Whisky Miniatures: 5 Best Top Selling Whisky Brands to Add in your Bag!
There is no question that the history of human civilization itself has a close association with the evolution of liquor -- what once was almost divinely termed in Latin, “aqua vitae” which means, “water of life”. From toasting to conquests that earned an empire new territories to religious ceremonies, alcohol was there as an active component of all forms of celebrations from the most bizarre to the holiest of them all.
“Whisky” to Europeans or “Whiskey” to the Americans is a word that originates from the Gaelic tongue, “uisge” or, more completely, “uisge beatha” which also means “water of life”. Owing to its priceless value, whisky has become an integral component of tradition, one that definitely goes beyond the price tag when one asks, “How much does Jim Beam cost?”
That’s why whisky makers put their stories and histories forward pompously, simply because there’s more to drinking whisky than just getting tipsy. Take a Glenfiddich, for instance, and you’ll be holding more than just a whisky on the rocks in your hand. A Glenfiddich has been in the process of creation and perfection since 1887 by one of the pillars of modern day whisky himself, William Grant. You’ll discover similar narratives in the long (and winding) history of liquors that usually begin with the vision of a forefather retold generation after generation of families of distillers. So, next time you seek ‘Where to buy a Glenfiddich?’ you know you’re not only buying a bottle but a legend.
That said, if you’re looking for something extraordinarily special to toast to a once in a lifetime milestone, cheers to a long life, hail to good health, or just hope for the best days ahead, there’s really none quite like a celebration marked with a bottle of whisky. Create your own treasured memories by sharing a bottle of Jack’s or Johnnie with your dear family and most esteemed friends by your side. They got your back, just as a Jim Beam guarantees to satisfy your refined choice for whisky.
For your personal satisfaction, listed below are five of the most highly and critically acclaimed whiskies of them all:

2. Chivas Regal
When it’s “Generosity and Ambition” you’re after simultaneously, the distillers behind this luxury brand of blended scotch advises, “You just need the right blend.” Originally blended by brothers, James and John Chivas, this global whisky label began as a vision in a remote farm in Scotland. As the brothers succeeded in their business ventures, their philanthropic work also expanded. In 1843, their blended scotch received a Royal Warrant and was savoured by Queen Victoria’s court. By 1909, the Chivas brothers took New York by storm. Today, when you ask, “Where to buy Chivas Regal?” It’s everywhere.
Toast to your relationships. Toast to partnerships. Raise a glass to the best of the East and West, old and new -- only with a Chivas Regal. The Chivas Regal 12 Year Blended Scotch Whisky is characterised to be round and creamy on the palate and is best for random celebrations even for those moments when there’s seemingly none special to toast to. Get a hold of more complex whisky with the Chivas Regal Royal Salute 21 Year Blended Scotch Whisky available in Red, Blue and Green variants.

3. Johnnie Walker
From the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world,” you’ll always find a reason to celebrate with the exquisite and well-rounded range of blended scotch from this label. John Walker, founder of this label, was driven by a motive to bring more consistency to the blended whisky that became highly coveted in Scotland by the 19th century. You can rest assured that you’ll get the same experience every time you open this dram.
Top-selling variants from Johnnie Walker’s core range include the Johnnie Walker 12 Year Black Label Blended Whisky and the Johnnie Walker Red Label Blended Whisky. Both are available in 5cl miniature bottles from Just Miniatures. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you should consider buying for your collection, the Johnnie Walker Whitewalker Game of Thrones -- also available in 70cl bottles from Just Miniatures.
4. Jack Daniels
The infamous Jack’s from Tennessee so frequently mentioned in songs is proud to be the first registered distillery in the US in 1866. The Old No. 7 became the new standard in American whisky with the extraordinary flavours it owes to limestone spring water blended with corn, rye and barley. Once again, alcohol and religion came together in creating this label. Founder Jack Daniel established the distillery with Dan Call, who was a preacher. After many legal battles, Jack Daniels was finally in the business of making whisky for good by 1947.
Where to buy Jack Daniels miniatures? Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey is available from Just Miniatures in 5cl bottles, shaped and labeled just like its regular-sized cousins and holds no less than the same well-loved whisky. Also available in mini bottles are the Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select Tennessee Whiskey, Jack Daniels (Cinnamon) Tennessee Fire Liqueur, and Jack Daniels (Honey) Original Recipe Tennessee Liqueur. If you just can’t get enough of Jack’s, why not keep a stash of a pack in your bag? See the Jack Daniels Family of Brands Whiskey Miniature Gift Set which contains 5cl bottles each of the Old No. 7, Single Barrel Select, and the Gentleman Jack Rare Tennessee Whisky.
5. Jim Beam
Yet another iconic name in the history of American whiskey, Jim Beam is made with bourbon, the same way it has always been for over 200 years. Although the recipe has been loved by Americans ever since it was first distributed in 1795, it wasn’t until 1934, after reopening the distillery, that the label, “Colonel James B. Beam” later contracted to just “Jim Beam” Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, was used. Made even more American by the brand’s active participation in World War II efforts, Jim Beam today is sold in at least 200 countries.
Top-selling core variants include the Jim Beam White Bourbon Whiskey, Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Jim Beam Honey Whiskey, Jim Beam Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon Whiskey, and the Jim Beam Black Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. All are available in mini bottles from Just Miniatures.
