Jackson honoured with whisky blend

27 March, 2009

The memory of beer and whisky writer Michael Jackson is being honoured by Berry Bros & Rudd with a limited edition blended whisky.

The Michael Jackson Blend will raise money for the Parkinson's Society. Jackson

suffered from the illness for 10 years until his death in August 2007, aged 65.

The blend has been made using opened bottles from Jackson's extensive collection of tasting samples.

It is described as having aromas of apple, custard cream and orange peel, with a palate of toffee, sherry and a kick of spice.

Jackson's brother-in-law has designed the label for the whisky, which will be available from Berry Bros & Rudd priced ú69.95.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
