Bacardi has rolled out a new expression from its Dewar’s Scotch whisky brand.

Dewar’s Double Double 36-Year-Old underwent a “quadruple ageing process” that involved an unspecified number of malt whiskies for individual maturation over 36 years. The liquids were then brought together according to their whisky region, in this case, Speyside and Islay, and aged for an unspecified period before being blended and finished in ex-Madeira wine casks.

“The introduction of the 36 Year Old further elevates its status and represents our ambition and commitment for Dewar’s to be rated as the most progressive whisky by new appreciators and tastemakers, especially in Asia-Pacific,” said the global marketing head for Bacardi’s GTR unit, Ignacio Vazquez.

Earlier this month, Bacardi released a report indicating that the Tequila and Bourbon categories will benefit most from the pandemic-accelerated premiumisation trend.
