Tomatin, the award-winning Highland single malt, has announced the launch of the final edition from the distillery’s French Collection: The Cognac Edition. Taken from the four-part limited release series, the Cognac Edition demonstrates the unique influence imparted by the world-renowned Cognac casks, and has been 12 years in the making.

Distilled in 2008, the whisky began its maturation in traditional Scotch whisky oak casks before being moved into Cognac casks for the final stage of the process in November 2018.

To celebrate the final launch of The French Collection, and to complement the liquid on the lip’s moment alongside the Cognac Edition, the final part of an immersive four-part content series has been released on the Tomatin website.

The content will be unveiled in conjunction with product availability, and has been designed for consumers to pair with their purchase, allowing the drinker to lose themselves in the world, and story, of the final edition that makes up the Tomatin French Collection.

Graham Eunson, master distiller at Tomatin, said: “The fourth and final release from Tomatin’s French Collection is the jewel in the crown. The Cognac Edition, along with the rest of the collection, showcases our innovative dedication to craft and excellence, and is the perfect illustration of the art of comparative final maturation; a concept championed by Tomatin in the Cuatro series released in 2014, which was also very well received.

"We have been overjoyed by the response from the whisky community to the earlier releases, and by introducing the Cognac finish as the final edition, we hope to attract a wider audience to our unique concept allowing them to better understand the art of cask maturation.”

The Cognac Edition is available to purchase now through the Tomatin shop here and other exclusive retailers for £65 RRP. Editions 1-3 already launched to markets in April.
