Whisky range top choice of workers

16 November, 2007

Ian Macleod Distillers has launched a limited-edition collection of single cask malt whiskies, selected by workers at its distillery.

Choice Malts have been selected by Glengoyne's distillery manager Robert Hughes and warehousemen William Edmiston and Derrick Morrison.

Hughes has selected an 18 Year Old ruby port oak cask, which he describes as "a topaz-coloured whisky that tastes of chocolate cherries with rich oak and peppery dried fruits." Edmiston's whisky has also been aged for 18 years in an Amontillado cask, while Morrison has opted for a rarely released refill cask.

Stuart Hendry, brand heritage and commercial manager, said "these latest malts look set to challenge our previous Mashmen and Stillmen ranges".

The malts will retail at £240 for Robbie's Choice, £130 for Billy's Choice and £67 for Derrick's Choice.
