Bimber Distillery launches Apogee XII pure malt whisky
London’s Bimber Distillery today released “Apogee XII” – a 12-year-old, premium “pure malt” whisky that has been elevated through an additional maturation in ex-Bimber casks. Created as a celebration of the fine art of blending, Apogee XII whisky offers flawless balance with additional layers of flavour and complexity derived from the vivid, fruit and spice-forward character of the ex-Bimber casks.
To create Apogee, Bimber sourced some of the finest single malt whiskies from both the Highlands and Speyside. These whiskies were matured for a minimum of 12 years before being enhanced further through skilful, meticulous blending and an additional maturation in ex-bourbon casks that were previously used to age Bimber’s award-winning single malt whisky.
Bottled at 46.3% ABV with no colouring or chill-filtration, Apogee is presented in a striking, custom glass bottle – which features a tactile, hammered glass that has been fashioned to imitate the surfaces of Bimber’s small copper pot stills.
Commenting on the milestone release, Bimber Distillery spokesperson Matt McKay said “We are delighted to unveil our first Apogee expression – and for it to join the ranks of Bimber’s growing offering of exceptional whiskies. It is no secret that as a craft distillery, our inventory of casks is growing, but is still relatively small. Apogee has been created as a response to the burgeoning demand for our products – both as a continually available expression and as an extension of our passion for the fine art of blending.
The initial release of 25,000 bottles will be available from November onwards from specialist retailers worldwide at an RRP of £59.95.
Composed from a selection of Highland and Speyside whiskies – the aromas and flavours of Apogee have been enhanced further through maturation in casks from London’s award-winning Bimber Distillery.
