This unique liquid from the home of the legendary No.1 Vaults, the oldest maturation warehouse in the world, has spent 20 years maturing in a single sherry cask, developing deep layers of flavour. Bowmore ® 1997 offers a rich nose with notes of malty biscuit, dried flowers and a hint of white pepper alongside buttery toffee, freshly roasted coffee and vanilla sponge cake.
On the palate, flavours develop into sweet peat with burnt wood and light barbecue ash notes alongside lemon zest. Gentle vanilla and dried wood complement the peated malt character, with a sweet and smoky finish and lingering herbal and floral notes. Just 198 numbered bottles of Bowmore 1997 will be available to global travellers exclusively from Heathrow T2, T3, T4 & T5 in World Duty Free’s “World of Whiskies” stores, at an RRP of £295.
The expression will be launched on 7 December, when Bowmore® Distillery Manager, David Turner, will be in the World of Whiskies stores in Heathrow T2 and T5 to sign bottles of this limited release. Along with overseeing the day-to-day running of the distillery, David acts as guardian of the precious whiskies that lay maturing in the legendary No.1 Vaults. Using a portfolio of skills developed over his 25-year career at Bowmore®, David carefully hand-selects casks for maturation, keeping a watchful eye on the ageing spirits to determine exactly the right time to bottle the liquid gold inside.
Speaking about the expression, Ed Stening, Global Marketing Director of Beam Suntory Global Travel Retail, says: “Bowmore is a Single Malt with an incredibly rich history rooted in our legendary No.1 Vaults, which has shaped the distinctive character of whiskies made here for over 200 years.
As a brand, Bowmore is growing fast in Travel Retail and is very popular with travellers looking to take home a slice of this history and character. We are very excited to be working with Dufry, a long-term supporter of Bowmore, to offer this unique and brilliant single cask expression to their discerning,passionate customers.”
Matthew Scott-Fairweather, Liquor Product and Promotions Manager UK and Central Europe of Dufry adds: “We’re thrilled to be working with Beam Suntory to offer this exceptional whisky from Bowmore exclusively to our customers. We are confident that this will become an instant collector’s edition.”

AN UNRIVALLED SERIES
Bowmore®’s unparalleled range of award-winning single malts is renowned for four key flavour characteristics
found in every bottle. From the salty sea spray of the Atlantic Ocean that pounds the distillery’s ancient coastal
wall, to the gentle peat smoke synonymous with this famous Islay malt, Bowmore® will proudly showcase its
distinctive qualities with the launch of the Vault Edit1°n series.
UNLOCK HIDDEN DEPTHS
The Vault Edit1°n series takes its name from Bowmore®’s
legendary No.1 Vaults, which was established in 1779. It has been
said that time stands still in the chilling sea-air atmosphere of the
No.1 Vaults and transforms single malt whisky into liquid gold to
create Bowmore®’s perfectly balanced expressions and the
distinctive flavours highlighted by this series: Atlantic sea salt,
peat smoke, sweetness and citrus fruits.
AN OCEAN OF FLAVOUR
Aged in ex-bourbon casks, the first release in this highly
anticipated new series will highlight Bowmore®’s distinctive salty
flavour profile with notes of salted honeycomb and Atlantic sea
spray perfectly balanced with notes of sun-ripened fruits, zingy
spiced cocoa and blood orange. Created using hand selected casks
to create a refined liquid of greater depth, Bowmore® Vault
Edit1°n Atlantic Sea Salt reflects the distinctive climate in the
depths of the No. 1 Vaults. This sublime whisky is awash with
blackberry, sea salt and kumquat offering a lasting finish that
opens out like the vast Atlantic Ocean that the Bowmore® distillery overlooks.
Bowmore® Vault Edit1°n Atlantic Seat Salt will be available at specialist whisky retailers, as part of a fourpart
limited edition series, one of which will be released each year between now and 2019. The next
release in the Vault Edit1°n series will be Vault Edit1°n Peat Smoke.
