Bowmore Arc-52: The Mokume Edition

London | 26 May 2023

Bowmore Arc-52: The Mokume Edition is 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.

Bowmore Arc-52: The Mokume Edition is the latest partnership between Sotheby’s and Bowmore Distillery and will be offered on 26 May at Sotheby’s in London.
