Benriach will release less than 40 bottles of the oldest whisky it has ever made, Benriach 50, five of which will be available in Global Travel Retail markets across the globe.

Benriach has unveiled its oldest Scotch whisky to date, Benriach 50 Years Old. The launch of the new bottling from the Brown-Forman brand will take place at the TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference in Singapore.

Just 37 bottles of the whisky will be made available across the world, five of which have been allocated for Global Travel Retail (GTR). The whisky itself comes from Bourbon cask 2383, which was filled with unpeated Benriach new make spirit on September 21, 1966.

“We are thrilled to offer five of the just 37 bottles of Benriach 50 Years Old to our valued GTR partners,” said Stéphane Morizet, marketing director GTR Brown-Forman. “It is the finest portrayal of Benriach’s fruit-laden style, with unrivaled complexity and luxurious refinement. The GTR allocation underscores the importance of this market to Brown-Forman and highlights our commitment to delivering exceptional luxury editions to travelers.”

On the nose, the whisky offers aromas of oak, chestnut, Maraschino cherry, and gentle acacia honey. The palate features flavors of honeyed dates, delicate oak spices and lingering apple, alongside notes of pear and grapefruit.

Bottled at 44.5% ABV, Benriach 50 will be available worldwide for £25,000 (US$31,300) per bottle.

Last year, the Speyside distillery added another decades old whisky to its luxury portfolio, The Forty.
