Following last year’s exceptionally well-received release, a special limited-edition bottling of Lagavulin™ Single Malt Scotch Whisky will be on sale to Festival ticket holders during the 2012 Lagavulin Islay Jazz Festival (14 – 16 September).
The bottling, which like last year’s release carries a jazz motif on its neck label, is an edition of 624 bottles, sourced from a single Refill Sherry Butt (No. 1894) filled on 7th May 1997.
It is bottled at a natural cask strength of 54.5% ABV, and priced at £85 UK RRP.
The main label carries the signature of warehouseman Iain McArthur, who has worked at Port Ellen, Caol Ila and Lagavulin for 42 years.
Any bottles not sold during the Festival will remain on sale, but available only to personal shoppers at the Distillery.

The Islay Jazz Festival
The Festival (www.islayjazzfestival.co.uk ) has been running since 1999. Since then the Festival has promoted musicians from over 25 countries and presented fifteen world premieres and is today regarded as a significant jazz event in the UK calendar.
Diageo’s famous Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky Lagavulin™ first sponsored the Festival in 2010.
