TBG & Co has rolled out the latest expression of The Glover whisky, a blend made up of liquid from Scottish distilleries and Hanyu whisky from Japan.

The Glover 18 year old follows 22- and 14-year-old expressions launched into global markets. Only 1,448 bottles will be available.

The whisky was made in collaboration with Fife's Adelphi Distillery, which blended mature whisky from Longmorn and Glen Garioch distilleries in Scotland with rare whisky from the Hanyu distillery in Japan to create the Glover fusions. According to TBG, there are only a handful of Hanyu casks left.

The whisky brand takes its name from Thomas Blake Glover, who aided the modernisation of Japan in the 19th Century.
