Torabhaig Legacy 2017 has arrived and due to high demand, we’ve made the decision to sell the bottles via lottery. Here’s how you can get your hands on one.
The first whisky from Torabhaig Distillery is here and, much like the rest of the whisky world, we are delighted. We even did a whole blog post about it. It’s called Torabhaig Legacy 2017 and it’s a single vintage, single malt Scotch whisky matured in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled at 46% ABV.
But it’s not those details that have got people so excited and ready to throw their money at it. It’s the fact that it’s the inaugural dram from only the second-ever licensed single malt Scotch whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye. That means this release does come with certain realities. Which is that there is a limited supply of bottles and loads and loads of people want it.
Because we want to be as fair as possible, we’ve decided that a bottle lottery is the best way to sell this spirit (for more details we refer you to this sweary and handily post from 2016). We will approach this lottery the same as we have others before, by listing the timeline below, and promising that we will adorn the bottle with the message: “I hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.”
Now that the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ and have been taken care of, let’s get straight to the ‘when’ and ‘where’.
