Scotch whisky specialist Douglas Laing & Co, has today announced the launch of the first expression from a new limited-edition Spiritualist series, within its Old Particular range of single cask Scotch whiskies.

Old Particular – Balance Edition (53.2% ABV) is a 14 Year Old Islay single malt whisky, which has been matured in a single hogshead.

Inspired by the global “mindfulness” movement, the family firm says its Spiritualist series is offered to those who are actively seeking some time out from hectic daily lives and investing time in moments of tranquillity. The concept is brought to life on the single cask Scotch whisky packaging by a mesmerising, whimsical, bespoke illustration, in island-blue colourways.

Commenting on the launch, Cara Laing, Director of Whisky at Douglas Laing, said: “Now more than ever, we need to consciously take time out for some calm and solitude, taking a moment to rest and recharge. Our Spiritualist Series “Balance” bottling offers a departure from the chaos; the ying to the daily yang. From one of our favourite heavily peated Distilleries on Islay, this archetypal Islay Single Malt serves up a rich, earthy peat character balanced by sweet smoke and honeyed barley. Best served with time to dwell, linger and contemplate.”

Old Particular – Balance Edition, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £129.99.
