Dr Bill Lumsden, distilling and whisky creation director, is known for travelling the world to search out the best oak casks, but this project dates back from the early 1990s before he joined the company. "It's no secret in our industry that it's the wood that makes the whisky. Having discovered these casks and sampled them, I realised then what a jewel we had," he says. The final recipe is from Lumsden and his team. "It's a real pleasure to watch the original experiment see the light of day at last and still be here to celebrate it," he adds.
