The tea is available from Tomatin distillery, the Eteaket Concept Store in Rose Street, Edinburgh, and online at at an RRP of £6.95 per 50g (approximately 20 servings). Erica Moore, founder and owner of Eteaket, said: “Perfect for whisky enthusiasts and tea lovers alike, our innovative whisky tea brings to life the delicate flavours of the finest black teas, heightened by the barrel ageing process that adds complex fruity aromas from Tomatin’s whisky.”
