Inbox / The Week's Whisky News (April 22, 2022)

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 round-up of the news from this last week. 


Douglas Laing
The independent bottler and blender of Douglas Laing & Co. have revealed a new limited edition of The Gauldrons, their Campbeltown blended malt brand. The Gauldrons Sherry Cask Finish features only single malts from Campbeltown and has seen the blended malt created, before a final finishing period in ex-sherry casks from Spain. The Gauldrons was an area of small coves and inlets on Campbeltown's western shoreline. There are just 2,125 bottles. The whisky is released at 46.2% ABV and is both non chill-filtered and of natural colour. It will be available from selected specialist whisky retailers in the UK from late-April. A bottle will cost £60.

Loch Lomond

The independent and award-winning Lowland distillery of Loch Lomond has unveiled a new look for its branding and packaging. The redesign features a new bottle shape and labels with deeper, richer colouration and bolder lettering. It will feature across the entire Loch Lomond range and includes the Inchmoan and Inchmurrin bottlings, plus the limited editions released as part of the brand's sponsorship of The Open golf tournament. The transition to the new packaging will begin from late-April and will incorporate both domestic and global travel retail markets.

The Speyside distillery of Tamnavulin has announced a new expression to its core range - the Tamnavulin White Wine Cask Edition. It follows a series of successful ex-red wine cask expressions that have been launched over the last two years. The new whisky was initially matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred for a finishing period in ex-Sauvignon Blanc wine casks. The Tamnavulin White Wine Cask Edition is bottled at 40% ABV and is available now in the UK and USA, and will be shortly available in selected European markets. A bottle will cost £32/ $42 US/ €38.
