Campbeltown distillery Glen Scotia, owned by Loch Lomond Group, is partnering with World Duty Free to launch two travel shopping-exclusive whiskies in UK airports.
Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown and Glen Scotia 16yo will be available in the travel retailer’s World of Whiskies stores from this month.
Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown is priced at £52 (€59.50) for 1 litre and Glen Scotia 16yo is priced at £75 (€85.80) for 1 litre.
Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown is a single malt whisky with a balanced peated character, while Glen Scotia 16yo is a single malt whisky with hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.
The partnership with World Duty Free follows the release of a limited-edition 26yo Glen Scotia Single Cask exclusively at Edinburgh Airport last year.
Loch Lomond Group Global Travel Retail Managing Director André de Almeida said: “We’re very excited to be introducing Glen Scotia in partnership with World Duty Free. The Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown whisky alongside the classic Glen Scotia 16yo single malt will provide a true taste of the distillery’s distinctive and authentic character.
“The launch forms part of our ambitious worldwide roll-out of our global travel retail range and marks a significant milestone for Glen Scotia, as it’s the first time the brand will be available in airports right across the UK.”
World Duty Free Commercial Category Manager Kathryn Kindness said: “The launch of Glen Scotia is very exciting for us as it now ensures a Campbeltown single malt offering in each of our UK World of Whiskies stores so all of our consumers will have the opportunity to discover a region not previously represented.”
