Scottish motoring and whisky excellence unite for Aitken-Walker bottling

Rally driver Louise Aitken-Walker MBE, the first woman to win the FIA Ladies World Rally Championship, has partnered with whisky virtuoso David Robertson to release a 33-year-old Invergordon Single Grain Whisky to mark the 33rd anniversary of her victory.

Aitken-Walker’s competitive driving career not only broke boundaries but also inspired many to follow in her foosteps, and the whisky released bearing her name is intended to be ‘as exceptional as her rally achievements’.

Limited to 490 bottles, the 33 years matured drop has what is described as ‘an elegant taste profile featuring tropical fruits, Crème Brule, and citrus zest’ and each dram is akin to ‘savouring history’.

Each numbered bottle of this limited edition run comes with a special-edition packaging featuring personal photographs from Aitken-Walker’s racing days and glimpses of her Scottish homeland.

‘Mastery of grain whisky’ is claimed to be the hallmark of Invergordon Distillery, which was established in 1961 and ‘celebrated for its innovative distilling techniques that yield an enchantingly smooth spirit’.
