Bottling Scotch with Waters of Greenland
Age old pure glacial water from icebergs in Greenland has been used to produce fine Scotch whisky in Islay’s Bruichladdich Distillery. Celebrated polar explorer, Craig Mathieson, the only person to have skied across both the North Pole, and the South Pole collected the pristine frosty blue water while kayaking on the Sermilik Fjord in Greenland.
Whisky Auctioneer is selling the first ten bottles of the luxury Scotch at a starting price of £100 each. An additional 190 bottles will be auctioned, the proceeds from which shall go to The Polar Academy.
The Academy is a Scottish charity known for their endeavor in helping youngsters plagued with mental health disorders. The Academy organizes Arctic expeditions for the youth community. The organization has successfully brought a change in the lives of 50,000 young Scots so far. However, the endeavour seems self-contradictory: bottling Arctic water in whisky to unlock the potentials of the young Scotts through their expeditions of the Arctic.
The limited edition Port Charlotte whisky has been aged for 12 years, has a bright copper color. The nose reveals a smell of burnt marshmallow, charcoal barbecue smoke speckled with saltiness of the sea, and sootiness. It has a smooth finish, with subtle flavours of ripe apples, and pears running through. The Scotch strikes a fine balance between smokiness, and sweetness.
