The spirit of scotland pop up bar

About Us


Hi, I'm Rab, originally from Glasgow but lived and worked in and around London for the last 12 years.

My concept is to make Scottish single malt whisky accessible to all. For too long people have been droning on about distilling and tasting notes. Forget about connoisseurs and experts, taste the whisky and make up your own mind. Whisky should be fun! We seem to have mastered wine, gin and even coffee, now for whisky! 

As well as the pop up bar I also host fun informal whisky tasting events and a Scottish themed whisky tour in London. 


The Bar

Let me bring the orange antlers and 20 Scottish single malt whiskies to your wedding, private party, corporate or other fun event. The bar covers from London to the South coast and beyond. I've divided the malts in to 4 areas of taste and cover all 6 of the main whisky producing areas. There will be a plan on the bar to help you choose. The whiskies range from 10yr old to 21yr old. There might even be a couple off menu bottles of rare whisky hiding under the bar. To keep things simple I only have 3 mixers; natural highland spring water (my preferred choice), ice cubes (don't listen to the experts) or more whisky. There are even a couple of whisky cocktails and Scottish gins if that's your thing! Please bear in mind the small pop up bar operates best alongside another fully operational bar. The bar also stocks a small selection of quality hand rolled Cuban and Honduran cigars that you can enjoy paired with your scotch.


The Barman

The barman serving your drams, cocktails and cigars will be me! If I can help you choose I will, however the only guarantee is that I will be encouraging you to try some whisky. Lets get over the mystery and intrigue and start exploring. I am also looking to revive the Scottish tradition of a hauf an' a hauf, or 'Boilermaker'. A dram of whisky drunk alongside a 1/2 pint of lager or beer chaser. With the number of excellent craft beers now being brewed it's the perfect opportunity to try and do your own pairing. Hope to see you with the bar or on a tour soon! Sláinte  (Cheers)!
