Just like a butterfly, this Islay Scotch needed 25 years (and a Bourbon cask pupa) to morph into a beautiful pour before being bottled as part of The Butterflies series for Antique Lions Of Spirits (ALOS). The labels are an homage to old Moon Import bottles, and feature lost plates by the same artist, discovered in Pepi Mongiardino's collections.

This is one of 248 bottles drawn, so catch it before it flutters away!

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
In 2007, an unopened bottle of Bowmore bottled in 1850, was sold at auction for £29,400.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
