Raising Glasses is a new independent bottler of Scotch, Rum, and other spirits. Lorri and John, the founders and husband and wife team, have collected Scotch Whisky for many decades. Their well-developed palates have taken them to this new and exciting world of picking their own casks and bottling them under their “Raising Glasses” label. They are about sharing good bottles and want to raise a glass with you! Holly has also been friends with them for quite some time as they were customers of hers when she worked in Boston. Good people and good whisky ( and rum); what more can you ask for?


“The Whistler” was distilled in 2008 and bottled in 2023 | 12YRS Venezuela maturation, 2YRS UK | Molasses distilled on column still | No sugar or other additives

5% of all bottle profits go to Venezuela’s South American Initiative to aid orphaned children and homeless animals.

Brand Tasting Notes: We think of this as the “Everything Bagel” of rums: It’s a sumptuous smorgasbord that checks a wild variety of flavors: Sea salt caramel, bitter mocha, baking spices, toasted oak, a little citrus zing, a touch of funky petrol.
