Diageo, has announced the launch of its third limited-edition Prima and Ultima Collection, which features bottlings from Brora and Port Ellen.
The 2022 Prima and Ultima Collection, is comprised of 8 rare single malt Scotch whiskies, which this year were selected by Dr Craig Watson, one of Diageo’s Master Blenders.
Dr Craig’s experience spans more than 13 years, but more recently he has played a fundamental role in the restoration of the Brora spirit and overseeing new releases from Port Ellen. His expertise in nurturing and restoring the rare spirits from two of Diageo’s most magnificent whiskies has led him to develop an unparalleled knowledge of the distilleries and their casks.
