About This Competition

Our first subscribers free draw for 2023 is this quaint release from award winning North Star Spirits. The reasons for the name and the irregularity of future Periodical releases are tied together: the Periodical series is North Star’s ingenious solution to a common issue facing indie bottlers – what to do with a cask that hasn’t got very much liquid in it?

These casks may be low-yielding for various reasons – they might be leftovers from private bottlings where customers only wanted a small number of bottles, they may be from particularly small or leaky barrels or they may just have been victims of thirsty angels who took more than their fair share.  North Star’s boss Iain Croucher’s solution is to bottle them as Periodical releases: in smaller bottles, slightly below cask strength.

Periodical #1 is a 12-year-old single malt whisky from an Orkney Distillery (nudge nudge), has yielded 424 50cl bottles at 50% comes in an old-style apothecary flask-type bottle and label.
