A total of 53 bottles of the limited edition Bowmore 40 Years Old will be released for sale worldwide. The bottles are hand-blown and sculpted using molten glass and stones collected from the Islay shore. Each bottle also has a hand-engraved solid silver collar. Finally the whisky is presented on a polished slab of natural slate.

The Bowmore 1981 is the first in the Bowmore vintage series, and is limited to 402 bottles worldwide.  Presented in a wooden gift box with a brown leather strap and copper buckle, each bottle is also accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate by the distillery manager.
