The Tomatin Distillery has today announced the release of a rare 35 Year Old blended Scotch whisky, as part of its Antiquary whisky brand.

The Antiquary 35 Year Old (46% ABV) is a limited release of just 800 bottles and pays homage to its founders, John & William Hardie, who began their quest to create the perfect blended Scotch whisky in 1880, using only the finest and rarest Scottish malts.

The Antiquary 35 Year Old

Crafted from some of Scotland’s most outstanding malt and grain whiskies, all of which have been matured for over thirty five years, The Antiquary 35 Year Old is said to deliver notes of honey, mixed berries, stewed apples, creamy vanilla, oaky spice and wood polish on the nose, followed by notes of rich caramel, sweet pastry, mixed tropical fruits, polished leather, old wood and fresh citrus notes on the palate.

Commenting on the new release, Stephen Bremner, Sales Director at Tomatin, said: “Following a brand refresh earlier this year, we have seen growing interest in the Antiquary whiskies in both existing and new markets. Much like the original recipe created by the Hardie brothers back in 1888, this 35 Year old is a truly remarkable blended Scotch whisky of which the founders themselves would be immensely proud.”

The Antiquary 35 Year Old, will be available from specialist retailers later this month for a RRP of £299.99.
