From Crop to Consumption

Douglas Laing unveils Old Particular limited edition collection: The Spiritualist Series

Leading independent bottler, Douglas Laing & Co, today announces a limited edition collection within its renowned Old Particular Single Cask Scotch Whisky range. The “Spiritualist” Series is unveiled with the launch of Old Particular “Balance” Edition; Islay 14 Years Old.

Inspired by the global “mindfulness” movement, the family firm says its Spiritualist Series is offered to those who are actively seeking some time out from hectic daily lives and investing time in moments of tranquillity. The concept is brought to life on the Single Cask Scotch Whisky packaging by a mesmerising, whimsical, bespoke illustration, in island-blue colourways.  

Cara Laing, Director of Whisky in the family firm, comments:

“Now more than ever, we need to consciously take time out for some calm and solitude, taking a moment to rest and recharge. Our Spiritualist Series “Balance” bottling offers a departure from the chaos; the ying to the daily yang. From one of our favourite heavily peated Distilleries on Islay, this archetypal Islay Single Malt serves up a rich, earthy peat character balanced by sweet smoke and honeyed barley. Best served with time to dwell, linger and contemplate…”
