British alcoholic beverage producer Diageo’s unit Diageo Korea has reportedly extended its offering portfolio with the launch of two new low Scotch whisky variants, W 19 and W Honey.

The Korean Times reported that the two variants contain only 32.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).

Master blender Craig Wallace created the two Scotch expressions for consumers who look for new tastes and smooth alcoholic drinks.

To offer a rich aroma and complex taste, the company added Scottish heather honey to W Honey.

The W 19 Scotch variant has been aged for 19 years offering a deep flavour specific to old-aged whisky.

With the addition of the new expressions, Diageo Korea’s lineup features expressions with various ABVs and flavours.

Currently, the company offers four variants with 40% ABV Scotch whisky Windsor and W Ice, W Signature 12 and 17 and two new expressions W Honey and W 19 under 35% ABV category.

Diageo Korea CEO Robert Rhee was quoted by Korea Herald as saying: “W 19 and W Honey maximise the value of spirit drinks with lower alcohol content.

“They are premium spirit drinks that offer smoothness, which the low ABV of 32.5% can offer, as well as rich flavours that are crafted by blending the best liquids.”

Packaged in a 450ml bottle, W 19 can be purchased for an ex-factory price of KRW34,850 ($28.93) before value-added tax (VAT) and W Honey for KRW17,200 ($14.28) before VAT.

Last August, Diageo Korea reportedly announced plans to close its Korean whisky manufacturing facility amid low sales and challenging market conditions.
