Spirits - beyond the ‘obvious’ brands

Can anyone recommend interesting new brands of spirits to try?

I’m a bit bored of wine - and I don’t want the mess of mixed cocktails.

Finishing a nice Chase pink gin - which was fun. Worth the mark up in price (I kid myself I drink by price not volume - so better brands are better for my liver)

Wondering about trying a whisky ...? Don’t know any brands other than JD.

Any other ideas?

Can you get Vodka North in the UK? It's more of a liqueur (20%) and sipped neat rather than adding a mixer.

Sorry it's 'Smirnoff North' blush

Can’t see that - can see normal smirnoff - or ‘flavoured’ - which looks a bit dubious

Big fan of their brecon gin. Usually much cheaper on Amazon - and they even got their chocolate orange gin into Lidl this Christmas.

Four Pillars gin is very nice and available on Amazon (I think). Also Zubrowka vodka is very nice and good with apple juice as a mixer.

Tallisker is lovely. My favourite is Tallisker Storm.
