The Spirit of Unity supports Japan
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News
Seven Scotch whisky distilleries are donating a cask of its single malt that will be expertly blended to create a limited edition whisky, appropriately called The Spirit of Unity.
The idea came from Euan Mitchell, managing director of Arran, and the seven casks will be blended by BenRiach’s Master Distiller Billy Walker.
The combined contribution will produce approximately 2000 bottles with 1200 available in the UK. The remainder will be shipped to Japan with some being donated for sale in New Zealand to assist with relief in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake.
With the support of suppliers and partners, including retailers, a conservative estimate is that at least £50,000 will be donated to the relief effort.
