About
At The Jar we specialise in single malt scotch whisky, with whiskies from all of Scotland's working distilleries, and some closed one's. In addition to our range of single malts we also offer a selection of Scottish produced gins, this is a sector that is growing and proving to be very popular with Scotland leading the way with huge number of top quality gins. Our aim is to provide single malts and gins that are not commonly available in supermarkets, with prices ranging from £24 to over £5000 we offer an interesting and varied range of drinking whiskies right through to rare and collectable bottles. We host whisky and gin tasting sessions and master classes for tour groups and private parties. These can be themed to suit your needs and held at time that best fits your plans. We also stock a wide range of whisky related gifts such as hip flasks, quaichs, noising glasses, books and whisky scented candles. All of our gifts are locally sourced as part of our commitment and philosophy to promote local manufactures and businesses whenever possible.

Tasting night
Oct 2018 • Friends
Attended a whisky tasting night in The Jar. Had an excellent and informative evening with a talk from a representative of Gordon & McPhail - independent bottlers. Sampled several single malts including some from the Benromach distillery. Well worth the admission price and if you buy a bottle of the whiskies tasted this is offset against the cost of the bottle. Hope to get along to any future evenings.

Have been here several times and David is always ready to share a sample of something new to try. He is very knowledgable about recommending whiskies after getting to know your preferences. Friendly to chat with, and good prices as well.

Whiskey Tasting Evening
May 2018
What a treat we had whilst visiting our son and his wife on being introduced to a Whiskey tasting evening. 5 nips of the visiting Arran Distillery Malts together with two Scottish Clad representatives giving a very informative description on the brewing and history of the Whiskey. The admission price was deducted on any purchase made. The owner and his son gave a great service and were also very knowledgeable. If ever you have chance when visiting this area this is a must to savour some Scottish Culture you will exit feeling very merry, warm and happy.

Glad you had a great time! Our distillery sampling nights are always exciting evenings, different distillery or bottler every month. The chaps from Arran were amazing hosts. Hope to see you again soon.

Tamdhu
Mar 2017 • Solo
Have used The Jar before on a few occasions and have always found the proprietor very helpful. He is always willing to talk about various malts and will check online if you ask about a particular Whisky has does not stock. Called in this time for a bottle of Tamdhu and enquired about a couple of others. will continue to use this excellent establishment.

Superb range of Whisky and Gin
Aug 2016
Great range of Whiskys that you won't find in any supermarket. The owner only stocks superior products that he can personally vouch for ! Very welcoming atmosphere in the shop - owner is delighted to spend time asking for your preferences, giving advice and, usually, dispensing samples. If you want a cheap bottle of good whisky go to a supermarket. If you want a superb bottle, go to the Jar !

Above comments now also apply to gin. Good range of rare and specialist gins - getting wider all the time.

Great scotch whisky selection; knowledgeable staff
Aug 2016
First place I stopped when I got to Troon. They have a wide variety of whiskies, and several bottles open to sample if you're curious. The guy manning the store was very friendly and helpful. I ended up with two bottles, one to drink during my trip, and one to take home. Neither could I find in the US.

A wonderful malt whisky experience
May 2016 • Friends
I attended one of the many tasting events arranged and hosted by the Jar. It was reasonably priced and the whisky expert from Glenfarclas was very knowledgable and highly intertaining. We tasted six different Glenfarclas malts and twith each one there was a fascinating insight into the selection along with some stories relating to them.
It was a great event.
The Jar has a huge selection of malt whiskies and the owner and his son who run it are very knowledgable and very eager to help and advise anyone entering the shop.
It is a truly wonderful whisky shop and an excellent place to visit in Troon.

Whiskie Whiskie.

Platitudinal discourse on whiskie. Like a Sturgeon Spin Doctor. Nothing new was learned. Go to Morris ons for a sweet breath of whiskie air.
