Glenrothes 19yo launches in World Duty Free
Edrington-owned Scotch brand The Glenrothes has unveiled the second bottling from its Exclusive Single Cask Series in travel retail.
Available at World Duty Free shops and World of Whiskies stores across Heathrow Airport in London, the Glenrothes Exclusive Single Cask is limited to 274 bottles.
The expression is drawn from a Bourbon-seasoned American oak cask, #8190, filled on 21 June 21 1999. It is bottled at cask strength 54.4% ABV.
The 19-year-old Exclusive Single Cask Edition is said to have notes of aromatic spices and rich cherries.
Jeremy Speirs, managing director, Edrington Europe, Middle East and Africa travel retail, said: “Based on the incredible response to the launch of our first Exclusive Single Cask for World Duty Free, it’s clear that this format resonates strongly with consumers seeking out unique, collectible products in travel retail.
“We’re delighted to partner once again with World Duty Free and present the second exclusive bottling of The Glenrothes in its excellent World of Whiskies stores.”
David de Miguel, global head of liquor at Dufry, owner of World Duty Free, added: “Following the huge success of the first Exclusive Single Cask release earlier this year, we anticipate that the second release will generate an equally strong interest among whisky consumers.
“This unique type of product generates real excitement in our stores and underscores our mission to provide travellers with the opportunity to take home exceptional products.”
The Glenrothes Exclusive Single Cask is priced at £185 (US$243) from World Duty Free stores.
