A true legend in Scotland's whisky making history, "The Angels' Share" is a term for the measure of a distilled spirit's volume that is lost to evaporation whilst the whisky is maturing in its cask or barrel.

The Angels' Share Whisky Angel is a unique piece of hand blown glass.
Every angel is designed to hold whisky through a secret process, known only to the highly skilled craftsmen who have created it.

Holding 25ml of Ardbeg 17 year old whisky, this design allows the spirit to be captured in molten glass without combusting.

Approximately 70mm in height, the angel is beautifully boxed and comes complete with a delightful story.

The whisky is not for drinking and is completely sealed, so you can keep your favourite dram forever. After all, "it's not your whisky, it's the angels' share".
