The West London based, Bimber Distillery has today announced the launch of its first pure malt whisky.
Bimber Apogee XII (46.3% ABV) is a 12 Year Old pure malt, comprised of single malt Scotch whiskies from the Highlands and Speyside, which were further matured in ex-bourbon casks that were previously used to age Bimber’s single malt whisky.

This latest Bimber release, comes presented in a custom glass bottle, which features a tactile, hammered glass that has been fashioned to imitate the surfaces of Bimber’s small copper pot stills.
Commenting on the launch Bimber’s Matt McKay, said: “We are delighted to unveil our first Apogee expression – and for it to join the ranks of Bimber’s growing offering of exceptional whiskies. It is no secret that as a craft distillery, our inventory of casks is growing, but is still relatively small. Apogee has been created as a response to the burgeoning demand for our products – both as a continually available expression and as an extension of our passion for the fine art of blending.”
Limited to an initial release of 25,000 bottles, Bimber Apogee XII, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £59.95.
