Lot Details


Holyrood Distillery Arrival 2019

The first ever bottle of Holyrood Distillery’s inaugural release, bottled at 46.1% abv, which includes a bespoke label and box that is only included in the One of One Auction.

Inspired by Edinburgh's rich brewing and distilling heritage, the inaugural release brings sweet and spice together, while surprising with the smoothness of a young whisky. On the palate, sweet; prominent spice; digestive biscuits followed by that juicy raisin, while finishing with vanilla, and hints of rum.

Drawing on Edinburgh’s rich brewing heritage, the bespoke bottle avoids whisky cliché and leans into something a little more local, putting the already iconic Holyrood hourglass front and centre. The distinctive beer bottle silhouette and brown glass pay tribute to a once-bustling glassworks located at Baileyfield, not too far from the distillery, while the bold typography and unique shape of the label are decidedly forward-looking in their design.
