Berry Bros & Rudd, has today announced the launch of a new Glenrothes single malt whisky collection, comprised of expressions which have been finished in casks from some of the world’s finest wine estates.

The Glenrothes Wine Merchant’s Collection, is a new range of premium whiskies from the multi-award winning Speyside based distillery, which were distilled in 1992 and matured for more than two decades in hogshead casks.

Each of the whiskies were then finished in casks which formerly held wines from Ch√Ęteau de Beaucastel, Lustau and Ridge Vineyards, casks from port houses Warre’s and Graham’s, as well as ex rum casks from the St. Lucia Distillery.

After the whisky was transferred into the wine casks in 2014, a close eye has been kept until they were recently judged to be perfectly balanced and mature and ready for bottling. Unchillfiltered and natural in colour, all the whiskies in the Glenrothes Wine Merchant’s Collection, are bottled at cask strength.

Commenting on the launch, Ronnie Cox, Brands Heritage Director at Berry Bros & Rudd, said: “The Glenrothes Wine Merchant’s Collection is the result of combining the 300 year old lineage of Berry Bros. & Rudd with those of some of our most illustrious wine suppliers.”

The Glenrothes Wine Merchant’s Collection, will be available next month from specialist retailers. Each bottle in the collection will be available for a RRP of £200.00.
