William Grant is launching two new expressions next month

William Grant & Sons' Kininvie 23-year-old Batch #3

Category - Spirits, whisky, Scotch, Speyside, 42.6% abv

Available - From next month

Location - Europe, Taiwan and China 

Price - GBP75 (US$115) per 35cl bottle 

William Grant & Sons is to launch a new Kininvie expression, a 23-year-old.

It will roll out to Europe, Taiwan and China in 35cl bottles, which William Grant said appeals to Taiwanese consumers who like to buy two bottles - one to drink and one to keep as an investment. Previous releases from the Kininvie distillery, which was opened in 1990, sold out their allocations at launch.

The new expression comes as the distillery prepares to launch Special Release #1 The First Drops, a 25-year-old that is made from some of the distillery's first raw spirit. Available next month for GBP400 per 50cl bottle, only 1,600 bottles will be released, with 550 going to the UK. Each of the three casks allocated will go to a separate market - mainland Europe, the UK and Taiwan.

News of the release was first unveiled in July.
