Burn Stewart Master Distiller, Ian MacMillan, was charged with creating a product which would be more in keeping with its original north east recipe. The result is a slightly smoky taste that maintains the distinctiveness of Black Bottle.
Burn Stewart will launch Black Bottle in new packaging, re-introducing the black flask-shaped bottle which was the original inspiration behind the name of the brand. This iconic bottle was used by the Graham brothers up until the outbreak of the First World War when supplies from the German manufacturer ceased and they were forced to revert to a standard green glass bottle which has remained until the present day.
Black Bottle will be available to buy in the United States beginning in October 2014 in selected on and off trade outlets.
Recommended Retail Price $24.99, 40% ABV
