Single malt goes into vintage range

09 March, 2007

Inver House Distillers is relaunching its Balblair single malt as a vintage range.

The distiller has moved away from traditional age descriptions usually used in the category in favour ofhand-picked years that represent the best the whisky has to offer. Three vintages have been chosen - 1979 (rrp 84.99), 1989 (rrp 39.95) and 1997 (27.99).

The range has been repackaged in a pe bble-shaped bottle .

Each vintage is presented in a display box featuring images of the distillery's surrounding countryside.

These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
