Over the summer Lady of the Glen will be releasing a plethora of wonderful varied Whisky.
The new releases will be uniquely etched with numbers in relation to the total cask yield. This should add to the uniqueness of each bottle and bring us back to the old style paper labels although still retaining our contemporary etched bottle design.

All the casks are bourbon and the prices have not been set. It will make for a very interesting few months as ¾ quarters of each cask has already been sold for further distribution. The website will host the sale of only 20 bottles of each cask.
So, the additions will more than double the range that is currently on offer!
