The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage has been crafted by The GlenDronach Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie, in collaboration with the KINGSMAN film franchise producer, writer and director Matthew Vaughn, to mark the global release of “The King’s Man” in 2020.
Matured in Oloroso sherry casks with a final maturation in Pedro Ximénez casks from Spain, this twenty nine year old vintage is richly sherried, characterful and complex, with an enduring finish. Just six of the finest casks from 1989, one of our most exclusive vintages, have been meticulously selected and married for exceptional character. Each bottle of this vintage release is carefully hand numbered to reflect its rarity.
This exceptional vintage is the same age as the whisky held in the oldest bottle of The GlenDronach housed at the distillery a twenty nine year old whisky, bottled in 1913, just before the outbreak of the First World War. That rare bottle, now over a century old, was gifted to the distillery, and remains unopened as a mark of respect to fallen friends.
Only 3,052 bottles available worldwide from 1st September 2020.
Each luxurious box is adorned with the iconic bespoke Kingsman insignia and bears the signatures of both Dr. Rachel Barrie and Matthew Vaughn.
The expression is bottled at 50.1% ABV. Non chill-filtered and natural cask imparted colour.
