Byron’s poetry captured in a whisky bottle!

WOW! With the excellent choice of a resin domed, mirror effect label and metal neck charm, Speyside have been able to reflect Lord Byron’s vivid, lovely and eye-catching poetry – capturing it in a whisky bottle.

Speyside Distillery Chief Executive Officer John Harvey McDonough believes that Lord Byron – who was known to enjoy a dram – would have approved of the gesture.

John says, “It is a fascinating part of our history and one of which we are incredibly proud. It is understood that when Lord Byron wed at Seaham Hall in Northumberland, a cask of Spey whisky was sent down to Kew Palace in London as a gift for the King. A replica of the cask remains in Seaham Hall, where Spey has a mini museum in the cellar.”

Just 200 cases/1,200 bottles have been produced, making this an exclusive item. Signet have thoroughly enjoyed working with Spey to get the final product to market; supplying both the face label and neck charm.

Spey Lord Byron is 46% ABV, with an RRP of £95
