2. Whisky Pastilles, £9.99

Harvey Nichols

These punchy pastilles have a real kick to them – they're the "only confectionery product on the market with such a high alcohol volume (6-8% abv)". The pack also includes two cocktail recipes to accompany your sweets. Ideal.

3. Whisky Cocktail Pack, £42.50

Shaken Cocktails

Shaken Cocktails is a cool subscription service that sends you the ingredients for several cocktails each month – you can choose from whisky, gin or rum as your base spirit.

I've tried the gin one, and it's great – generous measures, interesting ingredients, and craft producers.

If you don't fancy signing up, they also sell direct here.

5. Distiller, Free

This cool app is basically Yelp for booze – in a bar with a whisky you've not tried before? Pull up the app, check the ratings, and avoid splashing out on something you'll hate.

Get it for iOS here and Android here.

6. London Distillery Company Tour, £15

LDC

Take a tour of London’s first whisky distillery since 1903, and sample a cocktail while finding out more about the whisky (and gin!) distilling process.

And if you're in Dublin, you must tour Teeling's Distillery, which is my whiskey of choice at the moment.

9. Mac and Wild Small Batch Cocktails, £35.45

These delectable small batch whisky cocktails are created in Edinburgh and use locally sourced Scottish herbs and botanicals. For example, the Auld Pal includes Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old whisky, bianco vermouth, wild chamomile, gorse flower, dandelion & burdock bitters.

They're then sold in conjunction with Scottish game restaurant Mac and Wild (if you ever have the chance to try their wild heather brownie you must, it is mind-bogglingly good.)

10. Mature Your Own Whisky Kit, £124.99

firebox.com

This kit comes with an oak barrel and two bottles of malted barley spirit, to allow you to mature your own whisky. Here's the fun bit: once you've used the barrel for both bottles, why not mature a batch of old fashioneds in it?

And then, if you want to take it to the next level, mature another batch of malted barley spirit in the old fashioned barrel. Delicious.
