Inbox - The Week's Whisky News (January 31, 2020)

Welcome to Inbox, our weekly round up of whisky news and PR material that has found its way in to our WFE email. It was created as we cannot write full articles or do justice to every piece received. It features items from around the world of whisky and is published by us each Friday.

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 the news that has grabbed our attention this week.


Douglas Laing
The family owned independent bottler of Douglas Laing has announced the fourth and final part of their single cask Old Particular 'Elements' series with the Jura 12 years old 'Water Edition'. This follows the three previous releases -the Cameronbridge 27 years old 'Air Edition', Caol Ila 8 years old 'Earth Edition' and Craigellachie 12 years old 'Fire Edition' - and is designed to show the natural elements that aid whisky making and maturation.

The new Jura 'Water Edition' has been matured in a single ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry cask and this has been bottled at the natural strength of 54.3% ABV. No indication of price or the amount of bottles available were given in the press release. For further information - please visit
