Glen Scotia unveils rare 30 Year Old Single Malt. Only 500 limited edition bottles available worldwide
Published Date: 24th November 2020
Award-winning independent distiller, Glen Scotia, has introduced a new rare 30-Year-Old Single Malt scotch whisky to its range.
Presented in a luxurious hand-made case, created from sustainably sourced solid oak, the Glen Scotia 30-Year-Old is extremely limited, with only 500 bottles available to purchase worldwide.
This exceptional liquid has been created by using a single distillation from 1989, which has been matured in European Oak hogshead sherry casks, giving it the distinct, sweet flavour that Glen Scotia is renowned for.
The Glen Scotia 30 Year Old Single Malt offers exquisite floral notes of violet and lavender on the nose, that develop into hints of green apple and spice. On the palate, the liquid is wonderfully soft and silky, with initial flavours of honeyed pear and candied lemon coming to the fore.
In the mouth, the flavours intensify, with warm notes of cinnamon and ground ginger, leading into dark chocolate and coffee. The finish is long, and ends with sugary sweetness and waves of warming spice.
Iain McAlister, Master Distiller at Glen Scotia, said: "The Glen Scotia 30 Year Old Single Malt is an exceptional new addition to Glen Scotia's portfolio. The flavour profile is deep and distinguished, showcasing the complex flavours and maritime influence that Glen Scotia has become known for.
"Like our distillery, the Glen Scotia 30 Year Old is steeped in history and after three decades of maturation, I am proud to finally be able to unveil this new expression to the world."
Non-chill filtered to ensure it is enjoyed as nature intended, Glen Scotia 30 Year Old is bottled at 50.8% ABV and presented in a striking case created using sustainably sourced British oak, keeping each individually numbered bottle in place. Inside, the case boasts elegant black lining.
Priced at £850, Glen Scotia 30 Year Old is available to purchase now from specialist retailers, including Master of Malt.

Glen Scotia is a whisky made by history, reflecting the centuries of craftsmanship and experience associated with the fifth and smallest malt producing region.
Cambeltown is Scotland's smallest malt producing region. Throughout the Victorian era, it was known as the whisky capital of the world and was home to more than 30 distilleries.
To raise awareness of the importance of the region to Scotland's whisky history, Glen Scotia campaigned for Campbeltown to be recognised as the "whiskiest place in the world". A parliamentary motion on the issue lodged at Westminster received cross party support.For more information, please visit www.glenscotia.com
