A superb single malt, the Mars Komagatake 2021 edition boasts a core of bourbon cask matured single malt, supported by portions matured in sherry and Port casks. You can expect plenty of sweet stone fruit, oaken vanilla, and honeyed nuts alongside the rich, oily malt at its core.
The first whisky cocktail and stamp are included with the purchase of the passport at £50. The subsequent nine cocktails (redeemable in any order), can be enjoyed with a 50% discount (£18 reduced to £9). Upon completion, customers will receive the complimentary dream dram.

The bar is an elegant yet relaxed space for evening drinks, and functions as a chill out lounge to enjoy a wide range of specialist whiskies with good company.
Síbín is a term coined in Ireland meaning ‘illicit whisky’; it was used to refer to an illicit club where excisable alcoholic drinks were sold without a licence. The bar of the same name offers high-quality whiskies with wood and smoke flavour profiles alongside classic and creative cocktails, food pairings and snacks. Featuring artwork from the likes of Alastair Mackie, Belinda Frikh and Cornelia Parker RA, each piece adorning the walls has been chosen to reflect the glamorous and sultry atmosphere of the Síbín.
Opening times: Tuesday – Saturday, 7pm – 1am
