Douglas Laing announced the first two new releases for its blended malt range from Island distilleries, which recently has been rebranded from Rock Oyster to Rock Island.
A Limited Edition Rock Island release is available via specialist spirits retailers at an expected retail price of £89. This 21 year old blended malt is bottled at 46.8% abv and just 4,200 bottles have been produced.
Rock Island 10 Years Old, expected to retail at £45 and bottled at 46% abv, will join the range as a continually available offering, joining fellow Remarkable Regional Malts age statement offerings launched earlier this year; Timorous Beastie 10 Years Old and Scallywag 10 Years Old.
Cara Laing, third generation and Director of Whisky, comments: “We’re thrilled to celebrate sea-faring Scotch Whisky this summer with our new global brand campaign and two new releases in our Rock Island range – Rock Island 10 Years Old and Limited Edition 21 Years Old. Created by marrying together Single Malts distilled on the Whisky Islands of Islay, Arran, Jura and Orkney, Rock Island and its special edition counterparts genuinely encapsulate the archetypal salty, smoky, peppery warmth that
Island Whiskies are famed for, and our new master visual, print and digital advertising alongside events across key markets globally are designed to bring those mouth-watering qualities to life”.
