Leading distiller, blender and bottler, Douglas Laing & Co, today announce the second ever limited edition release under their award-winning Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky brand: The Gauldrons Cask Strength Edition.
Joining the core expression which launched in 2017 and The Gauldrons Sherry Edition which launched as a limited release earlier this year, the Cask Strength Edition is strictly limited to no more than 3,120 bottles. A marriage of Single Cask Single Malts exclusively from Campbeltown, the Blended Malt has been bottled at a Natural Cask Strength of 53.4% alcohol and is proudly offered without colouring or chill-filtration, in line with the Douglas Laing family’s “As Natural As It Gets” ethos.
The Gauldrons is said to be “inspired by the eponymous dark sandy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores” and literally means “bay of storms”. This latest release is said to “pay homage to the elusive region by encapsulating its dark, mysterious allure – a positioning which is particularly relevant around the forthcoming Halloween season”. Presented in a sleek black bottle with a deep purple wax seal and a glow in the dark label for premium and seasonal appeal.
Commenting on this latest bottling, Cara Laing, Marketing Director, said:
“We’re delighted to launch the second ever limited edition for our Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky brand! Bottled at a Natural Cask Strength, the resulting spirit reveals an exceptional combination of smoky sweetness and maritime saltiness – a dram we can’t wait to share with the whisky aficionados of the world. The standout glow in the dark label was a particularly fun piece of innovation and brings an exciting new dimension to the bottling. The phenomenal spirit quality and creative packaging make this new release the ultimate dram to be enjoyed this spooky Halloween season and is one we are incredibly proud of.”
The Gauldrons Cask Strength Edition will be available online and from specialist spirits retailers in Europe, America and Asia from early October 2022 and is expected to retail at £60 / €70.
