The new Exceptional Cask Series releases from Berry Bros. & Rudd
Berry Bros. & Rudd has unveiled the latest whiskies in its Exceptional Cask Series – alongside more environmentally friendly packaging for the range.
The latest Exceptional Cask releases span the breadth of Scotland's whisky-making regions, with Campbeltown, the Lowlands, Islay and Speyside represented. The batch comprises a 1968 Secret Speyside and a 1998 Bowmore as part of the winter release, followed by an independent bottling of 1995 Springbank as part of the spring release and a 1964 Girvan in summer.
For these new releases, Berry Bros. & Rudd has used new more environmentally friendly packaging: the bottles (made by Glencairn) contain 35 per cent recycled glass, and the secondary packaging is made from Valchromat, a plastic-free material made from recycled pine wood and mill waste and using organic, non-toxic dyes.

"Our latest Exceptional Cask releases will sit comfortably alongside the rest of the range, being sustainable without sacrificing our prestige style and quality which our consumers have come to appreciate and expect from Berry Bros. & Rudd.”
