La Martiniquaise-Bardinet has launched a new “super-premium” blended Scotch whisky that it hopes will attract consumers to the Label 5 portfolio.

Label 5 18-Year-Old Extra Rare was launched last week at the TFWA World Exhibition in France and will be available from the start of next year, La Martiniquaise-Bardinet said. “I have big expectations for this latest addition which I’m sure will translate into further success and that will attract new consumers to the brand,” Label 5 brand director Aurélie Prat said.

La Martiniquaise-Bardinet also previewed a 25-year-old expression of its Glen Moray single malt at TFWA.
