Speyburn 16 Year Old Travel Retail Exclusive

25th September 2018
Speyburn adds a third single malt whisky to its travel retail exclusive line-up, the Speyburn 16 Year Old.

Speyburn Hopkins Reserve, 10 Year Old and new Speyburn 16 Year Old travel retail exclusive whisky.

Following the successful launch of the travel exclusive Speyburn Hopkins Reserve and 10 Year Old whiskies the distillery has announced that they are adding a third expression to its exclusive traveller range, the Speyburn 16 Year Old.

The Speyburn 16 Year Old expression is set to be unveiled at the Tax Free World Association World Exhibition and Conference in Cannes in October.

Wholly matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for sixteen years in a traditional dunnage warehouse in the secluded Speyside valley that Speyburn founder John Hopkins chose over 120 years ago. The result, they tell me, is a liquid bursting with notes of zesty fruit and creamy vanilla. Sweet pears and tropical pineapple give way to hints of white chocolate and honey, all wrapped together with a gentle spice.

James Bateman, Global Travel Retail Director, commented: "The new travel retail-exclusive 16 Years Old is the perfect complement to the existing two TR-exclusive whiskies, Hopkins Reserve and 10 Years Old. Travellers are now offered a complete range of expressions that cater to different palates and drinking occasions with Speyside character at the heart of each expression.

"International Beverage views travel retail as a distinct global market, and it is important to us to support that channel with exclusives such as this. Single malt Scotch whisky continues to gain upward sales momentum around the world, and the travel retail platform is the perfect place to reach anyone interested in these whiskies from travellers just embarking on their single malt journey to whisky aficionados looking to add to their collection."

Speyburn 16 Year Old is bottled exclusively for the global traveller at a strength of 43% ABV, presented in a 1 litre bottle with an RRP of 72.00/ US $85.00.

If you have no travel plans in the near future you can still find the current Speyburn domestic core range of whiskies available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
