Beam Suntory has released details of the third in its four-strong range of Glen Garioch's 'The Renaissance' series of single malt Scotch whiskies. The 17-year-old iteration, available only in the UK, has been aged in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks.

It follows Chapter One, a 15-year-old expression unveiled in 2015, and Chapter Two, which was a 16-year-old that came out last year. The series has been designed to "chart the progress of the spirit in the cask", according to Beam Suntory.

"The series takes consumers on the journey of whisky development and allows them to scale-up through the range," said Beam Suntory's international marketing manager for malts, Judith Giegerich. "Chapter 3, the penultimate release in the series, … paves the way for the pinnacle of the series."

Earlier this month, Beam Suntory announced the appointment of a new chief strategy & technology officer.
