Berry Bros. & Rudd Explores a Sense of Place in New Spirits Release

Berry Bros. & Rudd, the oldest wine and spirits merchant in Britain, has launched a new spirits collection exploring “A Sense of Place”, drawing inspiration from iconic and vibrant landscapes across the world and their impact on flavour.

The 2024 one-off collection, which is part of an annual release of curated spirits, is divided into two parts: Glens & Valleys and Coast & Shores, with each bottling reflecting the essence of their surroundings. The first release in the series, ‘Glens & Valleys’, includes 10 exceptional Scottish whisky distilleries, each rooted in landscapes as rich and varied as the spirits they produce.

Scotland’s rugged glens and serene valleys are carved by ancient glaciers and centuries of history. Many distilleries are strategically nestled in these locations, where access to pristine water sources is abundant. These waters, essential for the distilling process, play a crucial role in defining the character of each whisky.

From the foothills of the Grampian mountains to the Valley of the Garioch, the Glens & Valleys series recognises some of Scotland’s most scenic destinations and celebrates the heritage and artistry of the different distilleries.

The second release, ‘Coasts & Shores’, will be released in Autumn 2024 and will explore a selection of whiskies and rums from iconic coastal landscapes around the world.

Felix Dear (above), Spirits Curator at Berry Bros. & Rudd, said, “This release is a testament to nature and craftsmanship. As you explore these whiskies, you embark on a sensory expedition through some of Scotland’s most cherished and secluded spots.

“You’ll find whiskies that epitomise the distinctiveness of their respective distilleries alongside the landscape they reside in, while others have the additional influence of flavour through varied cask finishes. These special editions have been infused with distinct flavours from casks sourced through our long-standing relationships with world-class producers.”
