Official Scotland Football Team Whisky - Bowmore 22 Year Old, Glen Elgin 20 Year Old, Scottish National Team Scotch Blended Malt Whisky and Blended Whisky.

As the Scotland national football team gets down to some serious preparations for the delayed Euro 2020 competition with a friendly against the Netherlands in the Algarve, Portugal tonight, the Scottish whisky fans amongst you may be interested in getting yourselves kitted out with a special edition official Scotland national football team whisky from Gleann MÚr Spirits.

Edinburgh based independent bottler, Gleann MÚr Spirits, has bottled four whiskies in partnership with the Scottish national football team which mark Scotlandís reappearance for the first time in 23 years at a major football tournament, the World Cup 1998 was Scotland's last major football tournament, 23 years has certainly been a long wait for us Scottish football fans to say the least but hopefully we will have something to toast in the coming weeks with the new official Scotland football team whiskies.

Three of the official Scotland football team whisky line-up are currently available to order online from the Gleann MÚr Spirits website and the star of the official Scotland whisky line-up is a Bowmore 22 year old which is available to pre-order.

The four official Scotland football team whiskies are:

  • Scottish National Team Scotch Blended Whiskysky
    Without giving away too much of their team secrets Gleann MÚr tells me that this is a blend of Highland and Islay single malt whiskies combined with Scotch grain whisky, they describe it as a winning combination of strength and style, with warming tones of toffee, vanilla, pears and spiced oak. Non chill filtered and naturally coloured and it has a very drinkable price tag of £25 for a 70cl bottle.
     
  • Scottish National Team Scotch Blended Malt Whisky
    This is a mix of 100% Speyside single malts, described as rich in lemon shortbread, dried fruit and toasted oak flavours. Non chill filtered and naturally coloured it has a price tag of £39 for a 70cl bottle.
     
  • Glen Elgin 20 Year Old Scotch Single Malt Single Cask No. 2842
    Lining up at the heart of the Scotch whisky team of Rare Find superstars is this 20 year old of prodigious talent, it is described as a smooth and classy dram combining sweetly satisfying Scottish honey, warm spice and butter toffee. Matured in a refill bourbon cask, non chill filtered and naturally coloured it has been bottled at 50.6% ABV. It has a price tag of £75 for a 70cl bottle which is a decent price for a mature dram of this age.
     
  • Bowmore 22 Year Old Scotch Single Malt Single Cask No. 353892892
    This limited edition Bowmore single cask is billed as the star of the Scotland whisky team line-up. This golden dram was first filled into refill sherry Cask No. 353892 on 24 June 1998, the day after Scotland's final fixture of the World Cup against Morocco, a painful 3-0 defeat in St Etienne, France. After decades of hurt, it will now be bottled the day before Scotlandís opening fixture of Euro 2020 against the Czech Republic on 14 June 2021 at Hampden Park, Glasgow.

    Described as big, bold and salty on the nose with a hint of sweet autumnal peat and baked apples in the mouth, the sweet peat develops into a sugary cereal layer with a softly spice, gentle ash and a dulcet phenolic finish.

    It will be bottled non chill filtered and naturally coloured at 52.7% ABV. Only 280 individually numbered bottles will be made available, giving Scottish football & whisky fans an opportunity to own a unique piece of Scottish footballing history. It is currently available to pre-order for £499 so you will need deep pockets if you want to celebrate Scotland's wins with this one.

You will find all four of the official Scotland football team whisky line-up available to order online from the Gleann MÚr Spirits website and they are offering free delivery for orders over £50 and who knows, hopefully a few bottles will be opened on the 18th June to toast our victory over the auld enemy at Wembley, of course if you are an English Scotch whisky fan feel free to buy a bottle to drown your sorrows on the 18th June.
