Distell International has created a single cask exclusive Deanston bottling for Lotte Duty Free and Singapore Changi Airport. This extremely limited whisky – just 324 bottles are available – is available now exclusively in Lotte Duty Free’s wines and spirits stores at Singapore Changi.

Filled on 24th September 2004, Deanston 2004 Palo Cortado Cask Finish is bottled at a cask strength 55.1% ABV. With a nose of chocolate and dried fruit, candied orange, oak spice, vanilla fudge and gentle fruity sherry, the liquid delivers typical Deanston notes of honey and a deep maltiness that are balanced with the sherry influence bringing mulled spices, orange marmalade and toasty oak. The finish is fruity with floral honey and a lingering note of sweet vanilla.

The RSP of Deanston 2004 Palo Cortado Cask Finish is S$220.

The exclusive launch will be supported by promotional activity including a gift-with-purchase offer across the Deanston portfolio with purchases over S$250 at Lotte Duty Free stores in Changi and a digital campaign on both iShopChangi and Lotte Duty Free’s channels.

Derek Scott, Distell General Manager AsiaPac Travel Retail & Development Markets, said: “As international travel begins to show extremely positive signs of recovery, it’s vital that we welcome shoppers back into stores with new and exciting products that reinforce the differentiation that travel retail offers. We’re delighted to partner with Lotte Duty Free to offer this exclusive bottling of Deanston to shoppers at Singapore’s iconic Changi Airport. Bottled at cask strength having been finished in a rare Palo Cortado cask, this bottling should appeal strongly to existing Deanston drinkers but also whisky connoisseurs who appreciate this kind of natural presentation which highlights the quality of Deanston’s spirit and benefits of meticulous cask selection.”

Quote from Lotte Duty Free: “Exclusivity is one of the key pillars of our retail offer at Singapore Changi. This exclusive Deanston bottling is exactly the kind of highly desirable limited edition which resonates with shoppers looking for something different and brings excitement to the dynamic single malt Scotch category.”
