The Sassenach whisky to be re-stocked in the UK in time for Christmas

Sam Heughan's whisky, The Sassenach, has been a sellout success both here and in America.

Published: December 1, 2021

The Outlander star released The Sassenach in 2020, first in the US and then in the UK in December.

Made by Loch Lomond Whiskies, the blended Scotch has won multiple awards since its release, including double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Championship and another double gold medal at this year's New York World Wine and Spirits Competition (NYWWSC).

If you missed out on buying a bottle when it was first released then you're in luck, as it will be available in the UK again this month.

Posting on St Andrew's Day, the team behind the whisky confirmed that UK whisky fans could buy a bottle 'next week' - the Scotsman believes this date may be the 8 December.

Priced at £79.95, The Sassenach was available through online retailers such as Master of Malt and on the Loch Lomond Whiskies website.

In late 2020 Sam Heughan joined us on our podcast Scran to chat about his whisky, as well as why he chose a blend over a single malt, how it was almost made in America and his re-discovered love of Scotland through filming Outlander.

The actor also hinted at what other drinks may be released, saying: "In the future, I think we're going to start looking at other innovative spirits, whether it's whisky or something else.

"But I think a single grain (whisky) is definitely a route we want to look at as well, because they're so good - and probably the majority of what I'm drinking right now."
