Glen Garioch: Set to release new malt

Aberdeenshire distillery Glen Garioch has been chosen by Air France KLM with a special whisky to celebrate the airline’s recent success.

Air France KLM is the market leader in Scotland, flying 1.2 million people in the last year and carrying 1 in 4 long haul passengers, according to their media release.

Senior staff visited Glen Garioch earlier this year to select a cask of malt which has been bottled at cask strength to be enjoyed by KLM customers.

Henri Hourcade, General Manager of Air France KLM, UK and Ireland, said: “Investing in local businesses and people is important to KLM and we wanted to mark our continued success in Scotland by partnering with a distillery with such a rich history and beautiful whiskies.”

David Wilson, Sales and Marketing Director at Morrison Bowmore Distillers, added: “We were delighted to team up with KLM to pick a cask at the Glen Garioch distillery earlier this year. The KLM staff picked an excellent 14-year-old with wonderful sweet roasted almond notes and a lovely smooth vanilla finish.”
