Auchentoshan unveils travel retail exclusive

Auchentoshan, Scotland’s only triple distilled single malt Scotch whisky, has released a limited edition of the 1975 expression exclusively to travel retail. Just 500 bottles exist of this cask strength non-chill filtered whisky that has been aged in north American bourbon casks for over 38 years.

Following on from the success of the first batch released in the domestic market in 2011, this second release of the vintage has been matured for an additional year giving it its particularly fresh, dewy fruity qualities. It becomes part of a series of vintage releases from the late 1970s including the 1979 sherry matured and the 1974 bourbon matured.

The packaging

Presented in a premium slate grey double fronted box, both the carton and the bottle deliberately retain a subtlety and understated luxury best reserved for higher aged vintage releases. Once opened the box reveals a stunning design using barrel staves. Labelling is minimal with both the name and label appearing slimmer to reveal the liquid as the true hero. The neck of the bottle is also clear exposing the natural cork. The date of bottling is written on each of the bottles.

There will be 500 bottles available globally in a range of international airports priced at £500+ with an ABV of 45.6%.
