These latest releases are said to be inspired by Bowmore Distillery’s No.1 Vaults, the world’s oldest Scotch maturation warehouse.

We are pleased to present this exceptional new Bowmore range, exclusively to travel retail.”

He went on to say: “Matured in the finest oak casks, these age statement whiskies have been selected for their unique character, allowing us to bring Bowmore’s legendary No.1 Vaults to life for the discerning traveller around the world.”

All three of the new age stated bottlings from the Islay based distillery, will be available through travel retail in April. RRP’s (tbc).
