This latest Glen Scotia bottling, has been released to celebrate last month’s Campbeltown Malts Festival, the annual event which showcases all the single malts from the region.
Hundreds of visitors from all over the world took part in tours, tastings and more at Glen Scotia, as part of its packed programme during this year’s festival. Highlights included tastings at its historic dunnage warehouse and two sold-out whisky dinners held at the Ardshiel and Ugadale Hotels.
Commenting on the launch, Iain McAlister, Distillery Manager at Glen Scotia, said: “Our new limited edition rum cask single malt offers whisky fans something very special, bringing together the maritime influences associated with Campbeltown and the sweet, tropical notes of rum – another sea-faring spirit. As someone who was born and bred in Campbeltown, I am very proud of our distinctive history and heritage. I hope whisky lovers have fun discovering our latest exceptional single malt.”
Limited to 9,500 bottles, Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019 Rum Cask Finish 2003, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £77.00.
