New family-owned, independent bottler Halcyon Spirits has debuted its first release, a single cask Macallan 30 Year Old.
Based in Aberdeenshire, the whisky was eveloped by brothers Daniel and Craig Milne, who also co-founded global auction platform Whisky Hammer and whisky e-retailer Still Spirit.
The Macallan 30 Year Old has been matured in a first fill sherry cask and bottled by Halcyon Spirits at 49.8% ABV cask strength.
Boasting a mahogany colour, it boasts oak notes combined with spices and vanilla toffee hints on the palate.
The release follows the recent completion of a cask warehouse housing over 2,000 casks in Aberdeenshire.
To support global action on climate change, Halcyon Spirits will fund the planting of ten trees for every bottle sold, meaning this inaugural release alone will result in 2,380 trees being planted.
Daniel Milne, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Halcyon Spirits, said: “Launching Halcyon Spirits has been a true passion project for my brother Craig and I.
“We are in a fortunate position to have direct access to a fantastic selection of quality maturing whisky casks, which makes the journey of selection and bottling incredibly exciting.”
Priced at £2,950 per bottle, only 238 bottles are available for purchase online via the Halcyon Spirits website.
