John Crabbie Whisky returns to the Scotch whisky market with a pair of special limited releases – Crabbie 8 Year Old and Crabbie 30 Year Old – marking the first Crabbie single malt whiskies on the market since the 1970s.

Crabbie Whisky was established near Edinburgh in 1801 by John Crabbie – who went on to become one of the driving forces behind blended whiskies and techniques – as well as creating a ginger beer empire.

The Crabbie 30 Year Old is a Speyside single malt bottled at 48.6% alcohol by volume [97.2 proof] with notes of almonds and spice while the Crabbie 8 Year Old is a Highland single malt bottled at 46% alcohol by volume [92 proof] and said to contain notes of apple.

The Crabbie 8 Year Old is a single cask release of 336 bottles and will be available for $42 per bottle while the Crabbie 30 Year Old will be priced at $700 per bottle – both will be available beginning in February 2018.
