Three Whisky Show bottlings celebrate the Future of Whisky
Three limited-edition bottlings of whisky will be revealed at The Whisky Show 2018, which is now in its tenth year.
The bottlings of Ben Nevis, Ledaig and Invergordon all use lenticular labels to “bring the bottles to life” and to support the show’s theme, which is the Future of Whisky.
The whiskies are presented as ‘Past Future’ (what we thought the future would be in the past), ‘Present Future’ (what we presently think the future will be), and ‘The Future’ (what we think the future might be in the future).
The whiskies will be available to taste at the Show Bottlings stand (no.68) and also available to buy at the shop exclusively via The Whisky Exchange shop.
The Whisky Show takes place at Old Billingsgate in London on September 29 and 30. Trade visitors are also welcomed on October 1.
Public day tickets cost £110, which includes a two-course lunch, one Dream Dram token, and more than 600 whiskies to try. Weekend tickets are £195. Tickets can be sourced online at whiskyshow.com
The three limited edition whiskies include Past Future, which is a Ben Nevis 21 Year Old Single Malt (rsp: £130), described as having flavours of “candy to start, and then creamy notes alongside marmalade, apple puree and tropical fruit chews.
Present Future is a Ledaig 12 Year OId Single Malt (rsp: £74.95), which is said to have flavours of: “Ash, tar and rich chocolaty sweetness. Zingy menthol tingles on the tongue, along with a touch of icing sugar.”
And The Future, which is Invergordon 44 Year-Old (rsp: £250) is described as being soft, rounded and rich. It has flavours of toffee and caramel “joined by vanilla sauce and brulee topping”.
