Glen Scotia launches GTR single cask

Glen Scotia Distillery, Campbeltown, is set to launch a limited edition Glen Scotia Single Cask release in partnership with World Duty Free and Edinburgh Airport.

Just 204 bottles of the 26-year-old Glen Scotia Single Cask No. 857 will be available at the World of Whiskies store in Edinburgh Airport. The Glen Scotia Single Cask is also the Campeltown distillery’s first release to be introduced at a UK airport.

Glen Scotia’s partnership with Edinburgh Airport and World Duty Free who own and operate the specialist World of Whiskies stores, follows successful sales of parent company Loch Lomond Group’s Loch Lomond Global Travel Retail (GTR) Scotch whisky range at World of Whiskies stores.

Claire Branagan, non-beauty trading manager, World Duty Free at Edinburgh Airport, says: “It is very exciting to be offering this limited edition Glen Scotia Single Cask No. 857 bottling to our World of Whiskies customers at Edinburgh Airport, especially as this is the first time the brand has been made available at a UK airport.

“With just 204 bottles available, the Glen Scotia Single Cask No. 857 offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a slice of Campbeltown’s whisky heritage.”

André de Almeida, managing director of Global Travel Retail at Loch Lomond Group, says: “We’re pleased to have created the Glen Scotia Single Cask No. 857 in partnership with Edinburgh Airport and World Duty Free. It is a true showcase of the distinctive character and craftsmanship offered by our Glen Scotia distillery in Campbeltown, one of Scotland’s five Scotch whisky producing regions.

“Single cask bottlings are very special and are only undertaken with select partners. Edinburgh Airport and World Duty Free now have something unique to offer to their customers and I hope travelers visiting Scotland will enjoy discovering both our Glen Scotia Single Cask Scotch whisky and the maritime influence of Campbeltown.”

Richard Townsend, Retail & Property director for Edinburgh Airport, says: “Whisky is just one of the many things that Scotland is famous for and we are delighted to be able to offer our passengers this exclusive bottle of what is our national drink. With so many people passing through Scotland’s busiest airport, we are excited that visitors and locals alike have the opportunity to buy a unique expression of this fantastic single malt Scotch whisky.”
