The Glen Grant Lunar New Year limited-edition bottles
Glen Grant is launching a range of decorative limited-edition gift sets across its core range to welcome in the Lunar New Year.
To mark the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit, an animal which symbolises longevity and elegance in Chinese culture, Glen Grant has released special editions of its 12, 15 and 18 Years Old single malt Scotch whiskies, alongside a limited-release 21 Years Old single malt.
Available in key markets across Asia , including China, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam, the core-range gift sets are inspired by the renewal and revival of the new year and feature illustrations of sprouting seedlings, blooming flowers, and animals waking from hibernation.
QR codes on each gift pack for the 12, 15 and 18 Years Old will reveal details about the Glen Grant distillery and tasting notes for each expression. Each bottle will also come with a rabbit stopper as part of the collectible Zodiac Series.
In conjunction with the Lunar New Year editions, Glen Grant has also announced its 2023 release of 21-year-old single malt whisky. Matured in ex-oloroso sherry casks and ex-bourbon barrels, the 21 Years Old is blended in small batches and is bottled at 46% ABV with natural colour and without chill filtration.
A limited Lunar New Year release of the 21 Years Old single malt (RRP S$488), presented in a gift pack adorned with illustrations of Chinese New Year decorations, will be made available in advance of the whisky going on general sale in March 2023.
Dennis Malcolm, Glen Grant master distiller, said: "This 21 Years Old whisky marks a highly significant moment in time for The Glen Grant and one which will pave the way for a new era. This is an exciting development and one which I know will take us forward into the future with pride and passion.
"Each one of our whiskies tells its own story and reveals its very own flavour journey defined by a captivating character, with unfolding layers and surprising complexity. I’m proud and thrilled to be able to share this wonderful whisky with the world and bring to life the richly inspiring tropical style which continues our commitment to consistent quality which I believe truly sets us apart."
The Glen Grant 12 Years Old (S$95), 15 Years Old (S$128) and 18 Years Old (S$249) Lunar New Year limited editions are available from major online retailers including Shopee, Lazada and Cellarbration until the end of February 2023.
