As one of the most well-known poets of the Romantic period, Lord Byron’s words stole the hearts of women; now the essence of his love poetry has been captured in a bottle with SPEY Lord Byron single malt Scotch whisky.
With its elegant bottle design and smooth, delicate taste – as well as exclusive status – SPEY Lord Byron oozes romance, making it the ideal gift for your loved one whatever the occasion, be it birthday, Christmas or another celebration.
The limited edition whisky has been released by Speyside Distillery to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lord Byron’s marriage to Lady Annabelle Millbanke – and only 1,200 bottles of the rare expression have been produced.
SPEY’s long history with the famous poet began after his 1815 wedding, when Lord Byron was said to have gifted King George III with a cask of his favourite SPEY whisky in celebration of the occasion.
Speyside Distillery CEO John Harvey McDonough says, “We are immensely proud of our association and history with one of the world’s greatest romantic poets. SPEY Lord Byron is smooth and full of charm – like the man himself – and we truly believe that he would have been overjoyed to have a single malt created in his name.”
SPEY Lord Byron has a warm and nutty flavor with a soft sweet toffee aftertaste and a fresh, fruity lingering note which soothes the palate like the finest warm honey. At 46% ABV, 70c, it has an RRP of £95. Stockists can be found at www.speysidedistillery.co.uk
