Strengthen Dad’s Spirits Portfolio This Father’s Day

Rare, Handcrafted Scotch Whisky Is a Treasured Gift Dad Will Savor Throughout the Year

Deerfield, Ill. – May 19, 2009 – This Father’s Day, with 401(k) statements still grim and the stock market volatile, make a “liquid” investment in your dad’s happiness with a rare bottling of Ardmore 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. With only 1,428 individually numbered bottles produced exclusively for the U.S. market, Ardmore 30 Year Old is a special gift guaranteed to pay flavorful dividends for dear old dad.

“Your father, like most people, might need an emotional bail-out this year,” said Simon Brooking, Beam Global Scotch ambassador. “Ties or tickets to a ball game might not be enough. Ardmore 30 Year Old is a rare bottling that will improve anyone’s whisky portfolio, as well as lift spirits. It’s simply exquisite.”

Crafted from the only Highland distillery that consistently peats its barley, Ardmore weaves bold, smoky flavor notes historically associated with Islay malts into the rich Highland malt experience. Ardmore 30 Year Old offers a floral nose with light citrus notes and a slightly dry licorice tang at taste and carries a dry, very long-lasting finish. It is priced approximately $449.99 per 750ml bottle (varies per market) and is available where fine spirits are sold.

“Regardless of the state of your portfolio, Ardmore 30 Year Old will add a splash of excitement and complex taste to what has been a relatively dreary year,” said Brooking. “For the serious collector of fine spirits or the simple fan of rare whiskies, it’s a winning investment.”

To round out Dad’s Scotch portfolio, also consider giving Ardmore® Traditional Cask ($45-$50). Ardmore is a luxury spirit for those who appreciate the qualities of extraordinary whisky. For more information, please visit
