A truly pioneering spirit lies at the heart of this special partnership bottling as we bring together the best in dance and the best in whisky to celebrate our shared passion for creating the exceptional. SCOTTISH BALLET 50 reflects our dedication to our respective crafts and our shared commitment to giving back to Scotland’s communities.
Inspired by the passion of Scottish Ballet and the drama of their exciting repertoire, our Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, has created a whisky with a lively flavour profile and a rich and intense character. Bottled at 40% ABV, SCOTTISH BALLET 50 bears all the hallmarks of a classic Highland Park and features sweet notes of caramelised pineapple, golden syrup and Madeira cake which dance joyfully on the palate, accompanied by spicy hints of aniseed and toasted oak, and orchestrated on a wave of light aromatic peat smoke.
We’ve released 5,000 bottles of SCOTTISH BALLET 50 and will make a donation to Scottish Ballet for every bottle sold to support the delivery of their extensive outreach programme, engaging diverse communities across Scotland, from Kirkwall to Kilmarnock and beyond.
We embrace our 50th anniversary with an unprecedented programme of new work, affirming our commitment to be one of the most daring dance companies in the world.
