An extensive array of extremely old and rare scotches and fine whiskies from around the globe hit the shelves of B.C. Liquor Stores Saturday, Nov. 7.

Kamloops Columbia Place Signature store is one of the outlets stocking the release.

The Premium Spirit Release – widely considered the biggest event of the year for spirit aficionados and collectors – includes highly sought-after bourbons from Kentucky, and whiskies from Ireland, Wales and Canada. It also features some remarkable and traditionally hard-to-find Japanese whiskies and an exquisite cognac from Camus.

While the release will appeal to a broad range of spirit enthusiasts with many high-quality products in the $50-to-$100 range, this year’s showstopper is a bottle of unique Glenfiddich 50-year-old single malt with a price tag of $36,000. This ultra-rare Highland Scotch has been called the “crowning glory” in the Glenfiddich collection and is encapsulated in a hand-blown bottle and individually numbered in wax.

“With sought-after bottles in every price range and style, this year’s selections give everyone – from whisky enthusiasts to avid collectors – the chance to explore the world of fine spirits,” said Adele Shaw, B.C. Liquor Stores category manager for spirits.
