Last night in London kilts and headdresses collided as two very distinct worlds united. Itís hard to imagine there has ever been a more amusingly incongruous marriage than Scotland and Brazil. Certainly the marketing minds behind†Ballantineís Brasil†have been having fun with the idea. The launch's accompanying cocktail creations include the Highland Samba and the Glen Coco.
The single malt Speyside whisky which uses barrels that have contained three Caribbean rums, has been available in the US market for 12 months and will complement the Balvenie 14 Year Old Golden Cask expression which is a travel retail exclusive.
The Caribbean expression is 43% alcohol by volume and is expected to retail for approximately £42.
