Douglas Laing The Epicurean Blend Malt Whisky
Douglas Laing The Epicurean Blend Malt Whisky....$44.99
A dram described as “city born and bred”, Douglas Laing’s The Epicurean is a marriage of some of the finest Lowland Malts; bringing together the best that the East and the West of Scotland have to offer. Bursting with barley, citrus, floral and herbal notes, this Malt Whisky is packaged in a premium gift tube featuring The Epicurean himself. No attention to detail is spared, from the cocktail shaker, crystal decanter and barley husk illustrations, to the charmingly rhythmic pack copy that well and truly brings the spirit and its characterful namesake to life.
Fred Laing, Managing Director and 2nd Generation in the family business, says:
“Back in 1930s Glasgow, The Epicurean, as everyone knew him, was the life and soul of any party. Wherever he popped in for a dram, you’d find him surrounded by a circle of admirers, regaling them with captivating tales of derring-do, of chance encounters in foreign climes and of the fine food and drink he feasted upon his travels. Our new expression is in honour of that roguish character who never fails to deliver charm, charisma and just a little bit of cheek. Any likeness to Douglas Laing’s Managing Director is purely coincidental!
In line with the family philosophy, Douglas Laing’s The Epicurean is proudly without colouring or chill-filtration, and bottled at high alcohol strength, 46.2%.
