Our hero spirit - Ad Gefrin Single Malt - is made from the finest local barley nurtured by our farmers, distilled on site, to be shared with our community across the globe. Join our Mailing List for updates.

We believe that ‘Tácnbora’ – meaning Standard Bearer in Old English - is a fitting name for the spirit that comes before all the others. It also reflects the writings of Bede which recorded that in the 7th century King Edwin was always preceded by a standard bearer carrying a staff topped with a goat’s head – the shape of which has become our logo.

The blend itself is also a thoughtful mix of Scottish and Irish whiskies – reflecting the peoples that would have made up the Anglo-Saxon Northumbrians.


Whisky Cream Liqueur made with Tácnbora

From the Old English verb Flýtan, a ritual poetic exchange of boasts.  In Anglo-Saxon England this would be in the feasting hall, where the winner, and guests, would drink to their victory.

Flýte marries our Standard-Bearer Tácnbora Blended Whisky with rich double cream.

Fit for any feasting table, it abounds with scents of vanilla and notes of cacao, toffee, and salted caramel.

Made for sharing and enjoying together.
