GLEN SCOTIA LAUNCHES TWO NEW UK AIRPORT EXCLUSIVE BOTTLINGS

The Loch Lomond Group, has announced the launch of two new UK Airport exclusive expressions, from its Glen Scotia single malt Scotch whisky range.

Glen Scotia 1832 (46% ABV) is a non-age statement peated single malt whisky, which was matured in American oak barrels, before being finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks. Glen Scotia 16 Year Old (46% ABV) was matured in American oak barrels.

The Glen Scotia distillery, which has a history dating back to 1832, is located in Campbeltown, one of Scotland’s five Scotch whisky producing regions. In the Victorian age Campbeltown was known as the ‘whisky capital of the world’ and was home to more than 30 distilleries. Today Glen Scotia is one of just three surviving local distilleries and is the only representative from the region in World Duty Free’s stores which are located in 22 airports across the UK.

The partnership with World Duty Free, follows the release of a limited-edition Glen Scotia 26 Year Old single cask expression, at Edinburgh Airport in 2017.

Commenting on the news, André de Almeida, Managing Director of Global Travel Retail at Loch Lomond Group, said: “We’re very excited to be introducing Glen Scotia in partnership with World Duty Free. The Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown whisky alongside the classic Glen Scotia 16 Year Old single malt, will provide a true taste of the distillery’s distinctive and authentic character. The launch forms part of our ambitious worldwide roll-out of our GTR range and marks a significant milestone for Glen Scotia, as it’s the first time the brand will be available in airports right across the UK.”

Glen Scotia 1832 and Glen Scotia 16 Year Old, will be available in 1 litre bottles, next month from UK World Duty Free outlets, for the respective RRP’s of £52.00 and £75.00.
