In the year the World’s First Human Be-In happening, considered the beginning of the hippie movement, took place in San Francisco, the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Jimi Hendrix released Are You Experienced, within the walls of Tomatin a special distillate was created. The situation would have been perfectly normal if the fate of the distillate was not different from the destiny of its brothers: it did not end up in a bottle standing on a store shelf. Instead, it matured for 50 years which, together with the contact with the Spanish sherry saturated oak wood, resulted in its unique profile.
It is one of the last 1960s casks stored within the walls of the Tomatin distillery. Now, this liquor is going to be available to whisky enthusiasts, who will have an opportunity to enjoy its rich and unique profile. It is definitely full of spirit of the colourful 1960s and brings back the sounds of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix’s music.
