The GlenDronach Distillery, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition vintage bottling, in partnership with Marv Films and Twentieth Century Fox, to celebrate the release of ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’.

The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 (48.2% ABV) is a 25 Year Old, sherry cask matured, single malt whisky, which was created by GlenDronach’s Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie.

The 1991 Vintage, which marks the birth year of Kingsman character Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin, and personally selected by Film Director, Matthew Vaughn, is said to deliver notes of black grapes, antique leather and maple leaf tobacco on the nose. Followed by notes of Victoria plum, Seville orange, Old Jamaican ginger cake and sticky black treacle on the palate.

Each of the special individually hand-numbered whisky bottles, comes presented in bespoke, luxury packaging, which features the signatures of both the Whisky Maker and Film Director, along with a custom Kingsman gold metal charm.

Commenting on the launch, GlenDronach’s Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie, said: “It took over a quarter of a century for The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition to come of age, matured in sherry casks from birth. As we say at the distillery, ‘Cask is King’ and this is evident in the taste experience of The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage, which is richly sherried, elegant and full bodied to the last. We hope you agree, it is whisky fit for a Kingsman.”

This is the second whisky related release to tie in with the latest Kingsman film. Back in May Brown-Forman, the owners of GlenDronach, announced the launch of a new bottling from its Old Forester bourbon brand; Statesman.

The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991, will be available next month from specially selected retailers, for a RRP of £550.00.
