William Grant & Sons is proud to announce the launch of Rare Cask Reserves The Annasach 25 Year Old, an exciting release of four rare and finite signature blends, handcrafted from its cherished archives.
The exceptional range of whiskies released from the William Grant & Sons Rare Cask Reserves, which is exclusive to the United States, offers only a select few whisky specialists a rare insight into the artistry of whisky blending. The Annasach release is comprised of four ancient blended malt expressions, which have been personally selected by four key customers and blended by William Grant & Sons’ sixth Master Blender Brian Kinsman.
The four unique expressions of Rare Cask Reserves The Annasach 25 Year Old have been selected by whisky specialists from Binny’s, BevMo!, Total Wine and Spec’s Liquors, and are available exclusively in their respective stores due to the exclusive nature of the products that are available to all retailers. Employing his world-renowned whisky artistry, Master Blender Brian Kinsman has personally combed William Grant & Sons’ warehouse ledgers with the intention of blending some of the finest aged rare single malts and grains in the family’s collection. It is from these venerated stocks that these four key customers selected the malt whisky to create their custom blend.
Over the past 20 to 40 years, these whiskies have been hand selected for the private collection of the proud distilling family of William Grant, founder of The Balvenie and Glenfiddich. In this sense, Kinsman’s work lies firmly on the shoulders of giants – the five Master Blender predecessors who contributed to the family’s tradition of laying down the very best for the future.
For the first time in William Grant & Son’s history, these whiskies have been married and released for a limited number of true whisky enthusiasts, invited to craft their bespoke whisky under the creative guidance and tutelage of Master Blender Brian Kinsman.
“With remarkable foresight, the Grant family has built an unrivalled collection of Scotch whiskies. Some of the single malt that has been used to create Rare Cask Reserves The Annasach 25 Year Old is extremely rare and this is an incredibly exciting release from our archives.”
