Parker’s Whisky & Gifts stocks around 400 Scotch malt whiskies, and is the only dedicated whisky shop in the area – the nearest competition being Gordon and MacPhail in Elgin.
Proprietor Richard Parker was a collector for 10 years prior to opening the shop, and some of the rare and unique bottles from his own collection are on sale; including a 1967 Kinclaith for a cool £1,000 and the extremely rare Glenfiddich 1976 Concorde Vintage. Richard is open to offers for this bottling.
“I’ve never seen one for sale before so I haven’t a clue how much it is worth!” he said.
The shop held its first whisky tasting in March and many more are planned for the future.
“We’re looking to hold one tasting evening every month, with each one hosted by a different whisky expert.”
Parker’s Whisky & Gifts can be found at: 27 Low St, Banff, Aberdeenshire, AB45 1AU Tel: +44 (0)1261 812 353
Are there any good real ale pubs in Banff now?
(Canuckis--note there is a Banff Springs Hotel in Banff. It's mentioned in the credits in Local Hero. Just a shade below the one in Alberta in class, I'm afraid!)

I've had three Glenglassaughs:
Dormant Distillers, 27yo, 47.4%
SMWS, 21.25, age & % unnoted
The Family Silver, 1973, 40%
Really liked all three, and found cherries in all--particularly the DD. Would certainly buy a bottle if one were available to me.
Does anyone know what is happening at the Glenglassaugh distillery? I know it was dormant, but I heard a rumour that it is up for sale/ sold and may go back in to production?
Would be great to hear any news - have you heard anything Richard?
