Independent bottler and distiller Ian Macleod, is to launch a range of new releases from their exclusive Chieftainâ€™s limited edition collection.
The rare casks include new bottlings from some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, and showcases a complete redesign of the bottle and packaging of the Chieftain’s range. The new releases include a Glenrothes 14 Years Old, an Aultmore 12 Years Old, three Caol Ila’s aged 9, 11 and 13 Years Old, an Ardbeg 11 Years Old, a Benriach 12 Years Old, a Bladnoch 16 Years Old and a Tomatin 16 Years Old.
Designed by Ron Burnett Design the new packaging emphasises its limited edition status with more details appealing to the connoisseur, collector and enthusiast. The new two-part labels, personally signed by Antony McCallum-Caron, Chieftain’s Rare Malt Manager, include individual cask numbers and the number of bottles produced, as well as distillation, bottling date and wood type. The new labels also have a refined ‘Chieftain’ illustration and elegant calligraphic script brand namestyle, tapered to reflect the new elegant antique bottle shape.
Since 1936, Ian Macleod Distillers, through its dedication to tradition and quality, has amassed an unrivalled cask stock from Scotland’s many distilleries. The enviable collection includes extremely rare malts, some from closed or mothballed distilleries. The Chieftain’s collection’s hallmark is that each bottling must be fit for a King, a Leader or in the Celtic world, a Chieftain.
Further rare cask releases from the Chieftain’s range are planned for later in the year.
