Top new products from November

29th November, 2012 by db_staff

Fancy some early Christmas shopping? We list what’s been released this month.

From a new 30-year-old single malt whisky from the Isle of Jura distillery to a Cognac Frapin from the McKinley Vintners, get some seasonal inspiration from our list of new products.

Jura 30 year old Standing Stone

CONTACT Whyte & Mackay, +44 (0)1283 217703

Jura Distillery has added a 30-year-old expression to its range called “Standing Stone” or “Camas an Staca” in Gaelic. The new whisky takes its name from one of the largest of Jura’s eight standing stones – a 12-foot obelisk that is part of a stone circle laid some 3,000 years ago to appease the spirits.

Distillery manager, Willie Cochrane, says: “The standing stones have mysteriously stood the test of time on the island, so it’s only fitting that we create an aged whisky in their honour. The whisky’s long maturation in American white oak gives the spirit a quiet serenity, whilst its three years spent finessing in the finest oloroso Sherry butts from González Byass gives this spirit a commanding finish.”

The whisky will go on sale at selected shops this December, RRP £350.
