Three age-statement single malts released by Bacardi's Royal Brackla distillery

Published:  26 August, 2015

Bacardi-owned John Dewar has unveiled a new range of whiskies from its Royal Brackla distillery.

The line-up comprises 12 Year Old, 16 Year Old and 21 Year Old and will be available in 10 markets including the UK from September.

The distillery claims to be the first to have received "royal" status when the word was bestowed on it by William IV in 1835.

Stephen Marshall, Bacardi's global marketing manager, said: "This is the one that was described as 'the drink divine' by the royal household in the 1830s.

"That's no small claim, so we had to take our time and the entire team have done an amazing job that really does justice to Royal Brackla's incredible heritage."

The whiskies are bottled at 40% abv and - in addition to the UK - will be on sale in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Taiwan, the US and global travel retail.
