Scottish Leader introduces limited-edition festive season gift packs
Issued by August Collective - Nov 6th 2018, 09:05
Scottish Leader has launched limited-edition festive season gift packs, featuring the trendsetting I See A Different You creative collective from Soweto, comprising Innocent Mukheli and Vuyo Mpantsha.
There are three eye-catching gift packs to choose from, one for each of the Scottish Leader blended whisky variants, including Original, Signature and 12-year-old. Each comes with two complimentary whisky glasses. Buy all three gift sets to complete your own collection, or to offer as fabulous gifts to family, friends, colleagues or even your boss!
The trio of Scottish Leader whiskies are all characterised by a taste profile that’s slightly smoky, sweet, rich and smooth.
Scottish Leader Original is a well-balanced blend with subtle hints of sherry, spice, and smoke. Scottish Leader Signature is slightly smokier with noticeably more citrus, honey and spice notes. Scottish Leader 12-year-old, the flagship of the internationally renowned collection, is supremely well-rounded, offering an outstanding balance of rich and creamy all wrapped up in one delectable blend. With sherry and hints of citrus on the nose, a smooth and creamy mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish, this whisky is very special. No wonder it was awarded a prestigious gold medal at the World Whiskies Awards in the UK earlier this year!
Scottish Leader is crafted by a single, dedicated blending team with nearly 400 years’ combined experience. These experts offer a wealth of experience and skill, as well as a forward-thinking, dynamic outlook. Lead blender McCallum’s signature on each bottle is her personal guarantee of the commitment and high values she and her team bring to the ancient art of whisky blending while looking to the future.
The brand’s new perspective ethos is the driving force behind its collaboration in South Africa with I See A Different You. The two entities share a belief that new perspectives lead to richer possibilities, together working to establish a shared narrative with an Afro-optimistic outlook. It’s aimed at those prepared to see beauty in the every day, those who are slightly alternative and inquisitive in nature.
Scottish Leader’s I See A Different You gift packs will be available (while stocks last) from a wide range of participating liquor outlets nationwide, from early November.
The retail prices will range from around R180 to R220 and R320 for the Original, Signature, and 12-year-old gift packs respectively.
