Distell to launch six limited releases at The Malt Gallery event!

Bunnahabhain Mòine Bordeaux

Distell will hold its first annual showcase event this September, The Malt Gallery. This inaugural event will be held in London and Distell will launch no less than six limited releases to showcase its single malt portfolio.

We are probably most thrilled about the Bunnahabhain Palo Cartado. You can read more about it here…

Commenting on the new expressions, Derek Scott, Brand Director for Malt Whisky at Distell, said: This has been a revolutionary year for our malt portfolio. We’re lucky to have three very different distilleries and this showcase will allow us to share the stories of each and highlight how these are reflected in the bold new releases.

Kirstie, our lead blender, has been working with each distillery to create these unique whiskies. Using the flavour profile each brand is known for as the guide to select the finishing casks, we’ve been able to create six limited release whiskies that are not just of interest for their points of difference but are also fantastic drams that remain true to the whisky’s style.

“A truly unique event within the industry and a fantastic exhibition of our brand stories, whiskies and the characters behind the making of them, we are confident this will become a much loved event in the whisky calendar.”
