A Rare Cask Collection exclusive worthy of celebration
The Conservative Party govern the United Kingdom, the economy is showing signs of a recovery following a recent recession, and Queen Elizabeth is celebrating another Royal milestone. Few things have changed since 1992 but fortunately the place to buy whisky has. The Whisky Shop first opened its doors in 1992 with a single shop in Edinburgh and today welcomes customers to 20 stores across the UK and a brand new boutique in Paris to boot!
In celebration of our birth year, a few members of The Whisky Shop Team and one lucky customer, Neil Cromarty, headed to Dufftown to visit the Glenfiddich Distillery, where Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, helped select a single cask Glenfiddich to be bottled exclusively for The Whisky Shop customers. The first to be released from the Glenfiddich Rare Cask Collection, this cask was distilled in 1992 at a time when the now gas-fired spirit stills at the distillery were fired by coal. After maturing in a refill bourbon cask for 22 years, this exclusive malt was bottled at a strength of 55.6% abv.
A wonderful taste of history that really shows off the character of the famous distillery from the “Valley of the Deer,” this is certainly a bottle worthy of celebration!
