Just 528 individually numbered bottles have been launched exclusively in Frankfurt Airport in partnership with Heinemann Duty Free.

As part of the distillery’s Single Cask Editions, The Glenlivet Kymah is said to convey a “commitment to craft production”.

Aged in a single ex-Sherry butt for 16 years, the bottling is named after the Kymah Burn, a tributary of the River Livet which runs through Speyside.

“We are very passionate about our Single Cask Editions range; each whisky highlights the subtle, complex and elegant style synonymous with The Glenlivet,” said Jessica Spence, senior consumer and digital marketing manager for Pernod Ricard Travel Retail Europe.

The Glenlivet Kymah will be feature in Frankfurt Airport alongside recently launched The Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso and The Glenlivet Master Distiller’s Reserve.

It will also be displayed in The Glenlivet’s dedicated travel retail area, encompassing a custom built pool table, sampling points and “sensory pods”.

We are delighted to have partnered with Pernod Ricard Travel Retail Europe in the creation of The Glenlivet Kymah Single Cask Edition,” said Claus Heinemann, co-owner of Gebr. Heinemann.

“As a loyal fan of The Glenlivet myself, I was honoured to be invited to The Glenlivet Distillery in 2014 to hand-select the single cask in which The Glenlivet Kymah was matured.”

Bottled at 60.1% abv, The Glenlivet Kymah carries an RRP of €249.
