Rémy Cointreau unveils new GTR-exclusive Port Charlotte range

By Wendy Morley

This heavily peated single malt is a vintage, and therefore available in limited quantities

Rémy Cointreau is launching a new single malt from the house of Bruichladdich, PORT CHARLOTTE 2007 CC:01 – a tribute to the exceptional, heavily peated spirit created at Loch Indaal distillery until its closure in 1929 and reopened 15 years ago.

This new malt has been created by exploration by the distillery’s dedicated how peat combines with elegant floral top notes achieved by trickle distillation in their tall, narrow-necked copper stills, and then how this sophisticated smoke-rich spirit is influenced by the cask in which it is matured. None of the distillery’s single malts contain color, and none has been chill-filtered.

Breaking with tradition, PORT CHARLOTTE 2007 CC:01 has been kept for eight years in French oak, slumbering on Islay in casks that previously held one of the great eaux de vie from the western Cognac region. The peat smoke combined with salt spray from the shores of Loch Indaal vie with the toasted oak and lemon barley sugar flavours of the wood, ultimately releasing multi-layered and warming aromas of poached pears, cinnamon, ginger and yet more rich vanilla.

This latest release is a single vintage, and so is limited.

PORT CHARLOTTE 2007 CC:01 will be available from April 2016 exclusively through selected travel retail stores at a recommended price of €90/US$103.50. It will be exhibited at IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas on booth 113.
