Chivas Brothers Extends Cask Strength Limited Edition Range with Extinct Malts

Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky and premium gin business of Pernod Ricard, is to extend its Cask Strength Edition range with the release of two exceptionally rare malt whiskies, available from distillery visitor centre shops.

Following the discovery of rare reserves from two distilleries no longer in existence, Highland malt Glenugie 32 Year Old and Lowland malt Inverleven 36 Year Old will complement the company’s six-strong range of Cask Strength Edition whiskies, all of which are non-chill-filtered.

The two malts from extinct distilleries fittingly come with the additional title “Deoch an Doras”, a traditional Gaelic expression for a farewell drink**. Just 500 bottles of each new expression will be released.

Douglas Callander, Heritage Director for Chivas Brothers says: “With both distilleries no longer in existence, these exceptionally rare malts are expected to attract attention from collectors and connoisseurs globally.

Given Chivas Brothers’ long tradition and expertise in laying down significant quantities of Scotch whisky, specifically for extended, long-term maturation, we are confident that these two gems will be very well received.”
