Known for its innovative blends, Compass Box has spent the past 20 years showcasing that blends are capable of sitting on a level playing field with single malt whiskies in the Scotch market. As a celebration of its 20th year in the industry, Compass Box has announced the global launch of Hedonism Felicitas.

The limited-edition bottling pays homage to the whisky that originally launched the brand all those years ago, as founder and whiskymaker John Glaser explained: “Launching our business with Hedonism was widely seen at the time as unusual, because so few Scotch whisky companies bottle 100% grain whiskies. I am hopeful that over the years, we have shown people how delicious good quality Scotch grain whisky can be and as a result, Hedonism has become a signature whisky for us. For these reasons, we love to create special, limited edition Hedonism bottlings to commemorate important milestones and events.”

Since 23rd October, 2000 the team at Compass Box have released more than 100 whiskies, taking inspiration from the wine world for its different uses of oak, while also pushing for greater transparency in whisky through its 2016 Transparency Campaign.

Hedonism Felicitas was created to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Compass Box and draws together three grain whiskies, each distilled in a different decade. Led by whiskymaker James Saxon, this vibrant and stately expression is bottled at a higher strength. Saxon added: “Hedonism Felicitas is intended to convey the good fortune, happiness and gratitude we feel having met and worked with so many remarkable people.”

Hedonism Felicitas is bottles at 53% ABV at a RSP of £140.
