Wine and spirits merchant and independent bottler Berry Bros & Rudd has announced its 2024 spring release. The selection of whisky and rum released traverses the world, with a lengthy stop in Speyside.

 

Top billed in the selection of Speyside single malts is a 1979 Benrinnes from the Berry Bros & Rudd Exceptional Cask Collection. Joining Benrinnes in the collection are releases from Speyside’s Knockdhu, Craigellechie, and Glenlossie. Alongside them is a Madeira cask finish from Highlander Ardmore.

 

Straying from Scotland, Swedish distillery High Coast also features in the spring release. The High Coast Peated 2012 brings “unmistakable Nordic character,” says the bottler. The collection also includes a Guyanese rum distilled in 2013.

 

Felix Dear, spirits curator for Berry Bros & Rudd, commented: “Building on the success of previous releases within our seasonal portfolio, we continue to pour our expertise and passion for spirit into selecting each bottle and curating these collections, with a goal of showcasing a diversity of flavour and makers. The 2024 spring release is no exception.

 

“It is always a pleasure to shine a light on distilleries from the iconic Speyside and Highland regions, many a stone’s throw from where I have hosted whisky tastings in the past, as well as delving into the rich and exotic flavours of South American rum and representing the burgeoning Swedish distilling scene.”

 

Dear joined Berry Bros & Rudd earlier this year, taking over from Kythe Distillery founder Jonny McMillan. He shared his vision for the future of Berry Bros & Rudd with whiskymag.com earlier this month.
