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?


“Yowie” was distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2023 | 11YRS Australia maturation, 5YRS UK | Molasses distilled on column & pot stills | No sugar or other additives

5% of all bottle profits go to the North Queensland Animal Rescue of Australia.

Brand Tasting Notes: One of the oldest independent bottlings of the Beenleigh Artisan Distillery, Yowie was made with the Indigenous S. Pombe yeast (discontinued in 2010) which produces low output but loads of rich flavor compounds, resulting in an elegant, herbally potent rum redolent of eucalyptus, tangerine and molasses funk, giving way to a sophisticated dry finish.
