UK: Tobermory Distillery rolls-out limited edition malt
Burn Stewart Distillers is adding a 15-year-old Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky to its Tobermory Distillery range.
The brand extension, was made using a "dual-location-maturation", first transferring the spirit into González Byass Oloroso Sherry casks and then moving each cask from the mainland, where the whisky develops, back to the island of Mull for its final year.
The bottle comes gift-boxed in dark-gold oak, with the bottle wrapped in a gift tissue wrap that illustrates Tobermory Bay. Final touches include a three piece insert, incorporating a smoked grey clear foiled envelope; historic photograph with master distiller's tasting notes and a gift card with bay imagery.
Alison Winship, Burn Stewart's marketing manager for the brand said: "The release of this cherished 15 year old island single malt from Tobermory's distillery has been inspired by the island and its people - a place where tradition and authenticity are omnipresent. This new pack has been nurtured and hand-crafted to reflect its roots and, like all great things, it will remain limited and treasured."
