Campbeltown distillery Glen Scotia has added a 25-year-old expression to its core range at this week’s Campbeltown Malts Festival.
Bottled at 48.8% abv and non-chill-filtered, Glen Scotia 25-year-old was matured in American oak, and married in first-fill Bourbon casks for 12 months before bottling.
‘For many years, trade has come through this port town, bringing fruits and spices from all over the world on its salty sea breezes. I wanted the liquid to reflect this.’
Glen Scotia 25-year-old will be available for £250 for a 70cl bottle, and comes in an oak case engraved with the Campbeltown co-ordinates.
Glen Scotia is one of only three remaining distilleries in Campbeltown, which was once known as ‘Whisky City’ and was home to more than 30 distilleries during the 19th century.
