Platinum Double Hit Rounds off 70th Anniversary Celebrations at  Douglas Laing & Co
Concluding their Platinum Anniversary celebrations, Douglas Laing & Co has unveiled two appropriately themed Limited Editions; a XOP Platinum Port Ellen 1982 Vintage Single Cask and the second release of Big Peat’s aged limited edition trilogy; the Platinum Edition Aged 26 Years Old.   2018 has seen the family firm celebrate 70 years of Whisky adventures with various special bottlings, a gala dinner and consumer activation throughout the anniversary year.   The XOP Platinum Port Ellen bottling has yielded just 273 bottles at a natural cask strength of 54.5% with the Whisky offering up a mouth-puckering palate of salt, tar, phenol, coal dust and mocha. The elusive Islay distillery was the preferred Single Malt of the family firm’s founder, and its rarity and prestige coupled with its elegant, unmistakable spirit profile renders it the undisputed choice for a celebratory bottling of this magnitude.   The Big Peat Platinum Edition is also bottled at a natural cask strength of 51.5%, and, with only 3,000 bottles in existence, the Whisky bursts with smoky barbecued meat plus a salty sweet character. In true Douglas Laing style, both Limited Edition bottlings are proudly offering without colouring or chill filtration.   Cara Laing, Director of Whisky at her family’s firm remarked “It’s been a genuinely landmark, momentous and unforgettable year at Douglas Laing. From the launch of our Old Particular “double pack” in February, collectively delivering 70 years of Whisky excellence with a 35 Years Old Single Cask Single Malt and a 35 Years Old Grain, to our global distributor conference followed by a very memorable gala dinner in August, the release of our XOP Platinum Single Cask series and now Big Peat’s Platinum bottling, we’ve truly honoured this significant milestone in our family history in more ways than my grandfather could ever have imagined. Here’s to the next 70 years of Whisky adventures!” Big Peat Platinum 26 Years Old Limited Edition and XOP Platinum Port Ellen Vintage 1982, are available from spirits specialists in the UK, Europe and Asia.   - ENDS -   ABOUT DOUGLAS LAING:   www.douglaslaing.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/douglaslaingwhisky Twitter: @dlaingwhisky   Established 70 years ago, Douglas Laing & Co. is a leading creator and purveyor of the finest Scotch Whiskies, specialising in Single Cask Single Malts and Small Batch Malt Scotch Whiskies.
