Glen Grant is a renowned brand among Speyside distilleries and one of Scotland's oldest, is known for its distinctive whisky-making process. Pioneered by founder James Grant in the 1800s, the distillery's unique long-necked stills with water-cooled purifiers have been a key to the light, fruity style that's become a hallmark of Speyside and Highland Scotch.
As we step into 2024, Glen Grant would be releasing a special Lunar New Year edition for whisky lovers, particularly in the Asian markets. The distillery has announced its Azure Dragon limited edition set for January 2024. These sets are a nod to Lunar Year Year tradition and make for an exquisite gift set for the family and boss.
Covering their core range of 10, 12, 15, and 18-year-old single malts, each set in the series showcases an elegant Azure Dragon dragon motif. The design is a thoughtful juxtaposition of the distillery's historic Victorian Garden, waterfall, river and the mythical creature. These sets be available for purchase in the first week of January 2024, a timely purchase for the New Year celebration season.
The packaging of these sets is a visual journey, starting with a depiction of a waterfall in the distillery's garden. This imagery gradually transitions into a trail of garden florals, leading to the distillery, symbolising both the prized water source and a sense of new beginnings. Hanging lanterns and the central 'Azure Dragon' represent growth and enthusiasm and infuse the packaging with an auspicious touch, along with a Lunar New Year greeting.
Adding to the uniqueness, each set includes a complimentary bottle stopper, shaped like a geometric dragon head. This has been a signature element since Glen Grant's first Lunar New Year release back in 2021.
As mentioned this limited edition set wil be available in Singapore from the first week of January at key retailers, including Cellarbration and Cold Storage. Online shoppers aren't left out either, with availability on e-commerce platforms like Amazon and Campari branded stores on Shopee and Lazada. The retail price starts at S$84 for the 10-year-old variant and goes up to S$268 for the 18-year-old.
Whether you're a Scotch aficionado or looking for a special gift, these set promises great taste from Glen Grant with a timely festive touch.
