LONGMORN 18Y0 22YO MASTER with boxes

Longmorn, a Scotland Speyside single malt Scotch, introduced two new whiskies and unveiled contemporary new packaging.

Longmorn has made the commitment to release single malt whiskies matured for no less than 18 years, beginning with the newly released 18-Year-Old and 22-Year-Old expressions.

Longmorn traces back to 1894. Its journey began with globe-trotting and entrepreneurial founder John Duff establishing the Speyside distillery and introducing innovative export methods, including its own railway, designed to rapidly transport the single malt whisky directly from the doors of the distillery around the globe.

Today, Longmorn remains one of the rare Scotch whisky distilleries to have ceaselessly produced whisky. Both the new 18-Year-Old and 22-Year-Old single malt whiskies are non-chill filtered, matured primarily in American oak casks, and presented at cask strength, which is a testament to the distillery’s commitment to quality. These single malts are aged in a careful curation of barrels and hogsheads to express a new depth of flavor.

“The 18-Year-Old and 22-Year-Old whiskies, like all Longmorn Single Malts, feature the creamy toffee profile which is quintessentially Longmorn,” Kevin Balmforth, Chivas Brothers Cask Expert, said in a news release. “They espouse this whisky’s spirit of endurance and are intended to be savoured, representing Longmorn’s dedication to quality.”

In addition to signifying Longmorn’s commitment to releasing only single malts aged 18 years or more, the 18-Year-Old and 22-Year-Old expressions mark the debut of an elevated new look for the 130-year-old brand. The decanter-style bottle brings to life the heritage story of Longmorn through unique design elements such as the vibrant golden arches delicately placed on a deep purple background reminiscent of the historic railway.

The new design will be reflected across the brand portfolio and each permanent release, introducing consumers to the complex history of Longmorn and their signature Speyside style of whisky with each pour.

“This year is Longmorn’s 130th anniversary,” Jayne Murphy, Marketing Director of Malts at Chivas Brothers, said. “Throughout that time, Longmorn has never stopped producing, refining, and perfecting single malt whisky of the signature Speyside style from its inception by entrepreneur John Duff to today.”

The 18-Year-Old and 22-Year-Old whiskies are priced at $279.99 and $439.99 respectively and available to purchase at retailers across the country.
