Edrington UK unveils ARDRAY, the newest addition to its Scotch whisky portfolio


ARDRAY is a new take on blended Scotch from Beam Suntory, and the latest Scotch Whisky to join Edrington UK’s portfolio.

Built on the premise that blended whisky is an art form that deserves both respect and reappraisal, Beam Suntory explain that they have crafted ARDRAY “to challenge preconceptions. In treating both malt and grain whiskies as equals, we have produced a whisky that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.”

Created from no more than 10 distilleries from the Beam Suntory portfolio which includes Laphroaig, Bowmore, Ardmore and Glen Garioch, it “brings together Scotland’s unique terroir and long-standing craft tradition, with the precision and artistry of Japanese whisky blending.”

It has been developed by Chief Blender, Calum Fraser,,he said Lewis, “In creating ARDRAY we have combined an exceptional selection of the very best Scotch whisky has to offer with the inspiring talent of Suntory’s blending team to create something new, refreshing and exciting. The time, care and attention to detail taken to source both malt and grain whiskies from some of Scotland’s most noted distilleries has allowed us to explore hundreds of blends of Scotch malt and grain whiskies to achieve ARDRAY’s optimum balance of multi-layered flavours.  Driven by the desire to ensure the true beauty of this blend is greater than the sum of its parts. ARDRAY promises a rich and complex taste, with a distinctive harmony of flavours: a mild, gently floral, and citrusy fruitiness, with a vanilla custard creaminess and a rich, silky mouthfeel and lengthy aftertaste that is unmatched.
