TORONTO (June 13, 2022) - Crafted with consideration over decades, Bowmore® has an inherent appreciation for how each moment comes to bear on the character of the whisky and how times past have shaped today. Rooted in intentionality, we make our whiskies this way on purpose, shaping every drop, adding depth and distinction of flavour to shape our multi-dimensional single malt.

Key Takeaways:

  • Bowmore ARC-52 is the story of groundbreaking Aston Martin design bringing to life a striking decanter, unlike anything ever seen before, containing one of our oldest Bowmore whiskies ever released.
  • Matured for a remarkable 52 years in a marriage of two cask styles, married in two exact parts - 50% from an American Oak Hogshead and 50% from a European Oak Butt. This single malt promises unquestionable complexity but is perfectly balanced by bringing together these individual styles in equal parts.
  • Just 100 decanters of ARC-52 will be available in key global markets. Bowmore ARC-52 is set to hit shelves in Canada in late summer 2022 in very limited quantities.

ABOUT BOWMORE® For over 240 years, the Bowmore Distillery has been capturing the essence of Islay from the shores of its remote island home. Shaped by centuries of skill and tradition, Bowmore's single malt harnesses the power of this time in every single drop, defined by the past and savoured in the present. Time is defining at Bowmore® and we tirelessly harness the power of time to shape our whiskies. Our distillery's adherence to traditional production methods helps to shape the character of our fruity and smoky single malts. Today, we are amongst one of a few distilleries which still produces its own floor malted barley, hand-turned by a traditional wooden malt shovel and hand drawn machinery.  Water for the whiskies is specially drawn from the Laggan River, with its rich peaty overtones - the same Islay peat that fires the malt-drying kiln. Bowmore® Distillery's proximity to the sea is also vital in determining the final character of its spirit and gives a hint of sea air to the character. The legendary Bowmore® No. 1 Vaults is where most of the whiskies spend their long lives resting quietly in the cool, dark, damp cellars below sea level, oblivious to the waves thrashing the vault's sea-facing wall. Matured in oak casks, previously used for bourbon, sherry, or claret, over time developing rich and mellow flavours until the expertise of our whisky makers deems them ready for bottling.  It is this combination of peat, barley, sea breeze, water, wood, people, and tradition that makes Bowmore the exceptional single malt it is today.Time is marked on each and every bottle of Bowmore, proudly and boldly as a marker of where and when each one's journey began. This is our story of time. This is Bowmore; the Art of Time since 1779.www.bowmore.com
