Inspired by the people of Mull’s long-standing history of working with the land that surrounds them, this latest expression draws on the distillery’s affinity to the island and the crofting industry that has influenced the island as we know it today.
Tobermory 25 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of freshly baked bread, candied orange peel, butterscotch, cinnamon spice and dusting of cocoa on the nose. Followed by notes of blackcurrant jam, peaches, lemon peel, honeyed almonds, coconut and a touch of mint on the palate.
In addition to the release, Tobermory has announced a partnership with award-winning wildlife filmmaker, Gordon Buchanan, who will be working with the distillery as an Island Ambassador, to preserve and promote the Isle of Mull.
Gordon, who grew up on Mull, has travelled all over the world capturing an array of animals and environments , but credits his home as to where he first fell in love with nature.
Commenting on the launch, Brendan McCarron, Master Distiller at Tobermory Distillery, said: “We are so proud to introduce Tobermory 25 to the world. A wonderfully fruity and well-rounded liquid, drinkers can expect a true taste of Mull with every dram. Our hand-crafted Hebridean Series really champions the little island we call home, drawing inspiration on its unique history and heritage to shape our expressions. The 25-year-old is a real homage to Mull’s crofting history, and draws parallels on the skill and ingenuity that goes into working with the land around us.”
He went onto say: “We’re really excited to welcome and partner with Gordon as Island Ambassador. We have a shared passion for Mull, the land, the community, the wildlife. We’re committed to work together to protect and preserve our beautiful island, ensuring it’s looked after for years to come.”
Limited to 5,298 bottles, Tobermory 25 Year Old, is now available from Berry Bros and Rudd, for a RRP of £345.00.
