News Briefs for December 21, 2022December 21, 2022
•The Glenturret has announced Prowess, the newest offering in the Trinity Series in Lalique, a collaboration between the distillery and the French crystal house. The 43.9% abv whisky is blended from two casks—one from 1987 and one from 1988—bottled just this month. Each of the 320 bottles of the 33 year old whisky are packaged in a crystal decanter designed by Marc Larminaux, Lalique’s artistic and creative director. Purchasing information is available directly from The Glenturret.
•New Zealand winery Yealands Wines is launching Lighter Sauvignon Blanc, the newest addition to its list of sustainable wines. Its inaugural 2022 vintage was made using grapes from select parcels of Sauvignon Blanc at the winery’s Awatere and Wairau Valley vineyards. The vines in question are managed to maintain a low sugar level, resulting in low-alcohol wine—in this case 9% abv. It’s available now nationwide for a suggested $16 a bottle, imported by Palm Bay International.
