The West London based Bimber Distillery, has announced the launch of the second batch of releases from its Spirit of the Underground Collection.

The four new releases in the series which has been created in partnership with Transport for London, have been drawn from some of the distillery’s oldest stock laid down in 2016.

Bimber Spirit of the Underground Collection

The second batch of Bimber Spirit of the Underground Collection bottlings, are comprised of: Chancery Lane (57.8% ABV) matured in an ex-Madeira cask. London Bridge (58.7% ABV) matured in an ex-Port cask. Paddington (58.9% ABV) matured in an ex-PX Sherry cask. Victoria (58.2% ABV) matured in an ex-Rye cask.

The collection which launched in May 2021, will feature a total of 44 individual releases over a three-year period, features a selection of iconic single malt whiskies that celebrate the heritage and diversity of the distillery’s home city. With striking individual designs, each bottle presents a different Tube station on the London Underground network - the oldest underground passenger railway service in the world.

Each release features stunning iconography presenting a unique piece of London’s history, and comes adorned with an eye-catching label and packaging design that observes the significance of each station’s location.

Commenting on the launch, Matt McKay from Bimber, said: “Following a terrific reception earlier this year to the first four releases from The Spirit of the Underground, we’re thrilled to unveil the next stations that will be joining the Collection. For this second collaborative release with Transport for London we have selected four distinctive and exceptional casks from amongst our very finest. Each typifies our hand-crafted approach to whisky making, whilst at the same time offering an ever-broadening selection of flavour experiences with which to celebrate the history and diversity of our home – London.”

Limited in quantities, the second batch of Bimber Spirit of the Underground Collection bottlings, will be available later this month via a ballot on the Bimber website. RRP £125.00 per bottle.
