Whyte & Mackay has launched a single malt from its Tamnavulin brand that has been finished in Sauvignon Blanc wine casks.
The company, owned by Philippines-based Emperador, is preparing the UK release of Tamnavulin White Wine Cask Edition for this month. The no-age-statemented expression, which follows Tamnavulins Red Wine Cask Editions, has been aged in American white oak barrels, before being finished in casks that previously held the white wine.
A roll-out to selected European markets and the US is scheduled for the coming months.
Speyside-based Tamnavulin was inherited by Emperador in 2014 through its acquisition of Whyte & Mackay from Diageo-controlled United Spirits.
