Big Peat unveils All Islay Scotch bottling

6th September, 2016 by Amy Hopkins

Douglas Laing & Co has released a new Christmas edition of its Big Peat whisky, featuring liquid from all active distilleries on Islay, plus the closed Port Ellen site.


The Big Peat Christmas edition for 2016 is a marriage of whiskies from all of Islay’s active distilleries

The Big Peat All Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is bottled at a cask strength of 54.6% abv and without caramel colouring or chill-filtration.

While Big Peat whisky is usually a marriage of liquid from Ardbeg, Bowmore, Caol Ila and Port Ellen, this latest limited edition contains whisky from all of Islay’s nine active distilleries.

Its packaging feature the image of ‘Big Peat’ dressed as Father Christmas with nine stockings hanging across his fireplace – representing the nine distilleries on the island of Islay.

“Big Peat’s annual Christmas release has become a hotly anticipated bottling by friends of our peaty Ileach fisherman across the globe,” said Jenny Rogerson, marketing manager at Douglas Laing & Co.

“We’re more excited than ever to reveal this year’s limited edition, an undisputedly innovative product in terms of both spirit and packaging.”

Just 2,500 the Big Peat Christmas edition for 2016 will be available globally through whisky specialists from September 2016 at an RRP of £50.00.

Last month, Douglas Laing & Co launched Big Peat’s Edinburgh Edition to coincide with the city’s Fringe Festival.
