Two Cities Two Whiskies
We’re excited to announce a creative evolution of two of our most treasured whiskies from our permanent collection. The flavours are untouched, but there are some eye-catching differences to the whiskies now known simply as Artist Blend and Glasgow Blend. Whether you remember them as the award-winning Great King Street family, or you’re hearing about them for the first time, here’s the inside story...
WHISKIES AND CITIES WITH BIG PERSONALITIES
There can be no individual whisky that represents the whole of Scotland – the birthplace of Scotch is far too multi-faceted for that. And we like to think about Compass Box whiskies the same way – endlessly nuanced, where no two are ever the same. This pair is inspired by two fantastic cities – Edinburgh and Glasgow – and by the golden age of blending described in a book we love, ‘Whisky’ by Aeneas MacDonald.
CREATIVITY INSIDE AND OUT
New labels go straight to the heart of these whiskies. Glasgow Blend is a full-bodied Scotch, a reflection of that city’s traditional preference for a richer, more flavourful style. It’s a real character, just like the city’s Duke of Wellington statue pictured on the label with a traffic cone for a hat.
Artist Blend is a whisky made to entertain. Its label showcases an artist in front of the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh, signifying the creative potential of such a versatile blend and a nod to the artistic endeavour that the city is famous for.
PRIZED BY BARTENDERS,
PERFECT FOR YOUR DRINKS CABINET
Both blends work wonders in the hands of inventive bartenders – professional and aspiring – while also hitting the spot neat for even the most discerning malt whisky enthusiasts. And if you’re after advice from the pros, this month Rosey Mitchell and Manacháin Monaghan – winners of our global bartending competition The Circle – will be revealing exactly how they like to drink them.
