Pernod Ricard unveils first new expression for Longmorn Speyside single malt

28 January, 2016

Pernod Ricard UK has unveiled the first in a series of new expressions for its Speyside Longmorn whisky.

The Distillerís Choice is a smooth, single malt whisky which has been matured in American oak, Oloroso sherry and traditional oak casks. It has been bottled with an abv of 40%.

The Longmorn Distillery was founded by John Duff in 1894, who went to the extent of building a railway station for the distillery to ensure both reliable delivery of ingredients and a fast turnaround on despatch.

The brandís history is echoed in the packaging of The Distillerís Choice, which features a label that echoes the design of a train ticket.

The Longmorn logo has also been updated to include a steam train.

Vicky Hoey, head of dark spirits at Pernod Ricard, said: ďFor more than a century, Longmorn single malt has been one of the best-kept secrets in Scotland, so we are very excited to be releasing The Distillerís Choice.

ďWhat better single malt than Longmorn, created in the Golden Era of Luxury, to delight discerning drinkers looking for quality, heritage and pedigree.

ďLongmorn The Distillerís Choice, with its soft, creamy and rich flavour profile, will be the perfect addition to the repertoire of knowledgeable Scotch whisky drinkers.Ē

Longmorn The Distillerís Choice will retail at £50.69 per 70cl bottle.

Further expressions for Longmorn will be revealed later in 2016.

All across England and Wales, vineyards are being harvested. Down winding country lanes come armies of welly-wearing conscripts wielding secateurs and buckets, ready to reap the rewards of our vines. Happily they come, their cheeks ruddy with pride. Half an hour later theyíre crawling over muddy clods with lacerated hands, drenched in claggy juice and cold sweat, as if ploughing through an endurance race.
