Ian Macleod Distillers has expanded its global travel retail portfolio with the introduction of a cask-strength Scotch whisky, ‘As We Get It’ Highland Single Malt.
‘As We Get It’ is named to reflect the whisky’s uninterrupted journey from cask to bottle, being bottled as it is at cask strength without chill filtration and with natural colour. It will be bottled in small batches of 15–20 casks, with evolving flavour profiles and variable ABVs (expected to range from 58–63%) between batches. Each new batch will be presented in new-look packaging with batch-specific numbering on the label.
The new release forms part of Ian Macleod’s new travel retail-exclusive speciality malt collection, which also includes The White Cask Speyside Single Malt, Shielding Highland Single Malt, and The Six Isles Blended Malt Whisky.
“We are thrilled to introduce ‘As We Get It’ and its GTR-exclusive batch bottlings to the travel retail market,” says Ian Macleod Distillers’ global travel retail director William Ovens. “This is the only product of its kind in Ian Macleod Distillers’ travel retail range and will make a valuable addition to any whisky collection. We are confident whisky lovers will react well to this uncomplicated, straight from the cask proposition and highly flavoursome whisky. ‘As We Get It’ does what it says on the tin / label!”
‘As We Get It’ Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky has a duty-free RRSP of GB£60 for a 70cl bottle and will be available to ship from January.
