We've developed a new area of functionality on Connosr which, it's fair to say, has been in the pipeline for a while. So it is with great pleasure that we announce the beta (that means the phase where you all get play with it) of 'Whisky Lists' a new tool that allows users to create, customise and share lists based around whisky.
Whisky Lists - are what you make of them.
As many of you will be aware Connosr co-founded an exciting new 'Music & Whisky' festival in 2011 which took place across two days in September and brought together some of the finest bands and whiskies known to man.

Our good friends at Clubhouse Records - the UK's leading Americana label - are holding their Christmas shindig over at Proud Camden, London, on Sunday 11th December. It's a free event with some fantastic bands and to top it all Connosr's Pierre Thiebaut will be there pouring whisky samples.

Edited by Dominic Roskrow World Whisky Review is a new bi-monthly online magazine dedicated entirely to the people, whiskies and distilleries from countries outside the traditional whisky producing nations of Scotland, Ireland, Japan, the United States and Canada.

2010 was a busy year for Whisky Connosr and it's fair to say that, in the second half of the year, one of our primary goals was getting Connosr Distilled off the ground.
Doc Brown - nothing to do with our new dock.
Nothing cheers us up like telling someone they've just won a prize, so a week after taking the Christmas decorations down at Connosr HQ we still have good reason to be merry today.
Competition winners are drawn!
Just in time to join in the festive fun here on Connosr - we are pleased to announce our latest distillery profile for Glengoyne.

In January 2010, after weeks of heavy snow and record low temperatures, four feet of densely compacted snow covered the Glenfiddich distillery roofs, which housed hundreds of casks of fine aged whisky, gently maturing in semi-darkness.
