The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage. Expertly crafted by Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie, in unique collaboration with Kingsman film franchise director Matthew Vaughn, to mark the upcoming release of The King’s Man.
The GlenDronach is revered for the dedication to exquisite sherry cask matured Single Malt since 1826. Like the Kingsman creed, our values have remained constant; impossible perfection built on unshakeable tradition. Matured in Oloroso sherry casks with a final maturation in Pedro Ximénez casks from Spain, this twenty-nine-year-old Single Malt is a masterful expression of exceptional complexity and depth, truly befitting a Kingsman.
This exceptional 1989 Vintage is inspired by the oldest bottle housed at The GlenDronach Distillery – a twenty-nine year-old whisky bottled in 1913, just before the outbreak of the first World War. Three friends had each purchased a bottle before leaving for war, vowing to open them together on their return. Tragically, only one of them returned home. Having never opened his bottle, his family later gifted it to the distillery, where it remains unopened and displayed in remembrance of fallen friends.
Only 3,052 bottles available worldwide from 1st September 2020. Each luxurious box is adorned with the iconic bespoke Kingsman insignia and bears the signatures of both Dr. Rachel Barrie and Matthew Vaughn.
