Isabella, director of production, said: “This collection celebrates the exceptional whisky distilleries based across Scotland and it’s a privilege to be able to bring these special whiskies to market.

“The taste, experience and emotion conjured by each drink has been our absolute focus, creating accessible and unpretentious whiskies to encourage the adventurous exploration of flavour.

“As a brand we’re constantly experimenting and discovering, it’s been a really exciting time to bring together components from dozens of distilleries and create a bespoke range crafted to suit each taste whether that is sweet, complexly spicy or gently smoky.”

To celebrate its milestone market launch, the brand will commission the world’s first Whisky Villanelle over the coming weeks – a strict 19-line six-stanza poem structure.
