Fall into autumn with The Famous Grouse Toasted Oak
Discover the warm and spicy taste of autumn exclusively at duty free
We love summer, of course we do, and we love jetting off to beautiful beaches and soaring temperatures. But it’s also true that we love autumn a little more. Whether we’re holed-up at home, enjoying the darker evenings and colder temperatures, or we’re flying somewhere cold and snowy, there is nothing better than curling up indoors in the warmth while the temperature outside plummets. More importantly, there’s only one drink we want while we’re there: Scotch Whisky. Famous Grouse Scotch Whisky is the perfect partner to log fires, thick socks and a box set.
Famous Grouse Toasted Oak
The legendary whisky maker has now launched a delicious collection of everyday premium tipples, which they’re calling the Cask Series. Whisky fans, prepare yourself. Each whisky within the collection is entirely unique, with its flavour dependant on the oak cask it has been allowed to age in.
Coming exclusively to duty free, Famous Grouse Toasted Oak is a worthy addition to any whisky collection. The Famously Smooth Blend has been allowed to mature in toasted virgin oak casks to accent its classic taste with a hint of sweet and creamy vanilla. Its smooth and spicy flavour makes for the ultimate autumnal spirit. The next time you find yourself in duty free, why not treat yourself to a bottle? Better yet, you can reserve a bottle before you’ve even left home.
