Gleann Mòr release limited edition Hibs whisky

Gleann Mòr Spirits Company has kicked off the next stage of its new partnership with Hibernian Football Club with the release of an exclusive fans-only whisky.

The Edinburgh-based firm has launched a special limited-edition issue of its Whisky Row Smooth & Sweet blended malt, available in 350 individually numbered bottles.

The sweet and fruity dram, which is a marriage of Highland and Speyside single malts, comes in a premium presentation box and will be offered to supporters of the Easter Road team as a unique keepsake.

It’s the first of several special Hibs bottlings to be launched by Gleann Mòr, who recently netted a multi-year sponsorship deal to become the Scottish Premiership side’s official spirits partner.

Gleann Mòr Spirits Manager Greg Urquhart said: “We are extremely proud to offer this first special edition Whisky Row as part of our exciting new relationship with Hibs.

“The whisky has been specially chosen for fans to enjoy, and the unique presentation box will make it a unique souvenir that we know supporters everywhere will cherish.”

The release coincides with the launch of Hibs’ new home kit for 2022/23, with the bespoke label taking inspiration from the new strip design, which features Whisky Row emblazoned on the back of the team’s famous green and white shirt.

Mr Urquhart added: “We are particularly excited to see our name on the Hibs shirt for the first time, and look forward to working closely with the club to deliver more product launches in the coming months.”

The fans-only dram is the first in a series of unique Gleann Mòr releases that will be announced during the upcoming season.

As well as Whisky Row, the partnership will see bespoke single cask editions issued under the firm’s Rare Find label, hand-picked from the finest distilleries across Scotland.

Gleann Mòr’s Leith Spirits range will also be served to guests enjoying hospitality at Easter Road, which is undergoing extensive refurbishment ahead of the new season.
