Berry Bros debuts winter 2022 range

by Alice Brooker

London-based Berry Bros & Rudd has debuted its latest seasonal collection, including a 2014 Chichibu Japanese whisky.

The 2022 winter series includes eight Scotch whiskies, a rare Japanese whisky, a French whisky and a Fijia tropical rum. Doug McIvor, Reserve spirits manager, commented: “Every quarterly release is centred around celebrating the finest quality spirits and producers from around the world and bringing them together in a collection that covers a breadth of flavour profiles and style, giving our customers the opportunity to try new spirits with confidence." The range boasts the Kornog 2006 French whisky and a Japanese Chichibu whisky from 2014. McIvor added: “Looking at the 2022 winter release, we are especially honoured to be granted access to the rare liquid that is Japanese whisky. Given its rising popularity in recent years, we were thrilled to accept a cask from Chichibu, not only for its rarity but outstanding quality.” The Scotch whiskies derive from four regions: Lowlands, Speyside, Highlands and Islay. Finally, the Fiji Rum 2010 is a hybrid of traditional Jamaican style ‘tropical funk’ and agricole-like synthetic fruit, creating an ‘intense yet moreish’ liquid. Berry Bros & Rudd's 2022 Winter Release collection includes: Blair Athol 2012 (£60/US$72.17), Dailuaine 2009 (£75/US$90.21), Linkwood 2011 Oloroso Finish (£95/US$114.27), Williamson 2013 Moscatel Barrel (£96/US$115.47), Blair Athol 2008 Tokaji Gonchi Finish (£105/US$126.30), Kornog 2006 (£160/US$192.45), Fiji Rum 2010 (£120/US$144.34), Glen Garioch 1988 (£450/US$541.28) and Chichibu 2014 (£475/US$571.35). In September 2022, the brand revealed the second batch of releases in its Nordic Cask whisky range.
