The Small Batch Whiskey Blender’s core range of whiskeys was recently launched. Rotating plate. Founded by brothers Gordon and Ally Stevenson from Glasgow, they explained the philosophy behind their brand.
“We are beyond excited to introduce our core range to the world,” said Ally Stevenson. “While most blenders strive for perfect consistency, we prioritize quality every time.”
“We will never hesitate to blend exceptional casks for fear of not being able to recreate this exact flavor profile in the future,” he added. “Our core range will evolve each time we bottle, bringing different nuances to the whiskeys… and we love it. »
The brothers noted that, as Turntable aims to establish itself as a key player in the blended whiskey market, its core range shows great promise.
“While the first releases were limited editions, the new expressions will benefit from greater availability, making them even more accessible to connoisseurs and enthusiasts,” Stevenson continued.
Turntable’s three core expressions maintain the musical theme of their predecessors, and these core whiskeys are Paradise Funk, Smokin’ Riff, and Bittersweet Symphony. All three blends are natural colored, non-chill filtered, and clock in at 46% ABV.
The mix breakdown for this basic range includes:
Paradise Funk – 30% unnamed Speyside virgin oak barrel, 20% Benrinnes virgin oak barrel, 18% Invergordon ex-cognac barrel, 13% Knockdhu virgin oak barrel, 11% oak barrel virgin from Northern Britain, 8% Blair Athol bourbon cask.
Smoking Riff – 28% Northern British Virgin Oak Barrel, 24% Craigellachie Ex-Puncheon, 21% Knockdhu PX Puncheon, 18% Caol Ila Bourbon Barrel, 9% Caol Ila Ex-Barrel Red Wine.

“We have been delighted with the response to our limited editions this spring and are confident we have created an exceptional range to follow on from the core blends,” said Gordon Stevenson.
“These new expressions will be available in the same countries as before, namely the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Taiwan, but we are also about to open several new markets. We can’t wait for people to taste what we have imagined,” he added.
Turntable turned to Glasgow creative agency Thirst Craft to help bring their product to life with new packaging.
