Chivas completes its Secret Speyside Collection with two new Caperdonich releases

These latest releases are said to represent part of three peated and three unpeated contributions from Caperdonich, which distilled its final single malt before closing in 2002. The rest of the collection of 18-30 year old whiskies, consists of three rare single malts each from the Glen Keith, Longmorn and Braes of Glenlivet distilleries.

Commenting on the launch, Laura Lung, Global Marketing Manager for Malts at Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail, said: “We are thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response to the Secret Speyside collection and at the strong appetite from travellers to find out more about these fabled distilleries. Supported by unique tasting events and in-airport activations, the goal when launching this curated selection of whiskies was to allow Scotch Single Malt enthusiasts the opportunity to not just sample some of the rarest liquid from the Speyside region, but to also learn about what makes this abundant area of Scotland so unique.”

She concluded by saying: “Whether for personal consumption or as a special gift to family and friends, Secret Speyside offers customers a truly unique and memorable experience, and these two final additions from Caperdonich provide a fitting finale to this prestigious collection.”

Caperdonich Peated 25 Year Old and Caperdonich Unpeated 30 Year Old, will be available later this month through global travel retail outlets, for the respective RRP's of $550.00 and $990.00.
