Wine and spirits merchant Berry Bros & Rudd has announced the release of a new single malt whisky range curated by its brands heritage director Ronnie Cox.

A total of seven casks have been selected for the Ronnie’s Reserve range – six of which are available now and the seventh is to be released in June this year.

The casks span four decades, with two bottlings from the 1960s, two from the 1970s, one from the 1980s and two from the 1990s.

The collection includes:

• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Tempus Fugit 1968 Cask No 13497 (51.6% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Curriculum Vitae 1969 Cask No 16202 (46.3% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 1975 Cask No 10619 (45.5% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 1979 Cask No 5454 (49.9% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 1989 Cask No 10415 (54% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 1992 Cask No 4597 (51.7% ABV)
• Ronnie’s Reserve, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 1995 Cask No 12040 (53.2% ABV)

Ronnie said: “Over the 30 years of working with this Speyside distillery I have the enviable task of nosing several hundred casks, and in my view, these seven casks stand alone as examples of supremacy.

“I didn’t need the keys to the distillery, a bung remover and a nosing glass. I had had my eye on these casks for many years and I count myself as incredibly fortunate to be able to select these whiskies to bottle under my name.”

Lizzy Rudd, executive chairman for Berry Bros & Rudd, added: “This Speyside single malt distillery, with which Berry Bros & Rudd and Ronnie has been long associated, has always been a favourite of mine.

“When I was made aware of these truly exceptional casks maturing in the distillery’s warehouse under Ronnie’s watchful eye, it filled me with excitement.

“As perfect as we think they can be, these casks represent the distillery’s true character, showing perfect elegance, poise and maturity. I’m proud and delighted to release them under the name of Ronnie’s Reserve.”
