Big Peat limited edition “Peatrichor” cask strength Islay whisky

Big Peat Limited Edition “Peatrichor” Cask Strength Whisky

Big Peat, Islay malt scotch whisky brand from family-owned Douglas Laing & Co, has launched a special bottling for Summer 2021: Big Peat “Peatrichor” Limited Edition. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 53.8% alcohol, Big Peat’s latest whisky celebrates the Islay rainfall – after all, today’s rain is tomorrow’s Whisky! The word Peatrichor (or petrichor) describes the earthy scent produced with rain falls on dry earth / soil. 

Big Peat himself appears in a yellow rain jacket on the bottle’s packaging, as the heavens open on his island home of Islay. Just over 5,000 bottles of this limited edition release are available, offered without colouring or chill-filtration. 

Chris Leggat, Douglas Laing’s CEO comments: “As a brand, Big Peat is obsessed with both spirit quality and provenance. This latest release and accompanying marketing campaign brings to life the ultimate distillation of Islay and is definitely unmistakably Islay in style with notes of peat smoke, damp earth and a leathery charm.” 

If you’d like to try Big Peat’s “Peatrichor” for yourself, then this limited edition whisky will be available from May 2021.
