This awesome cask strength 13 year old Islay single malt was laid to rest at the Caol Ila distillery in 2007 and bottled for the Spirit of Art series from The Distillers' Art Ltd in February 2020.
Distillers' Art have collaborated with local artists to combine stunning fine art with single cask whiskies bottled at natural cask strength. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes with a limited edition hand-signed 465mm x 325mm print from the artist.
Yielded from single barrel number 300684 at a natural cask strength 55.4% ABV, this is one of just 223 bottles and comes complete with original presentation tube and limited edition print housed safely inside the tube.
The beautiful print “Caol Isla” is from an original abstract painting by Scottish artist, Brian McFie - see images inset for print detail.
The Cask and Canvas, a celebration of whisky and art.
