"It is infused with notes of apple, fresh pear, golden honey and hazelnut from the art of blending, presenting a smoother texture suited to Koreans’ tastes," the company said. Neon joins the existing range - IP12, 17, 19, Quantum and 21. The packaging features a metallic light blue label, reminiscent of a neon sign. Jean Manuel Spriet, CEO of Pernod Ricard Korea, said: “The new product will help consumers enjoy Scotch whisky in more comfortable and casual settings and its dynamic brand name and design will vitalize the market.” Imperial Neon does not feature an age statement.
Imperial has had something of a stop-start history. It was founded in the town of Carron in central Speyside in 1897 by Thomas Mackenzie, who also had a share in both Talisker and Dailuaine (Carron's other distillery). Imperial was initally built as a second distillery for Dailuaine, and the name 'Imperial' was to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, which occurred the same year.

It’s sold in over 55 countries around the world. Using crystal clear Canadian water, plus the finest rye, grains, and corn, the whisky is painstakingly distilled, blended at birth, and put up in premium oak barrels to gently mature.
