Latest Whisky News - Wemyss Malts Tours Scotland with new Single Cask Releases - 27th July, 2012
Wemyss Malts is delighted to announce the release of their latest single cask malt whiskies. Each cask is a celebration of the unique and contrasting appeals of the different Scotch whisky regions and this release covers five of the regions for the first time. Wemyss whiskies are each identified by their natural taste and aroma and this latest range comprises:
“Driftwood” – a 15 year old from Bunnahabhain distillery, Islay
“Wild Berry Spice” – a 25 year old from Miltonduff distillery, Speyside
“Fresh Fruit Sorbet” – a 15 year old from Clynelish distillery, Highland
“Strawberry Ganache” – a 21 year old from Glen Scotia distillery, Campbeltown
“Lemon Sorbet” – a 14 year old from Auchentoshan distillery, Lowlands
Each cask has been selected by the Wemyss tasting panel, under the watchful eye of industry aficionado Charlie Maclean. The recommended retail prices range from £55 to £110 and these casks will be available in selected retailers in the UK, EU and key Asian markets.
This launch also introduces a new label design and premium gift boxes for the Wemyss single malt single cask range, designed to accentuate the hand-crafted nature of these rare bottlings.
William Wemyss, Managing Director at Wemyss Malts, commented: “This latest bottling covers more of Scotland than we’ve ever launched before by including our first ever cask from The Lowlands. In fact, we’ve covered more miles in Scotland than the Olympic torch!”
