The Cù Bòcan brand is named after a mythical Highland hellhound which was rumoured to haunt the village of Tomatin and was launched in 2013 as a lightly peated alternative to the traditional fruity flavours of Tomatin single malt.
Bottled at a strength of 50%, the whisky is matured in first fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. Boasting warm, festive flavours with a gentle touch of peat smoke, it is fitting that the bottle comes with a special Cù Bòcan branded glass – ideal for gifting at this time of year. There are just 9000 bottles of this limited edition available worldwide.
Pickering’s Gin, a fabulous collection of the perfect gin. I was so pleased that I received a couple of samples to try. It is a different direction, but still connected with Whisky, for they used casks from the whisky regions of Scotland.
I am a fan! And not just of the peacock and their peacocktails. It is just a fabulous Gin for amazing adventures.
Highland based Tomatin Distillery have announced the launch of a rare Vintage 1988 single malt as part of their Cù Bòcan range. The casks used to mature the spirit were home to a popular heavily peated Islay whisky in their past lives to create a unique limited edition.
Just 2200 bottles of the malt, which have been aged for 28 years in sherry casks, are available.
