Independent bottler That Boutique-y Whisky Company has released its first batch of Speyburn single malt, celebrating the company's 100th first batch. A special 'one-of-a-kind pimped-out' one litre bottle has also been created to celebrate the occasion.
The latest addition to TBWC's plethora of bottlings is a 7yo Speyburn single malt Scotch whisky. Coming in at 49.5% abv and coming in 50cl bottles, only 233 are available.
Fancy something a little bigger? The one-off litre bottle of the single malt will be auctioned to raise money for Malaria No More UK from the 17-24 July on Master of Malt. The bottle features hand-painted gold detail and also comes in a presentation box 'pimped' by Speyburn enthusiast Jan Birch of Drumnadrochit (Whisky Sponge readers will know), so get your bidding fingers ready.
'Reaching 100 individual lines is a significant milestone, but really only scratches the surface of the scope of TBWC’s ambitions,' said TBWC’s Ben Ellefsen. 'The fact that the 100th line is from Speyburn (and is hence, objectively the nectar of the gods) is frankly a delightful coincidence. And nothing more. Where’s my Martini?'
The notorious Whisky Sponge and Jan Birch, naturally, also provided their own comments, which are printed on the back label of the bottle. 'Lagavulin wishes it was the Speyburn of Islay,' said Whisky Sponge.
'Speyburn owes its unique flavour to the Victorian Salmon Cannon used in its production,' concluded unofficial Speyburn brand ambassador Jan Birch.
