Commenting on the launch, Ronnie Cox, said: “Over the 30 years of working with this Speyside distillery I have the enviable task of nosing several hundred casks, and in my view, these seven casks stand alone as examples of supremacy. I didn’t need the keys to the distillery, a bung remover and a nosing glass.  I had had my eye on these casks for many years and I count myself as incredibly fortunate to be able to select these whiskies to bottle under my name.”

The Ronnie’s Reserve range, is now available directly instore and online from Berry Bros. & Rudd, except for the Ronnie’s Reserve Tempus Fugit 1968 Cask No. 13497 bottling, which will be available from June.
