Bladnoch Distillery Expands it’s “Classic Collection”

Bladnoch Liora made from a duo of ex-Bourbon and New Oak casks joins the ‘Classic Collection’ of whiskies

205-year-old Lowland distillery, Bladnoch, are proud to announce the newest addition to their ‘Classic Collection’ of Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whiskies: Liora. The name, Liora, has its origins in Hebrew, meaning ‘the gift of light’ and is the distillery’s first ever expression bottled at Distiller’s Strength of 52.2% ABV.

Liora is created using an exceptional pairing of casks: Bourbon and New Oak, and sits alongside the likes of Alinta, Vinaya and Samsara in Bladnoch’s ‘Classic Collection’ of whiskies. Master Distiller, Dr. Nick Savage, elaborates that “Liora embodies the delicate balance between the intensity of the New Oak and the sweetness of the Bourbon casks. On the nose you can expect juicy fresh cut apples along with toasted caramel and floral notes. As you taste Liora, on the palate you’ll get caramelised toffee apples along with peppery spices and fresh cut oak. A truly magnificent dram with a long finish with a slight warming dryness.”

Like all Bladnoch’s whiskies, Liora is hand-crafted using only the finest local ingredients resulting in a true Lowlands experience. It’s made using the pristine water from the River Bladnoch that flows alongside the distillery as well as Scottish barley which creates a rich, flavourful whisky that is best savoured.

Bottled at 52.2%, and without chill-filtration and with natural colour, Liora will be available in the UK, online via Bladnoch’s website and in their Visitor Centre at the Distillery. In the coming months, Liora will also be sold around the world through Bladnoch’s network of distributors.
