Tomatin Distillery Launches New Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Tomatin, the award-winning Highland distillery, has announced the release of a new limited-edition single malt Scotch whisky that showcases the brand’s expertise in cask maturations.

The whisky is set to be available in 70cl bottles, with a 57.4% ABV and priced at £395, exclusively for specialist retailers across the UK starting from 17th April 2023.

Crafted with precision and care, the whisky has been aged in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry Butt, personally chosen by Tomatin’s expert team. The whisky has been gently matured to create a complex flavour profile, offering a unique mix of dark sweetness and bitter notes that are perfect for whisky enthusiasts.

Rich and Intensely Sweet Spirit

The result is a rich and intensely sweet spirit on the nose, opening with notes of maple syrup, candied walnuts, prunes and rum-soaked sultanas. Despite being the sweetest wine in the world, the PX cask produces intensely bitter aromas such as dark chocolate, treacle, espresso and leather.

On the palate, the whisky offers a sweet, spiced guise with notes of cherry and plum liquors, golden syrup, and Jamaican ginger cake. It also preserves the signature distillery character of dried tropical fruits. The finish is a bold mix of dark sweetness, bitter notes and spice that lingers long after the last sip.

Presented in Tomatin’s premium bottle and single-cask packaging, the bottle is designed to reflect the quality of the whisky. Featuring the signature hogs head, symbolising Scottish hospitality, the bottle is presented in a solid display box, making it ideal for collectors or to gift someone special.

Graham Eunson, Master Distiller at Tomatin Distillery, said: “Our latest UK Exclusive is one of exceptional character. The whisky has been aged to perfection and the result is a rich and complex flavour profile. The interplay between this outstanding single malt and the PX cask is simply wonderful. The bitterness of dark chocolate, treacle, espresso and leather are expertly drawn out, while the signature distillery character shines through. We strive to create exceptional whiskies that capture the spirit of our Highland home, and this latest release is another fantastic example.”

Crafted in Tomatin’s Highland Home

Tomatin’s origins date back to the 15th century, with the first formal distillery established in 1897. Passing through generations of craftspeople working at Tomatin, many for their entire lives, the distillery is embedded in the community. Today Tomatin is renowned for its collection of smooth whiskies, comprising a core selection, limited-edition range, and premium archive collection.

Tomatin Single Malt is owned by the Japanese company Takara Shuzo International. Tomatin has been dedicated to protecting its craft, its environment and particularly its community, which is at the very heart of the brand.

Many of the craftspeople working on-site have been doing so their entire working lives, all working towards producing a wide range of single malts, beloved across the world.

New Brand Platform – To What Matters

In 2022, Tomatin launched its new brand platform, ‘To What Matters’ designed to remind people about the important things in life. ‘To What Matters’ is the latest chapter in the brand’s evolution; a positive call to arms that represents the spiritual DNA of Tomatin – a human belief in what’s truly important in life – the significant moments.

Recognition of the Highland Distillery’s craftsmanship continues to grow globally. In 2022, Tomatin was awarded ‘Scotch Whisky Producer of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Spirits Producer of the Year’ at the International Wine and Spirit Competition. In 2023, the Legacy single malt, part of the core range, was awarded Gold at the same competition, further cementing Tomatin’s position as a world-renowned distillery.
