Diageo Introduces the Four Corners of Scotland Collection

Following yesterday’s news of Glenkinchie’s new distillery and garden visitor attraction, Diageo is pleased to introduce the Four Corners of Scotland Collection’s first release, Glenkinchie 16 Year Old.

This limited-edition series of Single Malts commemorates the transformation of the brand homes of Glenkinchie, Cardhu, Caol Ila, and Clynelish. The four distilleries represent the ‘four corners of Scotland’ and the regional variations of Lowland (Glenkinchie), Speyside (Cardhu), Islay (Caol Ila) and Highland (Clynelish) crucial to the art of whisky blending at the heart of Johnnie Walker.

The Four Corners Glenkinchie 16 Year Old is a fragrant, fresh and elegant example of Glenkinchie with fruity notes of baked apple combined with subtle creamy traces of mossy aromas. The texture is luscious and smooth, opening with sweet flavours, swiftly followed by slightly drying and spicy tones which are perfectly balanced by appetising juicy acidity. The finish is elegantly dry and crisp, carrying an attractive aftertaste of white pepper. Reminiscent of the distillery’s rural setting, this excellent aperitif malt brings up a touch of vanilla ice cream, countered by a sharper freshness when added a splash of water.

The Glenkinchie 16 Year Old is exclusively available to purchase at the Lowland distillery. This unique bottling will retail at RRSP £150 per 70cl, is bottled at 50.6% ABV with just 2,502 bottles available.
