Tomatin, the Scotch whisky distiller, has unveiled a limited-edition single malt series, called ‘Five Virtues’.
The series draws its inspiration from the nature’s elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – and comprises of five single malts, each with a limited run of 6,000 bottles. Using elements such as heavily charred oak, Bourbon barrels, and (unusually for Tomatin) peated malt, the range offers five malts each with their own distinct complexity and character.
The malts are packaged in cartons adorned with contemporary Scottish art, created by abstract artist Eva Ullrich, who was tasked with visually representing the five elements and the complexities within the different distillations involved in the series.
The Wood and Fire expressions (from £49.99) are available now, while Earth, Metal and Water will be released later this year.
Jennifer Masson, Tomatin Marketing Manager, said: “As our brand grows we are increasingly inspired by global concepts and the Five Virtues series was born out of this inspiration. We wanted to release a creative limited edition series focussing on the effects of different cask maturations, while linking it to a wider concept.”
