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 expression is also the Campbeltown distillery’s first release to be introduced at a UK airport.
Distilled in April 1991 and bottled in August 2017 at a cask strength of 56.5% abv, the Glen Scotia Single Cask No. 857 offers layers of “honey and brown sugar with juicy pineapple and tangy orange peel”.
André de Almeida, managing director of Global Travel Retail at Loch Lomond Group, said: “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 GlenScotia distillery in Campbeltown, one of Scotland’s five Scotch whiskey-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 whiskey and the maritime influence of Campbeltown.”
