Special limited edition blended Scotch whisky - Dewar’s Legacy Collection 1893

New Delhi, India, December 29, 2013 --( Delhi Duty Free, India’s largest duty free retail space at Terminal- 3, IGI Airport in association with Bacardi Global Travel Retail has launched the limited-edition blended Scotch whisky - Dewar’s Legacy Collection 1893.

Delhi Duty Free, will be the first duty free in the country to sell the limited edition Dewar’s Legacy Collection 1893 to international travelers.

This special limited edition blended Scotch whisky commemorates the first Royal Warrant awarded to Dewar's 120 years ago. The world’s most awarded blended Scotch whisky; Dewar's is also the only whisky to have received a Royal Warrant from every British monarch since 1893 when Queen Victoria recognised the exceptional quality of Dewar's. Only 1,000 individually-numbered bottles of the Dewar's Legacy 1893 will ever be released.

The Dewar's Legacy 1893 release has been skilfully blended from 20 rare and long-aged whiskies, many of which were used by Dewar’s founder, John Dewar.

Presented in the finest hand-blown crystal decanter with handcrafted silverware made by Scottish craftsmen, the design is inspired by the dirk, the Scottish ceremonial dagger. The dirk is decorated with a thistle motif with detailing in 22-carat gold, and has as its centrepiece nine sapphires inspired by the famous Stuart Sapphire, owned by many Scottish kings before it became part of Queen Victoria’s Imperial State Crown. The decanter is housed in a burr walnut and gold metal box, which displays some of the many prestigious awards won by Dewar’s.

Said Mr. Duncan Lawley, CEO, Delhi Duty Free Services “Delhi Duty Free is viewed as a premium retail destination with an extremely brand conscious audience who travel frequently. We have always endeavored to provide our customers an opportunity to experience and purchase the most exclusive products from around the world.

Tasting Notes:
Serve neat or with a dash of water and savour its complex flavours.

The palate is rounded, creamy and sweet, with enticing flavours of vanilla, toffee and mature oak, balanced with complex-yet-delicate aromatic spices and coconut aromas.

Each mouthful reveals dried fruit cloaked in a wisp of smoke.
