Bowmore 1999 Alambic Classique Miniature 

Alambic Classique are a German wholesaler and importer based in Bad Wörishofen, Germany. Established in 1981, the company deals in speciality spirts including whisky, rum, cognac, armagnac and more. The company started bottling its own brands in 2005. Single malts from Ben Nevis and Ledaig have always been firm favourites, and the portfolio also includes Single Cask, Small Batch, Double-Matured and Very Old vintage bottlings from many different distilleries. A lesser known bottler, Alambic Classique have targeted specialist retailers and small restaurants to represent their releases, which over the years has made them difficult to come by.

This whisky was distilled in 1999 and bottled in 2012.

Islay’s oldest working distillery, Bowmore was established in 1779 and is now regarded as one of the most popular malts not only on Islay, but in the whole of Scotland. The distillery was acquired by Stanley P. Morrison in 1963, ushering in an era of iconic single malts, including the legendary Black Bowmore, credited by many as the genesis of whisky collecting, bottled in 1993. The distillery was bought under the control Suntory the year after (they had been stakeholders since 1989), and it remains one of the most collectible brands in Scotch whisky today. Bowmore is one of the few remaining Scottish distilleries to use its own floor maltings, providing them with 40% of their requirements. The unique microclimate in their iconic No.1 vaults shares very little with the angels, meaning casks are readily available for independent labels like this, many of which are spectacular.

One of 60 bottles.
