Whyte & Mackay, has announced the launch of the third release in its Fettercairn Distillery’s Warehouse 2 Collection.

This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to showcase the distillery’s tropical house style, which originates from the distinctive copper cooling ring distillation process, with an added flair of soft, sweet spice.
The Warehouse Collection celebrates the talent, passion and commitment of the distillery team, coupled with the vision of Gregg Glass, Master Whisky Maker, in seeking unusual and interesting casks to craft these unconventional small batch releases. Limited in number and availability, the Collection has already captured the imagination of both collectors and whisky drinkers with its striking look and clear purpose.
Commenting on the launch, Gregg Glass, said: “With expectation high following the popularity of the first two releases in the Collection, we knew we needed to deliver something special with this third release, without compromising the approach we’ve been striving to adopt. As such, when personally hand selecting casks for this edition, I wanted to push the boundaries further to create a beautifully balanced single malt which delivered both freshness and complexity in character. I believe Batch No. 003 is another true one off for Fettercairn.”
Limited to 9,600 bottles, Fettercairn Warehouse 2 Batch No. 003, will be available from specialist retailers later next month, for the RRP of £60.00.
