The Whisky Show in London was founded by The Whisky Exchange (TWE) and GW Publishing in November 2009, and has run two highly successful events. This year, TWE has split from GW Publishing and The Whisky Exchange is hosting its own Show in London. As at previous Shows, they will be launching a number of rare, limited edition bottlings at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show, including some new releases from Speciality Drinks and The Whisky Exchange.
To kick things off with a bang, Elements of Islay will be unveiling the inaugural bottling of Kh1, the first independent bottling of single malt from Islayâ€™s newest distillery. Available only at The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show, this lively, fresh young peaty dram is sure to be a massive hit with Show visitors and is one of the most limited Elements of Islay bottlings ever released, being bottled at full strength from a single cask. Kh1 will be accompanied at the show by at least four other exciting new bottlings in the Elements of Islay range, including Bn1, Lp3 and possibly even Pe5.
TWE will also be launching the second expression in our Masterpieces series at this yearâ€™s Show: a specially selected Bowmore from 1993. Bottled from a single ex-bourbon cask, this Bowmore is considerably peatier than normal for the distillery and promises to be a worthy successor to last yearâ€™s Masterpiece, the critically-lauded Longmorn 1978.
