Bowmore Islay Single Malt Whisky, one of the world’s most prized and beloved whiskies, is launching a new range of luxurious single malts, exclusively available in Travel Retail & Duty Free
shops worldwide. Reserved solely for the discerning traveller, this selection of premium single malts has been inspired by Bowmore’s extraordinary home, the island of Islay.
Beautifully packaged, the new range takes inspiration from the magical and remote island of Islay, widely regarded as Scotland’s whisky island. The trio of whiskies, including Black Rock, Gold Reef and White Sands 17 Year Old, celebrate the rich diversity of this unique and enchanting environment, whilst communicating the provenance, tradition and craftsmanship of Bowmore, #pieceofislay.
Upholding its commitment towards whisky connoisseurs and collectors, Bowmore has created a premium and highly giftable range that pays tribute to its previous collection – Bowmore Black, Bowmore Gold and Bowmore White, which is one of the world’s most collectable single malt ranges.
BOWMORE BLACK ROCK
At the heart of the range is Black Rock, an incredibly rich single malt named after the jaggy outcrop that’s clearly visible in the bay across from the distillery, which has stood on the shores of Loch
Indaal since 1779. Matured predominately in first-fill ex-Spanish sherry casks, the result is a delicious balance of peat smoke, treacle toffee and orange.
BOWMORE GOLD REEF
Venture further out to sea, deep beneath the waves, and you’ll be greeted by the island’s reefs. The warm glow of the sun’s rays reflecting off the coral seabed can be seen in the deep golden hues that catch your eye inside every bottle of Gold Reef. A satisfyingly smooth malt, it’s matured mostly in first-fill ex-bourbon casks with notes of vanilla, citrus fruits and coconut milk.
BOWMORE WHITE SANDS 17 YEAR OLD
Bowmore White Sands 17 Year Old is the pièce de résistance in the range. Not only is it Bowmore’s Master Distiller Eddie MacAffer’s personal favourite, it has also been inspired by the stunning beaches of The Big Strand and Laggan Bay, a stretch of coast just south of the Bowmore distillery.
The whisky has been matured for 17 years in Bowmore’s legendary No.1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in Scotland. Savour notes of rich treacle toffee and ripe exotic fruits bound together by warm peat smoke.
TASTE OF ISLAY
Founded in 1779, Bowmore is the oldest distillery on Islay; an archaeological treasure trove and a haven for whisky aficionados around the world. Standing proud on the shores of Loch Indaal, the
distillery’s proximity to the sea, along with the combination of peat, barley, sea breeze, water, wood, people and tradition together create the perfectly balanced warm and smoky character of Bowmore Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.
