Scottish craft spirits producer The Glasgow Distillery Company have announced the launch of a
collection of one-off releases of aged Speyside single malts inspired by Greek mythology.
The first release in the collection is Prometheus, a 26-year-old Speyside single malt of secret
origins that combines the smoky influence of peated barley with the wonderfully zesty and floral
notes typical of this region.
The name was inspired by the classical foundations of Greek Mythology, the great Titans, who were renowned for their strength, passion and charisma.
Prometheus was one of the most renowned Titans and is remembered today for his great gift to man: fire. When an angered Zeus took fire away from man, Prometheus rebelled and took a flame from the hearth of Mount Olympus to return it to man.
Today, the spirit of Prometheus lives on as champion of man and bringer of fire and like his namesake, Prometheus 26-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky combines the peaty fire of the islands with the rich, bright complexity of the Highlands.
Liam Hughes, CEO at The Glasgow Distillery Company, stated: “Prometheus 26YO is a great addition to our portfolio. We have been very fortunate to acquire such a special whisky. We will release a very limited amount in early 2015 and will be holding back some of the liquid for further maturation”.
Selected industry experts who have tasted the liquid have commented very positively indeed on the wonderful aromas noting the warm smokiness of Prometheus, which is usually more subdued in aged whiskies.
The bottle will be beautifully packaged in a bespoke presentation box, reflecting the majesty of the liquid inside.
“At The Glasgow Distillery Company, we aim to bring to our consumers only the finest quality spirits and in our opinion, Prometheus 26YO delivers this in full”, concluded Mr Hughes. Prometheus 26YO Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been bottled at 47% ABV and will be available from exclusive retailers and online from early 2015. This prized liquid is expected to retail at around £380 for a 70cl bottle.
