Speyburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky announced the release of Speyburn 25 Year Old, the oldest and most exclusive expression in the Speyburn family which has also won the World Whiskies Award 2012 Gold-Medal. The Speyburn 25 Year Old is presented in a new premium case that is signed by the Speyburn Distillery Manager, Robert Anderson.
The Speyburn 25 Year Old is aged in American oak Fino sherry and ex-bourbon casks of the highest quality. It has a vibrant and bright aroma with rich lime, honey and lemon peel notes, accentuated by fragrant tropical fruit. The taste is sweet to start, then opens up with toffee, creamy vanilla and pink grapefruit flavors for a long and warming finish.
The packaging is presented with a new Speyburn bottle inside a silver wooden box alongside two engraved collapsible tasting cups. The bottle has a roundel logo which encompasses the salmon symbolic to the brand. The label is printed on a silver substrate, giving it a metallic look and feel.
“The Speyburn 25 Year Old forges the unique connection between elegance and the outdoors that has yet to be captured by the brand” said Pat Graney, President of International Beverage. “The sophistication of the new packaging and the flavors captured by this specialized aging process are sure to please all who try it.”
Speyburn is distilled in the famous Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands using the fresh, clear waters of the Granty Burn. The Burn is connected to the River Spey, which is known for its world-class salmon fishing and the invention of the spey casting method.
Limited quantities of Speyburn 25 Year Old will be available at select fine retailers and venues at a retail price of $315.
Speyburn Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky was first distilled on the 15th December 1897, the diamond jubilee year of Queen Victoria. To ensure that whisky was made in the jubilee year, men worked through the night in a heavy snowstorm in a still-house without windows, managing to bond one single barrel of 1897 Speyburn. Today, Speyburn continues to use the time-honored traditional distillation methods that created the single barrel of the 1897 vintage. Many of the original distillery fittings remain, and are still used, in this very traditional Malt Whisky distillery.
