Speyburn Launches New Limited Release Whisky

imageNEW YORK, NY- September 29, 2015 - Speyburn, the emblematic Scotch whisky from Speyside, is announcing the launch of the newest addition to its range, Arranta Casks. The U.S. only limited release is unique for its exclusive use of first fill American Oak ex-bourbon casks and draws its rich color and full-bodied flavor from the quality and character of the wood.

This latest release shows off a bolder take on the classic Speyburn flavor profile of citrus, vanilla and honey with the added notes of toffee, coconut and spice imparted by the use of the first fill American Oak ex-bourbon casks, which were hand-selected by Speyburn's Distillery Manager Robert Anderson.

"As well as using first fill barrels only, all the wood used to make these barrels is air-dried. Air-dried barrels -- as opposed to bourbon barrels that are kiln-dried -- maintain more moisture and flavor throughout the process," says Anderson. "We are excited to offer a new take on the Speyburn taste that you know and love and elevate it for an even bolder flavor that truly over delivers."

"Arranta" meaning 'bold', 'daring' and 'intrepid' in Scottish Gaelic, Arranta Casks embodies the spirit of the Speyburn distillery.

Speyburn Arranta Casks is bottled at 46% abv (92 proof) and will be available on August 15 as a limited release, exclusively in the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $40. For more information, contact 375 Park Avenue Spirits or visit www.speyburn.com.
