GLENKINCHIE The Floral Treasure 27 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2023
Every year since 2001, Diageo has unveiled its Special Releases – a limited-edition series of highly collectable and sought-after Scotch whiskies exploring the breadth and depth of their portfolio. What makes them so exciting is Diageo’s unparalleled ability to cherry-pick anything from a lost barrel produced at a ‘ghost’ distillery to an experimental expression from a world-renowned brand. These are one-of-a-kind bottlings that are not to be missed…
For 2023, The Special Releases are inspired by crafts and cultures around the world. Titled Spirited Xchange, the highly collectible and unique collection takes us on a journey through Diageo’s world-famous portfolio with cultural collaborations for unforgettable flavours and tastes.
One of the oldest bottlings to date, Glenkinchie’s The Floral Treasure Special Release is matured in refilled American and European Oak barrels and butts. This stunning single malt unveils magnificent floral bouquets for a flavour profile that’s rich and bright as a delicate masterpiece.
Founded in 1825 on the outskirts of Edinburgh by John and George Rate, Glenkinchie represents one of only a handful of distilleries in the Lowland region. It’s thought that it was originally known as the Milton Distillery, before being renamed in the 1837, with ‘Kinchie’ being a corruption of De Quincy – the name of the original landowners. Glenkinchie is a distillery that would change the face of Scotch forever, because it was one of the five Lowland distillers that would form Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd, which would then merge with Distillers Company Ltd and eventually become Diageo as we know it today. The majority of Glenkinchie’s spirit was used for world famous blends such as Haig, Dimple, Dewar’s and Johnnie Walker, but in the late 1980s it became one of Diageo’s Classic Malts, rocketing it into the limelight. Renowned for its soft, approachable style and grassy, appley and nutty character, Glenkinchie is one we always recommend for those who are new to the world of Scotch.
