Rosebank 30 Year Old The Revival Chapter 1 exclusively for the Asian market.

Renowned for its production of exceptional Lowland single malt whiskies, the enigmatic Rosebank Distillery has consistently intrigued whisky aficionados. Over the last couple of years, it has unveiled exceedingly rare vintage editions, drawn from casks that were salvaged before the original distillery's closure.

Rosebank's extensive history was disrupted by the untimely closure of its gates in 1993. Following this, the distillery entered a lengthy slumber, remaining dormant. With its recent reawakening in 2023, Rosebank has now once again churned out its first batch of whisky after a hiatus of over three decades. To commemorate this momentous juncture in Rosebank's saga and herald the initiation of a new era, the distillery has introduced the 'The Revival Series' and this Series is set to unveil six distinct expressions in the forthcoming years.

Coming out in August this year, the first expression of Rosebank’s Revival Series – Rosebank 30 Year Old The Revival Chapter 1, this inaugural release is simply christened 'Chapter One', the 30-year single malt whisky has been exclusively crafted for the Asian market. This edition is bestowed with a limited production of merely 800 bottles worldwide, symbolising the resumption of Rosebank's legacy in a remarkable flourish.

This inaugural release is said to harmoniously meld the delicate floral bouquet born of the classic triple distillation process with the opulent depth evoked by the traditional worm tub condensers. The result, the distillery says, is an exquisite, timeless homage to Rosebank, unparalleled in its refinement.

The first expression released after the distillery’s restoration, also a rare treasure from the first year of the distillery’s rebirth, the 30-year Lowland single malt is said to be a beautiful combination of the feathery floral aroma from the classic triple distillation and the richness from the traditional worm tub condensers, creating a classic and unparalleled tribute to Rosebank.

The signature gold colour of Rosebank shines with an amber glow. The splendid floral nose spreads like a sea of blooming flowers, followed by the sweetness of melted cream and the subtle hints of nutmeg, interlaced with the sweetness of French fudge and the refreshing mint. Take a sip and experience the symphony of unleashed liveliness and lightness, topped with a blossom of floral aromas and delicious berries. The finish is a mixture of sweetness of citrus the refreshing zesty flavour of lemon peel, elegant out of this world, like a stroll in the sea of flowers.
