Lidl launches trio of Ben Bracken single malts

19th May, 2017 by Amy Hopkins

Discount supermarket chain Lidl has released a new trio of Scotch whiskies under its Ben Bracken range, showcasing liquid from Speyside, Islay, and the Highlands.

The Ben Bracken trio uses whisky from unnamed distilleries

Launched ahead of World Whisky Day on 20 May, the trio brings Lidl’s total number of own-label Scotch whiskies to eight.

Each variant in the no-age-statement trio is bottled at 40% abv and is priced at £17.49.

“We’re incredibly proud of our whisky range and with World Whisky Day approaching this is the perfect time to release our new range of Ben Bracken single malt Scotches,“ said Paul McQuade, head of Lidl’s Scottish buying team

“The range reflects the diverse taste of Scotch whisky through the three different whisky regions and offers everyone, from established whisky fans to the newcomer to whisky, something to enjoy this World Whisky Day.“

In March this year, Lidl appointed bartender and author Tristan Stephenson as consultant for its spirits range.

      I bought a bottle of Islay single malt in Lidls in Hinckley and it was UNdrinkable, The worst Whisky I have ever tasted.

    is this whisky also available in the Netherlands?

  3. Nik says:

    Just received the green labelled single malt. For the money, I am so far impressed. I have yet to drink any quantity of it, so it may prove to be headache quality – time will tell. What do you think?
