The Company has been doing it for years, we mean distilling much loved single malts like Glenfiddich as well as other spirits such as Hendrick’s Gin. According to recent IWSR (International Wine & Spirit Research) results, William Grant and Sons is now the world’s number three in retail value. This time around, Grant’s has launched the new Balvenie Triple Cask range, pictured left, at the Delhi Duty Free.
Developed for the globetrotter who knows how to appreciate good Scotch, the range consists of 12-year-old, 16-year-old and 25-year-old variants. Matured in traditional casks (first-fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry), the Triple Cask range has something unique for those who have a taste for the finer things in life.
While the Triple Cask 12-year-old tastes of dried fruits, vanilla and cinnamon, the Triple Cask 16-year-old is infused with rich vanilla, and hints of toffee and gentle oak. The Triple Cask 25-year-old boasts silky oak and spice with a lingering, warm finish.
William Grant & Sons’ Head of Sales, India subcontinent, Neeraj Sharma believes, “After the great success of The Balvenie range in both global travel retail and domestic business we have decided to provide international travellers an opportunity to discover more from a differentiated range of handcrafted Single Malt whiskies.”
Balvenie Triple Cask is exclusive to the Delhi Duty Free and not available in the domestic market. “This gives added gift and collecting appeal to the range,” noted Sharma.
William Grant & Sons is an independent family-owned distiller founded by William Grant in 1886 and is today still controlled by the fifth generation of his family. The Company distils some of the world’s leading brands of Scotch whisky and the world’s oldest family blend, Grant’s.
