Cask88, one of the world's leading suppliers of bespoke whisky, this week unveiled a historic bottling produced exclusively for The Merchistonian Club. For over 15 years, the team at Cask88 has been helping
world-class companies deliver legendary experiences with one-of-a-kind bottles of the finest whisky. The team specializes in all aspects of the perfect bottle including cask procurement, bottling, labels and final distribution.
Three generations of Merchistonians working in the whisky industry have come together for this exclusive release. Charles Maclean (65-69), Edward Davidson (86-89) and Patrick Costello (01-09) carefully selected a 1997 single malt from the widely acclaimed Clynelish
distillery. This 19 year old Highland whisky is from a single cask with only 350 bottles available worldwide, in Charles' tasting notes he mentions that the whisky is 'a splendid expression of Clynelish, embodying the make's sophistication and elegance.'
This outstanding whisky is complemented by two bottling options, a decanter or bottle. The decanter has been carefully designed by Glencairn Crystal to offer an impeccable presentation piece. Either option includes a red and blue box baring the old Merchiston
logo and selected bottle number (subject to availability). Patrick Costello notes, 'this whisky is the perfect wedding, birthday or reunion gift for any Merchistonian. It's a great collectible that contributes to the fundraising appeal for new sporting facilities.'
The Merchistonian Club Whisky is being launched as part of It's Time for Sport appeal, with the School embarking on their biggest sporting development in a generation. Facilities are being upgraded in order to expand offerings and allow student's from the School,
and beyond, to excel to new heights. These facilities will be among the best in Scotland. To date, two thirds of the target has been raised; enough to allow the initial phase of development to begin.
