: Like so many great business ideas, 'Spirit of Callander' was conceived by us over a few drams; unlike so many dram induced ideas, in the light of day and some great coffee our idea still made perfect sense. We wanted to introduce a whisky emporium to Callander that not only reflected our local and Scottish history but one that would give people the opportunity to go home with a unique purchase and drinking experience, something they perhaps might not find or be able to do elsewhere.

An ever changing stock of Whiskies, Gins and other unique Scottish drinks. At Spirit of Callander we have chosen to stock totally unique Scottish drinks that you may not necessarily find elsewhere. These include a Rare Old Brora!, 6 flavours of local Gins, Stags Breath Liqueur and a 5 times distilled Scottish Vodka! We have even sourced a quality Tonic Water 'Fever Tree' to mix your drinks with. Our unique and ever changing stock means we cannot always guarantee that a rare bottle will always be in stock, but it also means you will always be in for a pleasant surprise every time you visit us. Our whisky stock reflects each of Scotland's 6 whisky regions whilst we may not always constantly stock some of our one off rare whiskies (if we did they wouldn't be rare), What we can guarantee is we will always stock an ever changing range of whiskies of all ages & strengths, from Speyside, Highlands, Islands, Lowlands, Campbelltown and the Islay’s. Here are a few you may not find elsewhere:

  • The MacCallan M
  • Isla Octomore 5.73%
  • Bunnahabin-prevenance
  • Ben Riach - 10 year
  • Dufftown - The Singleton
  • AnCnoch
  • Tamnavulin
  • Benromach

and the list could go on. We also constantly stock an extensive range of favourites such as Glenmorangie, Aberlour, Glenfiddich, Dalmore, Tamnavulin, Talisker, Laphroig, Jura and our 2 local distilleries Deanston and Glengoyne. Deanston has kindly chosen us to sell a 21 year old Single Cask, 50% abv, distilled August 1995 and bottled October 2016. One of only 263 bottles!
