The Leith Export Co., the commercial trading arm for Lind & Lime and Port of Leith products, has announced the release of a new blended whisky – modelled on the infinity bottle concept.
In anticipation of the new £13.5m Port of Leith vertical Distillery, due to open this summer, Perpetuity is the first whisky offering by The Leith Export Co. joining its signature Lind & Lime London dry gin, La Garde Écossaise champagne and Port of Leith’s Oloroso sherry and white and tawny port.
The first batch of a limited number of 1,430 bottles are now available, comprising a blend of single malt and single grain whiskies from Highland, Speyside, and Lowland distilleries.
Ian Stirling, Co-Founder of Leith Export Co., said, “The name Perpetuity is inspired by the way we intend to collect and blend whiskies from distilleries across Scotland, bottle at least half of this vat and then replenish with different whiskies, which leaves us with a perpetual vat of intriguing and complex Scotch whisky.
“Batch 1 is made up of casks from Deanston, North British and Glentauchers distilleries, which combine to create a smooth whisky with notes of caramelised apple tart on the nose, toffee and marmalade on the palate before finishing with a sharp lemon drizzle cake with clotted cream.”
The Leith Export Co. has already enjoyed success in the spirits market – recently expanding into North America, with its first shipment of Lind & Lime gin.
Batch 1 of Perpetuity is retailing at £38.50, with an ABV of 45.7%.
