Bowmore in partnership with British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin has unveiled a new whisky expression, Black Bowmore DB5 1964.

With 49.6% alcohol by volume (ABV), Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is a 31-year-old whisky expression aged in a walnut brown oloroso Sherry butt.

The company explained that its new variant offers flavours of mango and passion fruit, as well as acacia honey combined with coffee and tobacco smoke.

The name Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is significant for both the companies.

Bowmore distillery manager David Turner said: “1964 represents a significant date in the modern history of the distillery. Not only a key moment in how we distilled our spirit, but perhaps even more significant as this very spirit went onto create Black Bowmore.

“These defining moments are fundamental to the history of Bowmore. This collaboration with Aston Martin has allowed us to once again showcase this iconic single malt in the most incredible way.”

With only 25 bottles for sale, Black Bowmore DB5 1964 comes in a handmade presentation box, featuring a custom solid brass latch and hinges, plated with nickel, reflective of the DB5.

From late Autumn, Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is available for purchase for £50,000 per bottle.

Last November, Aston Martin Lagonda partnered with Scotland’s distillery Bowmore, owned by Beam Suntory, for creating an exclusive series of whiskies.
