High Commissioner adds limited edition variant

16 November, 2017

Blended Scotch whisky brand High Commissioner has unveiled a new limited edition bottle design, as a celebration of the brand’s heritage.

The High Commissioner Heritage Edition highlights the whisky’s history, which dates back more than 160 years, and features a limited edition label design.

The new label introduces a burgundy colour palette to achieve greater shelf stand out. The description on the label showcases the year and location in which High Commissioner was founded and provides an historical insight to communicate the rich history of the brand.

Scott Dickson, marketing manager at Loch Lomond Group, said: “High Commissioner has been the original blend since 1856 and the Heritage Edition is a celebration of over 160 years of dedication and craftsmanship. To this day, the premium blended Scotch whisky is crafted to perfection from an original Bulloch family recipe.”

The whisky is said to deliver “an exceptional smooth taste” and it offers flavours of soft fruits, peach, pear and chewy caramel, according to the producer. It is sweet and fruity with notes of malted barley, overlaid with a touch of peat.

The newcomer is priced at £13.99. There will be 100,000 bottles released, which will be available to buy in the UK at selected Best One, Premier, KeyStore, Nisa, Costcutter, Iceland and Day-Today stores.
