Benriach veröffentlicht vier exklusive Malts für den Global Travel Retail

Die vier für den Duty Free Bereich vorgesehenen Single Malts sind attraktiv bepreist und ab Mai weltwelt erhältlich - in UK schon jetzt

Mit vier neuen und exklusiv für den Global Travel Retail produzierten Whiskys will man in der Destillerie Benriach der nun wieder wachsenden Bedeutung dieses Outlets Rechnung tragen: Zum Benriach Quarter Cask und dem Benriach Smoky Quarter Cask sowie dem Benriach Triple Distilled Ten gesellt sich auch der bislang älteste dreifach destillierte aus der Destillerie, der Benriach 22 Year Old Triple Distilled.

Die Preise für die vier ab jetzt in UK und ab Mai international erhältlichen Abfüllungen sind recht moderat gehalten: der 22 Jahre alte wird in UK für 129 Pfund über den Tresen gehen, die drei anderen Whiskys kosten zwischen 36 und 40 Pfund pro Flasche.

BENRIACH LAUNCHES EXCLUSIVE MALTS FOR GLOBAL TRAVEL RETAIL

Creative Speyside Distillery, Benriach, is known for marrying heritage and innovation. To showcase its long-standing tradition of distilling classic, peated and triple distilled whisky, it is launching four expressions specially for Global Travel Retail. The range includes Benriach Quarter Cask, Benriach Smoky Quarter Cask, Benriach Triple Distilled Ten and their oldest ever triple distilled expression, Benriach 22 Year Old Triple Distilled.

Benriach’s tradition of triple distilling small batches, a practice which is continued only once a year at the distillery, produces their most refined spirit style, enhanced by three cask maturation in both the 10 Year Old and 22 Year Old expressions.

Smaller bespoke casks have been used in the second maturation for Benriach Quarter Cask and Benriach Smoky Quarter Cask to elevate the fruit-forward character of the distillery. The smaller casks enable greater interaction between the wood and spirit to intensify maturation and deliver depth and richness of flavour.

Rachel Barrie, Master Blender at Benriach Distillery, said:

“As international travel will hopefully continue to open this year, whisky lovers will have the opportunity to sample this distinctive range of expressions available exclusively for Global Travel Retail.

“Our oldest triple distilled expression, Benriach 22 Year Old Triple Distilled, is a complex fruit and oak masterpiece, with rich layers of caramel mocha and morello cherry, overlaid with mellow nutty elegance and the exquisite richness of orange peel, red apple and date. Benriach Triple Distilled Ten is layered in glazed fruit, creamy vanilla and honey sweetness alongside vibrant toasted oak spice.

“The bespoke quarter casks used in both Benriach Quarter Cask and Benriach Smoky Quarter Cask gives each a very distinctive flavour profile. In Quarter Cask it creates layers of glazed orchard fruit and rich vanilla, finishing with notes of ripe barley and oak spice. Smoky Quarter Cask adds layers of ripe fruit, fresh wood smoke and spiced vanilla, with finishing notes of mellow smoke and nutty oak.”

Stephane Morizet, Marketing Director – Global Travel Retail, said:

“This exclusive portfolio offering is a powerful statement on how much Benriach firmly believes in the power and strategic role of travel retail. Our mission is to enrich travellers‘ journeys, and these beautiful expressions offer a wide and unique range of taste exploration for whisky lovers.”

The range is now available exclusively in UK airports, and from May 1st, 2022 worldwide.
