The new 28yo edition and King Alexander III special pack will be supported by an activation campaign at Hong Kong International Airport.

Whyte & Mackay whisky brand The Dalmore is to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year with a limited-edition 28yo release and special pack for the King Alexander III expression.

The 28yo limited edition is a single malt matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks and Graham’s Tawny Port pipes. Only 1,300 bottles have been created, of which 300 will be made exclusively available in Asian travel retail. The 70cl bottle (51.8%abv) is priced at $1,800. A special edition pack for the King Alexander III edition will also be introduced.

Richard Trimby, Travel Retail Director, Whyte & Mackay said: “Whyte & Mackay is dedicated to ongoing innovation and supporting customers with impactful and exciting special editions which drive penetration, conversion and spend. This is what has made the company such a driving force in this market and sector today.


“Both of these offers have been extremely well received by our retail partners around the world as they look to make the most of the opportunity presented by Chinese New Year to satisfy Asian travellers with the ideal gift to mark the holiday.”
