UK: Inver House Distillers launches Balblair 1965
Inver House Distillers has announced a limited edition version of its Balblair Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky.
Only 350 bottles of Balbair 1965 will be released, with each one expected to sell for GBP1,250 (US$2,000) Inver House said today (23 October).
The whisky, which is 52.3%abv, will only be stocked in specialist retailers, the group said.
Buyers will also receive a bespoke certificate of authenticity, a booklet and a letter hand-signed by distillery manager John MacDonald, informing consumers that they are entitled to receive a GBP300 limited edition print of the Balblair distillery by acclaimed Scottish photographer Fin Macrae.
Earlier this year, Inver House has launched an updated website for Balblair, detailing the history of the vintage malt portfolio.
