The Spirit of
Sleeper services

Our whisky

Our exclusive whisky marks 150 years of Scotland-London sleeper services.

While guests sleep soundly, dreaming their way through dark night skies to London’s bright lights, the majestic Highlands or iconic Edinburgh & Glasgow, the modern-day Caledonian Sleeper writes a new chapter of this 150-year history.

Handpicked at Annandale Distillery (Est.1836), our unique 8-year-old lowland malt started life in February 2015. Matured in an American oak ex-bourbon cask, our whisky off­ers hints of creamy sweet toff­ee combined with the crisp flavours of ripe Granny Smith apples and Conference pears.
