Diageo releases Cardhu Gold Reserve

21 November, 2014

Diageo has lengthened its Cardhu single malt line of expressions with Gold Reserve.

The Speyside malt follows Cardhu Amber Rock, which launched earlier this year, is priced at £35 per bottle and also comes as part of a gift pack priced at £55. 

The new malt and pack is available in selected markets, with an emphasis on Europe.

According to Diageo, Maureen Robinson, master blender of Cardhu Gold, has collaborated with three ‘hosting experts’ for the pack.

A fig-scented candle, gold-marbled chocolates and cocktail recipes are said to work in harmony with the new 40% abv whisky.

Former Calooh Callay bar manager and Diageo UK whisky ambassador Andrea Montague, created Honeyed Gold and Golden Delicious cocktails, the recipes of which are listed in the Cardhu Gold Reserve pack.

Robinson said: “Carefully crafted in hand-picked toasted oak casks, this single malt has a warm toffee and fruity finish". Cardhu has a long tradition of creating generously flavoured malts and Cardhu Gold Reserve is a wonderful example of this.”
