Elements of Islay, is Speciality Drinks' new range of Single Islay Malt Whiskies. The Elements range draws its inspiration from traditional medical laboratory labels and packaging – even the bottle used is called ‘pharmacy’.
The Elements range are bottled in individual batches, typically blended from between 5 and 20 casks from a single distillery. Each bottle shows the distillery’s ‘Element’ symbol alongside a batch number on the label (eg Lp1).
Another important feature of the Elements range is the absence of vintages or age statements on the label. This enables SD to marry casks of different ages together to create a unique taste profile for each batch – they believe that stated ages and vintages are less important than creating a top quality malt that truly expresses the character of the distillery that made it.
