New Bowmore Whisky Bottle

New Bowmore Whisky Bottle

Just 53 bottles of the limited edition Bowmore 40 Years Old will be released for sale worldwide. Priced at £6,500 per bottle, this is the ultimate luxury gift for the Single Malt whisky connoisseur.

Handcrafted to perfection, this remarkable spirit has been maturing since 29th March 1969 in the specially selected American bourbon cask (cask number 2161 to be precise), gently imparting its unique and finest flavours into the malt. Inspired by the rugged Islay coastline, every bottle is a work of art. Painstakingly designed by two of Scotland’s foremost glass-blowers Brodie Nairn and Nichola Burns, each one is hand-blown and sculpted using molten glass and stones collected from the Islay shore – no two bottles are the same.  Brodie Nairn comments on the partnership:  "We are delighted to have been commissioned by Bowmore to create the Bowmore 40 Years Old.  Our approach to creating glassware is very similar to the approach Bowmore take with their whiskies; hand-crafted and born from the environment.  All our work is free-blown and very organic in nature.  For us, the Islay coastline was the natural inspiration for the bottle design.
