Von der Highland-Brennerei Tomatin sind wir darüber informiert worden, dass man mit heutigem Datum die bislang älteste Abfüllung aus der Destillerie am Flughafen in Amsterdam finden kann. Der Tomatin 50yo ist im Dezember des Vorjahres veröffentlicht worden (wir berichteten hier) und ist jetzt auch am Schipol Airport zu sehen.

Der Whisky mit 45.3% Alkoholstärke und mit einem Verkaufspreis von £10,000 wurde nur 70x abgefüllt – nach einer Nachreifung in einem Oloroso-Sherryfass.

In Schipol ist der Whisky nun exklusiv im “Exquisite Shop” zu finden. Dazu gibt es auch eine Presseaussendung, die wir gerne für Sie bringen, gemeinsam mit einem Video, das bereits zur Veröffentlichung des Tomatin 50yo gedreht wurde:


TOMATIN DISTILLERY’S OLDEST RELEASE TOUCHES DOWN IN AMSTERDAM

Tomatin, the award-winning Highland whisky distillery has announced its oldest expression will be on display in Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, with Schiphol Airport Retail, a joint venture between the travel retailer Gebr. Heinemann and the Royal Schiphol Group. The whisky will be available exclusively at the airport’s “Exquisite Shop”, a unique destination for the finest wine, spirits and cigars.

Following 50 years of maturation at the distillery, the deep-honey coloured expression has been bottled in its most natural form, yielding just 70 special bottles at 45.3% abv, and was released in December 2018 retailing at several thousand pounds.

The whisky, finished in a first fill Oloroso Sherry Butt, cask number 35817, is encased within an individually numbered, handblown Glencairn crystal decanter. The decanter is luxuriously presented within a striking Italian crafted wooden box, furnished with soft, premium Italian leather. Sealed with a wooden transit cork, an engraved, solid brass gold-plated and glass stopper is also provided. Each box comes with an individuallynumbered book, hand-signed by Distillery Manager, Graham Eunson. Finally, a premium leather carry bag completes the presentation.

Tomatin have spent the last few years voyaging into the world of duty free, having launched a series of new and exclusive whiskies, available now in airports across Europe. The age statement collection comprises the distillery’s flagship 12 year old and three travel retail exclusive editions: an 8 year old, a 15 year old and a rare 40 year old vintage. The Travel Retail range recently swept the board at the San Francisco World Spirit competition, taking home three double golds and one gold award.

Graham Nicolson, Sales Director of Tomatin Distillery has said:

“It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of our oldest expression – the Tomatin 50 Year Old – to Schiphol Airport. This special expression has been quietly resting for half a century and it will be wonderful to see it presented in all its glory within Schiphol Airport Retail’s travel retail space.”
