Established in 2015 by brothers Daniel and Craig Milne, Whisky Hammer is a popular family-run whisky auction service which aims to bring an exciting array of whiskies to drinks-lovers all over the world.
See how Daniel got on in our round of quick fire questions below.
It’s the end of your working day – what do you pour yourself?
Just now I am enjoying a 16-year-old single cask Clynelish ’96.
If you were a drink, what would you be?
Rum – seems more exotic.
Most unusual customer request?
A customer asked us whether we auction empty bottles.
What would the theme song to your average working day be?
MC Hammer – U Can’t Touch This.
What’s in your drinks cabinet at home?
My taste preference is Speyside/Highland or lightly peated Islay such as Bunnahabhain or Bowmore,
so most of the “drinking” bottles at home are from these regions. I have a collection that has been gradually building over the last 10 or so years, but it’s tucked away safely!
Best food and drink pairing?
Cheese and anything.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three drinks are there with you?
Water, Punk IPA, Balvenie 15-year-old Single Barrel (Sherry).
Your favourite superhero/celebrity is sitting at the bar. Who is it and what do you serve them?
John Frusciante (RHCP guitarist) – I’m guessing he’d appreciate a nice bourbon.
