Beam Global Spirits & Wine is phasing out the 15-year-old version of its Laphroaig Scotch whisky brand, in favour of a new, 18-year-old variant.

The company confirmed today (20 April) that Laphroaig 18 Year Old will roll out in the UK next month, through its distribution joint venture, Maxxium, with The Edrington Group. Limited to around 7,500 cases a year, the 48% abv brand extension will retail in the UK at around GBP49.99 (US$72.92) per 70cl bottle.

Laphroaig 18 Year Old will be available in the US and domestic Europe, as well as in a few markets in the Far East and Australia, within the next two months. It will not be available in travel retail, however, a spokesperson for Maxxium UK told just-drinks.

Around 65 bottles of Laphroaig 15 Year Old remain, with these set to be made available only to members of the consumer club 'Friends of Laphroaig' on a first come, first serve basis.
