Introducing our Yellow Edition

April 21, 2023

Brave New Spirits proudly presents our Yellow Edition range. This is an exclusive selection of whiskies specially chosen to reflect the whisky regions of Scotland alongside distillery character. With The Yellow Editions, we aim to present whiskies to delight connoisseurs the world over, whiskies which have a focus on provenance, individuality, quality, and of course flavour. 

The Yellow Edition range of whiskies is crafted in small batches with great attention to detail. With regard to taste, we focus on the world’s most famous casks used to mature Scotch whisky. These are the finest quality oak casks from Spain, the USA, France or even further afield, previously used to mature some of the world’s finest sherries, bourbons & wines. The label on each bottle displays the distillery name, information about the cask in which the whisky matured,  and how many bottles were produced.

The first releases of Yellow Edition includes 14 wonderful bottles:

• Glen Moray 14 years old (57.2% abv), matured in first fill bourbon barrel (141 bottles in total)

• Highland Park 8 years old (65.5% abv), matured in first fill Bordeaux red wine barrique (269 bottles in total)

The Yellow Edition range features delights from across the whisky regions of Scotland including the Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, Islay and the Islands. It offers a diverse range of age statements and a wide array of cask styles in use. We are incredibly lucky to have access to whiskies that are often difficult to come by such as Dailuaine, Teaninich, and Glenturret Ruadh Maor. As an independent bottler our job is to make sure spirit from these distilleries matures in carefully selected casks that allow spirit to display distillery character balanced with perfect maturation and cask influence. We own a vast range of casks, largely due to the passion of Alex our Director. Amongst our inventory, we have some incredibly special casks such as wine barriques from Pauillac and Chateau Lafite, in Bordeaux. These exceptional casks impart a subtle but different influence to the spirit maturing within. This gives our customers the opportunity to enjoy whiskies from familiar distilleries, with a twist and truly memorable flavours.

Yellow Edition offers an ever-changing selection of classic, single cask Scotch Whiskies. A range to explore!
