Beam Suntory, has today announced the launch of a new Bowmore expression in collaboration with Aston Martin.

Bowmore Masters Selection 21 Year Old (61.8% ABV) is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky, comprised of whiskies matured in first fill Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, along with a ‘Golden Ratio’ of other undisclosed Bowmore casks, some aged over 35 years.

Imagined and defined by two Masters; Bowmore Master Whisky Blender Ron Welsh and Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman, Bowmore Masters’ Selection, is said to bridge the two distinct worlds in a powerful, yet inspiring way.

For Bowmore, proportions define character and shape flavour combinations; from cask selection and age to blending. The ‘Golden Ratio’ – the mathematical ratio found in nature that creates aesthetically pleasing compositions, sits at the heart of the design of every Aston Martin.

Commenting on the news, Ron Welsh, Bowmore Master Blender, said: “For the first time with this whisky, we have adopted the Golden Ratio to inspire each of the elements bringing their own unique flavours and selecting the optimal casks to forge the desired character, taking inspiration from Marek and his team.  What seems totally contrasting is, in fact, perfectly balanced and proportionate. Working with Marek has given me a new lens from which to explore whisky making.  This whisky serves as a celebration of our unified knowledge and experience; our shared passions, values and ideas.”

Bowmore Masters Selection 21 Year Old, will be available later this month from select specialist retailers, for a RRP of £300.00.
