Following the outstanding success of the first and second Prima & Ultima comes the hugely anticipated third release. This year Master Blender Dr Craig Wilson takes up the baton, following Master of Malts Maureen Robinson, after the inaugural selection was made by celebrated master blender Dr Jim Beveridge OBE.

Among the treasured casks of Scotch Whisky made and stored every year there is a small cohort that will rise to become remarkable

The last Talisker casks from 1984 bring another maritime note to the collection, while two exploratory whiskies capture the spirit of innovation; a Royal Lochnagar from 1981, the result of an experiment to capture the angels’ share, and a Mannochmore from 1990, a whisky exposed to an unusual maturation process.


The oldest whisky in this year’s selection comes from the oldest casks of Cragganmore in the reserves, while a 28 year old Lagavulin 1993 celebrates the beginning of a golden era of awards for the celebrated Islay distillery.

The Singleton of Glen Ord finishes the line up with a dual claim to the Prima & Ultima title, being the first ever 1987 vintage release, taken from the last remaining casks of 1987.

Every whisky in this collection tells a story, capturing an essence of a time and era in liquid form, holding those moments in suspension until they are released out of darkness, bottled and brought to light.

Every set of Prima & Ultima includes the eight single vintage bottlings and is accompanied by 20ml tasting samples of each whisky and a booklet of Craig’s personal reflections.
