The Glasgow-based Scotch whisky bottler and distiller Hunter Laing & Co has today launched a new range of single cask bottlings: The Hunter Laing Old & Rare Heritage series. The family-owned company has announced more than 20 different single cask whiskies as part of this new series, all of which have been matured for more than 30 years.

Cataloguing a wide swathe of Scotch whisky styles, many of which have changed significantly or disappeared entirely over the last three decades, the release includes rarely seen examples such as Tamdhu 30 Years Old, Ardmore 31 Years Old, Dailuaine 46 Years Old and Benrinnes 40 Years Old. Taking the lead from Hunter Laing’s existing Old & Rare collection, all of the whiskies have been bottled at natural cask strength, free from artificial colouring and without use of chill filtration.

The Old & Rare Heritage series will be presented in a dark green bottle and a wooden clasp presentation box. According to Hunter Laing & Co, “This look harks back to the original appearance of the Old and Rare ‘Platinum’ range when it was first released at the turn of the millennium and will be familiar to those who have enjoyed the most sought-after malt whiskies since those days.”

Of this new series, Stewart Laing, managing director of Hunter Laing, said, “There are some whiskies which are so remarkable that they deserve a little extra recognition, and our heritage series was created to celebrate these incredible malts.”

He continued, “My two sons and I have personally selected each of these whiskies from our finest and most prized stocks.”

Andrew Laing, company export director, commented, “We are very excited to launch our Old & Rare Heritage series. 2019 continues to be both a busy and exciting year for us at Hunter Laing & Co with the opening of our first distillery Ardnahoe, the launch of the Scarabus Islay single malt and entering the travel retail market with Scarabus and our Journey Series of blended malts.”
