Last night (Tuesday December 3), I attended a tasting of Balblair vintages. We tasted five whiskies, 2003, 1997, 1990, 1983 and 1969, prefaced by a glass of Balblair’s base spirit.
The wines will be represented by World of Patria in the market and are due to debut at this year’s TFWA World Exhibition.
The Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore range includes Cuvee ‘Torri di Credazzo’ Extra Dry, Di Cartizze, Millesimato Brut and Millesimato Extra Dry.
According to the brand, the wines are presented in an “elegant four-colour printed tubes with a unique illustration designed to convey the brand’s understated, premium Italian credentials”.
The gift packs are priced at £19 (€24) and the wines range from 11.5-12% abv.
Cristina Follador, marketing director Follador, said: “We recognise the time is now right to establish our brand internationally and travel retail presents us with the perfect shop window to do this.”
