Index representing the price movement of 100 of the most sought-after fine wines on the secondary market
Orbital is a brand new whisky expression launched by Whisky Magazine in March 2016 which truly celebrates the whiskies of the world by uniting them in one bottle. Each year, Whisky Magazine receives hundreds of samples and these have been blended with a fine aged grain whisky before being matured in a Pedro Ximinez cask.
With only 1104 bottles available of this limited edition release, Orbital really is an out of this world experience waiting to be discovered.
All profits from the production of every bottle of Orbital will be donated to Walking With The Wounded, a charity that supports the most vulnerable veterans to achieve independence through employment. Bottle No. 1 is destined for HRH Prince Harry, expedition patron of Walking With The Wounded.
Orbital tasting note: butterscotch, manuka honey, toffee apple, biscuits and subtle warming spices.
