Tomintoul launches trio of travel-retail whiskies

Tomintoul is launching a trio of travel retail-exclusive whiskies inspired by the Speyside distillery's surroundings. 

 

The new single malts – Tundra, Tarn, and Tor – each showcase a different maturation and come with bespoke packaging that pays homage to the landscape features after which they are named. 

 

Tundra is matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels. The Cairngorms National Park, where the distillery is located, is one of few places outside the Arctic where areas of tundra can be found due to the extremely low temperatures it experiences in winter. The artwork on the bottle packaging shows the Cairngorms Plateau, looking toward the western peak of Sgòr Gaoith.

 

Tarn is a peated single malt which takes its name from the old Norse word 'tjorn', meaning pond. The Cairngorms National Park is home to many tarns, some of which are bordered by ancient peatland. The artwork for this release features the summit of Ben Avon.

 

Tor has been finished in oloroso sherry butts. In Scots Gaelic, a 'torr' is a rocky outcrop at the summit of a hill or mountain. The Cairngorm mountain range is home to many granite tors. The pack artwork features Loch A'an, a remote freshwater loch in the Cairngorms National Park.

 

Tomintoul Tundra, Tarn, and Tor will be available in one-litre format from World Duty Free stores at airports globally, with recommended prices of £40, £45, and £55 respectively.
