Fettercairn launches 2022's 16 Years Old single malt

Fettercairn Distillery has unveiled the latest release of its 16 Years Old single malt whisky.

The collection launched in 2020 as a series of limited-edition annual releases of 16-year-old single malt, each with their own recipes.

The 2022 release offers a taste of the Aberdeenshire distillery’s distinctive tropical house style, complemented by ageing in first-fill oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks and ex-bourbon barrels.

This year's 16 Years Old single malt is bottled at 46.4% ABV, without added colour or chill filtration.

Fettercairn's master whisky maker Gregg Glass said: "In creating this recipe, selecting these casks, I set out to further explore the boundaries of what we can achieve in our quest for true distinction whilst continuing to deliver on the tropical house character that defines Fettercairn.  

"Once again, the result is a very special, one-off creation that will never be repeated. The challenge was to fine-tune the balance of cask influence that would deliver the unique profile I was looking for. A unique drinking experience, which, with accentuated flavour characteristics, define Fettercairn.” 

Fettercairn 16 Years Old 2022 release will be available across Europe including France, UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium from July onwards, extending to global travel retail and key markets in Asia in 2023, at an RSP of £72 (the GTR edition will be in 1-litre formats with an RSP of £82.50).
