Whisky honours Jackson's memory

19 March, 2009

The memory of beer and whisky writer Michael Jackson is being honoured by Berry Bros & Rudd with a limited edition blended whisky.

The Michael Jackson Blend will raise money for the Parkinsonís Society. Jackson had suffered from the illness for 10 years until his death in August 2007, aged 65.

The blend has been made using opened bottles from Jacksonís extensive collection of tasting samples. It is described as having aromas of apple, custard cream and orange peel, with a palate of toffee, sherry and a kick of spice.

Jacksonís brother-in-law has designed the label for the whisky, which will be available from Berry Bros & Rudd priced £69.95.
