The edition is limited to 528 bottles and is launching exclusively with Heinemann Duty Free at Frankfurt airport.
The Glenlivet Kymah will be part of a Glenlivet portfolio activation running across Frankfurt airport in May 2014, which will also include Master Distiller’s Reserve and Nàdurra Oloroso.
The 16-year old whisky has been sourced from a single ex-sherry cask, is non-chill filtered and bottled at 60.1% abv.
The Glenlivet Kymah Single Cask Edition takes its name from the Kymah Burn, a tributary of the River Livet, in Speyside.
Jessica Spence, senior consumer and digital marketing manager, Pernod Ricard Travel Retail Europe, said: “We are very passionate about our Single Cask Editions range; each whisky highlights the subtle, complex and elegant style synonymous with The Glenlivet. Kymah’s journey is unique as it began high on the slopes of Carn na Glascoill in the Ladder Hills.
"We are very happy to have been able to offer Heinemann Duty Free, one of our key customers, the opportunity to select such a rare expression. What makes this activation even more exciting is that it’s presented alongside two other Travel Retail exclusives from The Glenlivet. We really look forward to seeing travellers’ and whisky enthusiasts’ responses to such a highly prized expression.”
