Bowmore Arc-52 The Mokume Edition 43.5 abv + Exclusive Distillery Experience

A unique decanter specially designed by Aston Martin featuring a one of one 52 year old vintage whisky, never to be repeated.

The concept for this one of one Edition takes its name from the Japanese metalworking technique ‘Mokume-Gane’ which produces a mixed-metal laminate with distinctive layered patterns. The carbon fibre top of the decanter has been created using a unique process which mirrors the mokume texture and mimics a natural aesthetic, much like wood grain or layered natural rock.

The unique whisky is made up from two casks types; European oak sherry seasoned + American oak Hogsheads and is a marriage of 1962 and 1968 vintages, bottled at 43.5% abv.

The winning bidder will also have an opportunity to enjoy an exclusive experience at Bowmore Distillery and on Islay, experiencing the limited-edition Aston Martin DBX Bowmore Edition, the brand’s first luxury SUV. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to a long-term, dedicated fund to support the people of Islay across a range of vital initiatives with the key goal of supporting and futureproof Islay’s distilling industry for tomorrow by investing in today.
