About Us & Our Partners

In starting The Whiskey Boutique Ltd (Trading as The Whisky Library) our aim was to create a great Whisky online store here in New Zealand, and to do that we wanted to find a great quality, unique scotch whisky from a small family owned distillery and market it here in Auckland, New Zealand. While in Edinburgh Scotland we were introduced to Norval’s 5yr Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky & Norval’s Blended Sensible Scotch Whisky. These two scotch whiskey’s fitted the bill perfectly. Later we were introduced to a tasty Irish Whiskey (Hyde) that we just couldn’t resist adding to our collection.

We hope that this is the start of a great partnership with New Zealand’s whiskey/whisky drinkers. People that enjoy that unique boutique whisky not sold in every bar or liquor store.

Scotch Whisky is to savour.

The Whisky Library’s ‘home shop’ is in Auckland, New Zealand, but we only operate online and distribute nationwide.

Rugged West Cork provides the perfect maturing conditions for our exceptional 10-year old single malt Irish whiskey. Distilled in a copper pot still, HYDE whiskey is double matured in flame charred, first fill, oak bourbon casks, and finished in vintage sherry casks.
Handcrafted in very small limited edition batches, then cut with fresh West Cork spring water, and non-chill filtered for a more original character.
HYDE is a presidential quality whiskey, celebrating the inaugural appointment of Ireland’s very first president Douglas Hyde and the establishment of the Irish free state in 1922. A 100% malted Irish barley whiskey from a single distillery – HYDE is a true taste of the Irish free spirit.
