Bowmore and Aston Martin create 22YO
Scotch whisky brand Bowmore has collaborated with Aston Martin to unveil the second release of its Masters’ Selection series: a 22-year-old single malt.
The second bottling in the Master’s Selection range captures ‘synchronised creativity’, bringing together whiskies matured in American oak hogsheads and Sherry butts.
The whiskies were distilled in 1997 and 2000 respectively.
The 22-year-old has notes of honey, peach and apricot, then opens up to flavours of tobacco and clove.
It follows the launch of a 21-year-old whisky, the first Master’s Selection release, in November 2021.
Ron Welsh, master blender at Bowmore, said: “We talk about shared synergies between the contrasting worlds of Bowmore and Aston Martin and this is what truly defines the relationship Marek Reichman, chief creative officer at Aston Martin, and I have formed.
“We have relished in the opportunity to share experiences, ideas and thoughts from each other’s world’s, listening and learning from the inherent skill, knowledge and creativity we both possess. In collaborating as guardians of our respective legacies, we recognise the honour bestowed upon us.”
Bowmore Masters’ Selection Edition 2 is available in key global markets including UK, Germany, Canada, the US, and China, for RRP £390 (US$450), excluding VAT.
The collaboration also saw the release of a 52-year-old single malt in a limited edition ‘futuristic vessel’ in June this year.
The two paired up again in August to release the second iteration of its Designed by Aston Martin collection in global travel retail.
