Concept 8 is an exciting whisky brand with a unique theme – 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky specifically designed for the Asian market, celebrating the prosperity and fortune of lucky number 8.
The number 8 is auspicious in many Eastern Asian countries and throughout the world. In Chinese culture, 8 is considered to be the luckiest number, as it resembles ‘wealth’, 'prosperity' or ‘good fortune'. Multiples of 8 are even more desirable, as 88 resembles 'double happiness'. Many Asians believe the more 8's, the better, and we often find deals with number 8 very popular in Asia.
To cater to this unique appetite, Global Whisky has created Concept 8, a celebration of Asia’s centuries-old tradition of wealth, fortune and prosperity through our premium, yet affordable selection of 8-Year-Old aged scotch whisky.
The ‘concept’ is, each premium batch of limited edition whisky is selected from 8 Scottish distilleries, using 8 casks of whisky from each distillery, all aged and matured for 8 years in Scotland, jointly creating an 8x8x8 connection.
Our batches will consist of three regions of the Scottish whisky map:
Highland: this region has a huge diversity of flavours and characters from lighter whiskies all the way through salty coastal malts, the Highlands offers a Scotch for all palates.
Speyside: probably the most popular whisky region in Scotland and popular for fruity notes as well as honey, vanilla and spice.
Islay / Smoked: is a wonderful whisky producing island off the west coast of Scotland and is renowned for smoked and heavily peated whiskies.
This is a Single Malt Scotch Whisky at a very affordable price. The benefit is that Concept8 is an aged statement scotch whisky and gives full clarity to the drinker of what they are drinking.
The strength of the whisky is bottled at 40.8% Alcohol by Volume in a 70cl bottle.
