Introducing Big Peat “The RAF Edition ”
A limited edition bottling of Douglas Laing's Big Peat Vatted Malt, made exclusively with malt whiskies from the Isle of Islay.
“The RAF Edition” in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund which was founded in 1919. This year the Fund celebrates 100 years of providing financial, practical and emotional support to serving and former members of the RAF and their families.
The RAF Benevolent Fund has long been a cause close to the hearts of the Douglas Laing family, as the founder of the independently-run firm, Fred Douglas Laing, flew with the RAF throughout World War Two. The business is today spearheaded by second and third-generation duo, Fred Jr and Cara Laing, who have committed to donating £5 per bottle to the charity.
Fred Laing, Chairman at his family firm, comments:
“My father’s service in the RAF will long be a source of great pride for our family, and our unwavering desire is to honour his legacy, both in our charitable efforts and our commitment to building the Scotch Whisky business he founded.
The Big Peat RAF Edition is individually numbered, bottled at 46% alcohol strength and offered without colouring or chill filtration.
Only 1919 bottles available.
It’s “chocks away Ginger” as we rev up for a sweetly peated, beachy, maritime nose - through to a palate taking off with chimney soot, damp ash and pelagic style and soaring high to a finish which is smoked, coal dusted and tarry.
