Through supplying quality spirits at fair prices, the shop became an institution for making fine malts accessible to all. Milroy’s celebrates its 60th anniversary in November 2024, with an array of events and special releases planned to drop throughout the year.

Commenting on the launch, Jolyon Dunn, Milroy’s CEO, said: “We’re incredibly excited to share these new bottlings at the start of what’s set to be a special year for us here at Milroy’s. Our team is always on the hunt for remarkable casks to bottle and share, and all four January 2024 releases are just that. With Vintage Reserve, it’s all about celebrating classic distillery character and what makes each place so special. For Soho Selection, we’re looking for the more unusual, more modern expressions that show good whisky can come at any age."
