Sam Heughan delights fans with news about his Sassenach Whisky



Outlander star Sam Heughan may have just released a new tequila but he’s also set to delight whisky fans with his recent news about his Sassenach spirit.

The Scots actor, who plays Jamie Fraser in the hit show, has just announced that not only is the original Sassenach whisky back available in the UK but it has also won yet another gold medal.

Sam took to social media with a clip of him sporting a leather jacket and a huge smile, as he revealed the news to followers on Twitter, joking LA was “freezing” and that he’s brought the Scottish weather with him.

He added: “Some really great news about my little baby, the Sassenach whisky, we have just won another award in Europe, the European Wine and Spirits trophy. It’s another gold to go with the gold, I’m really proud of this little baby.”

A clearly happy Sam brandished a bottle of his whisky before stating it is also now available once again for British fans following its recent rerelease in the US.

Pointing out it was available from drinks retailer Master of Malt, the Men in Kilts host confirmed they are doing everything they can to ensure anyone in the UK who orders one will get it in time for Christmas.

The exciting whisky, which has notes of butterscotch, fresh citrus and warming spices, is priced at £79.95 from Master of Malt and can be bought here.

Sam also added they are hoping to make the whisky available in other regions around the world too.

And that’s not all, revealing he is going to be in quarantine over Christmas due to heading to New Zealand to film the second series of his hit travel show Men in Kilts with Graham McTavish, he added he will be hosting a special event for Sassenach fans.

“I’m thinking of having a wee dram for Christmas,” said Sam. “So if you want to join me on an Instagram Live bring your Sassenach along and we’ll toast in Christmas and indeed the New Year.”

The exciting festive dram-along is set to take place on the 23rd of December but Sam added he’d need to work out the time zones first which are “very confusing”.

I guess we’ll have to stay tuned to his social media for that one.
