Beam Suntory and Heinemann have partnered to release a pair of exclusive single cask Bowmore whiskies: Bowmore 1997 & Bowmore 1995

Beam Suntory and Heinemann have partnered to release a pair of exclusive single cask Bowmore whiskies: Bowmore 1997 & Bowmore 1995.

These exquisite whiskies have been aged for 22 and 24 years respectively, in Bowmore’s well known No.1 Vaults, the oldest Scotch maturation warehouse in the world. The two showcase the distinctive character that has made the Islay distillery iconic for more than 200 years.

Both expressions have been full matured in first-fill bourbon hogshead casks, with their respective cask number printed on the bottle label.

Matured and nurtured for 22 years, Bowmore 1997 showcases deep layers of vanilla, peat smoke and praline, while Bowmore 1995, which has spent 24 years in cask, offers aromas of rich honey, citrus fruits and cocoa.

These new two single malts are set to appeal to both collectors and global travelers seeking something different and exclusive.

Only 236 bottles of Bowmore 1997 will be available at Heinemann’s Frankfurt Airport store from November 21 at the RRSP of €399.90.

Only 234 bottles of Bowmore 1995 will be available exclusively at Heinemann’s outlet in Istanbul Airport from November 28 at the RRSP of €499.00.

Representing the main landmarks of Frankfurt and Istanbul and enhancing these limited-edition casks, each bottles his housed in a bespoke presentation box with an embossing of the skylines of each city.

“Bowmore is one of the most collectable and iconic whisky brands in the world and both of these exceptional single malts display the signature rich fruit and balanced smoke that makes Bowmore famous. As with any single cask, we’ll never be able to re-create the exact profile again so these prized bottles offer a unique glimpse into the world of Bowmore that only a select handful of world travelers will get to experience.

We’re very excited to be working with Heinemann to offer these brilliant single cask expressions exclusively to their customers," says Ed Stening, Global Marketing Director at Beam Suntory International Global Travel Retail.
