September Brand News: Whisky

September 6th, 2017 | Posted in: Brand News,Whisky

Jura Unveils Limited Edition

Jura Single Malt Whisky has unveiled a new limited edition expression named One and All. It has been created in celebration of Jura’s community and the team of distillery workers who craft the award-winning whisky.

This celebratory 20 year old single malt assemblage, which is non-chill filtered and natural colour, raises a glass to the distillery team and island community who make the whisky what it is today. A must-have collectable for whisky fans, with the community at the heart of it, this small batch release (51% ABV – Cask strength) is available globally with an RSP of £120. The realities of living on a remote island in a small community means that everyone has to work together for the benefit of one and all. Nowhere is this bond stronger than at Jura Distillery.

Graham Logan, Distillery Manager said: “There’s no better way to mark the distillery team’s dedication and craftsmanship, than by creating a limited edition expression in their honour – chosen by them. In tribute to their passion and tenacity – the shared spirit that each person brings to every last drop – this special whisky is the perfect dram to toast one and all. We can’t wait to hear what people think.”


GORDON & MACPHAIL ADDS BLADNOCH SINGLE MALT WHISKY TO PORTFOLIO

Gordon & MacPhail, has become the sole UK distributor of Bladnoch Distillery’s Single Malt range. The range, which includes Samsara (no age statement), Adela 15 years old and Talia 25 years old, is presented in distinctive, contemporary prestige packaging, which is in-keeping with its modern flavour profile that displays traditional Lowland characteristics.

The whiskies have been crafted by Bladnoch’s master distiller and blender, Ian MacMillan, who joined the distillery after its purchase by Australian entrepreneur David Prior in July 2015. Since then, Ian has carefully curated the expressions using the portfolio of whiskies available in the inventory.

Bladnoch’s Single Malt range will be added to Gordon & MacPhail’s Exclusive Distributor portfolio. Stephen Rankin, UK sales director for Gordon & MacPhail, said, “It is an honour to be promoting Bladnoch’s range of Single Malts in the UK. There is a real shortage of premium, Lowland Single Malts on the market. The impressive packaging reflects its premium positioning and we are confident that there will be strong demand for the whiskies.”

 


BENRIACH RELEASES BATCH 14 CASK BOTTLING

Jura Single Malt

The BenRiach Distillery has released its Batch 14 Cask Bottling. The seven casks of both unpeated and peated malt reflect the distillery’s experimental approach to distilling and cask maturation. Batch 14 features first fill Oloroso sherry butts, port pipes, a first fill virgin oak cask, a first fill marsala hogshead and a Pedro Ximenez sherry puncheon. Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie describes Batch 14 as “an exciting and bold choice of casks,” adding: “The single malt whiskies selected in this most recent BenRiach cask bottling reflect the innovative and pioneering philosophy of The BenRiach Distillery when it comes to making exceptional Scotch whisky.”


THE GLENDRONACH DISTILLERY RELEASES ‘WHISKY FIT FOR A KINGSMAN’

The GlenDronach Distillery has released The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage, a unique collaboration with Marv films and Twentieth Century Fox to mark the release of ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’. The GlenDronach was personally selected by Film Director, Matthew Vaughn, for his new Kingsman film as The GlenDronach is his single malt whisky of choice. To create The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage, which marks the birth year of Kingsman agent Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin, only the finest sherry casks were selected by Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie. Unashamedly Highland and endlessly complex, this rare, limited release shares the Kingsman creed of impossible perfection built on unshakeable tradition.

Film Director Matthew Vaughn said, “A Kingsman is smooth, elegant and packs a punch, as does The GlenDronach – so it felt like the perfect fit. I selected the 1991 vintage as it marks birth year of ‘Eggsy’, who is also known as Kingsman agent Galahad. It’s really special to get a limited edition vintage like this, and even more so as The GlenDronach is my favourite single malt whisky. I hope Kingsman fans around the world enjoy it as much as I do.” This rare limited edition will be available worldwide and can be purchased in speciality retailers across the UK from September.
