Within Inbox we aim to write a few lines detailing each press release/piece of news/PR event that we have received and provide links, where possible, for you to find out further information. Here is this week's news that caught our eyes ...
The multi-national drinks company of Diageo has announced a third expression in its craft small-batch Whiskey Union range - the Huxley Rare Genus Whiskey. It joins the Boxing Hares and Smoky Goat expressions, which were launched last November, and is designed to "take whiskey drinkers into uncharted territory".
The new blend combines American, Canadian and Scotch whiskies together and is named after T. H. Huxley, the celebrated 19th century anatomist. The label features the Mobsprey - a mythical hybrid creature that combines American, Canadian and Scottish animals. The Huxley will initially be available in Austria and Germany.
The Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull has continued its recent busy release programme with the announcement of a new limited edition series of single malts and the first two expressions in that series. Both are released as small batches with one at 18 years old, which has been matured in ex-bourbon casks, and the other at 20 years old (pictured, left), matured in ex-sherry casks. Both are bottled at 46.3% ABV with the recommended retail prices for each at £100 for the 18 years old and £120 for the 20 years old.
Each bottle includes a booklet with the packaging that features specially commissioned artwork by renowned local artist Angus Stewart and a tear-off tag. This tag, along with one from each of the other five releases in the new series, will allow purchasers to be entered into a prize draw to win a bottle of the newly release Tobermory 42 years old. This is priced at £2,500 a bottle.
