Speyside distillery Craigellachie has released a limited edition 33-year-old single malt exclusively in travel retail with a £2,000 price tag.
Only 1,700 bottles of the new expression will be available worldwide, launched initially in World Duty Free stores in UK airports including London Heathrow, Stansted, Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Availability will soon follow at Dufry stores in European airports, before the single malt is released in select retailers in Asia Pacific airports this summer.
Non-chill-filtered and free from caramel colouring, Craigellachie 33-year-old is bottled at 46% abv, and is described as a ‘muscular’ whisky with ‘sulphury aromas, cereal complexity and exotic fruits’.
The latest release follows Craigellachie 31-year-old’s recent accolade of ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2017.
