Rare by Nature from Diageo

New Update


Diageo has announced the highly anticipated launch of the 2019 ‘Rare by Nature’ inspired Special Releases collection. Comprised of eight cask strength single malt Scotch whiskies from some of Scotland’s most renowned distilleries, this year’s line-up has been hand selected by Master Blender, Dr. Craig Wilson.

This year’s line-up was launched at an exclusive event at Somerset House in
Central London, where guests were guided through a sensorial journey;
transporting them from the hustle and bustle of the city to the wild Scottish habitats that inspired this year’s ‘Rare by Nature’ theme.

The collection celebrates whiskies with distinctive maturation techniques, rare finishes and unexpected taste profiles, with this year’s cask strength bottlings bringing to life each distillery’s unique character.

From the hand selected single malt Scotch to the visually arresting bottles, they each tell a strong story of the extraordinary place and the people who have shaped each dram. These prestigious and limited-edition bottlings offer fans an opportunity to collect and explore some of our rarest stocks.”
