Drambuie to unveil the Jacobite limited edition whiskey collection
Only a true connoisseur knows the value and art of fine drinking, and therefore knows the value of the world-known whiskey brands. One such brand is Drambuie, known for its exotic and rare blends in premium whiskeys that are prepared from aged malt whisky, heather honey and a secret blend of herbs and spices. Such an exclusive taste will be launched at the Tax Free World Association exhibition in Cannes, when the company will present its new ultra-premium offering for duty-free and travel-retail channel. The collection is known as The Jacobite Collection—The Spirit of ’45 and is limited to only 150 presentation boxes.
Known for its secret recipe, Drambuie special edition whiskey is bottled in a hand-blown crystal decanter that holds a blend of 45-year-old whiskies. The liquor is decorated in a solid wood presentation box which contains hand-etched crystal replica of the Spottiswoode Amen glass and a large crystal stopper for the decanter. The details of the history of the Jacobite rebellion, Drambuie are given along with the bottle in a letter-pressed hand-bound 32-page leather booklet written by the whisky author Ian Buxton.
The crystal decanter is inspired by a mid-18th century design, which has impression of the crown pattern and is adorned with decorative scrollwork adding to the premium positioning. The prominent letter ‘A’ that stands for ‘Amen’ is carried through the design concept and also appears on the crystal stopper.
The liquor has notes of vanilla, green apples and cut grass blended together with herbs and honey with mild taste of toffee, liquorice, fennel and cardamom. The product is a true taste of elegance as Tim Dewey, Global Marketing Director for The Drambuie Liqueur Co, said;
“Over the past few years, Drambuie has concentrated on developing the ‘House of Drambuie’. Creating a wider range of products has allowed us to respond directly to the consumer appetite for new, clearly differentiated Drambuie products at different price points.”
This, with a limited sample, will be available at Drambuie Liqueur Company stand at Cannes TFWA, Riviera Village, stand RF9. The Jacobite Collection will be released, each retailing for £3,500 ($5,780) only, at the selected international travel-retail and duty-free outlets.
