A Speyside Legend
Prometheus, Titan of ancient Greek mythology, is remembered today for his greatest deed. When an angered Zeus took fire from man, Prometheus rebelled against the Father of Gods. He captured a flame from the hearth of Mount Olympus and carried it back to man.
Today, the spirit of the fire-bringer and champion of man lives on.
Our story begins in 1988, when one of the Olympians of Speyside created a new genus of single malt: a whisky to marry the rich complexity of the Highlands with the intensity of peat smoke from the Islands.
As with all great malts, time was needed for this new Titan to mature. But while the young whisky lay sleeping, hidden from expectant eyes, the heavens shifted. The whisky’s creator departed and a malt that could be both sophisticated and powerful was
seen, by some, to be a threat.
Protectors of the orphan Titan kept him hidden until, in his third decade, he began to reach the peak of his powers.
A secret plan was agreed. Prometheus would be free, but on two conditions: he would be mortal – destined to live a short, but glorious life – and he could never reveal from whence he came.
So we give you Prometheus. A titanic Speyside with the inner strength of barley malted over peat smoke. A whisky of sublime sophistication and balance, bottled at the peak of its powers. A truly unique Single Malt Scotch Whisky, available in the most limited quantity for just one moment in time.
Appearance: Rich amber with coppery hues.
Nose: A warm and welcoming bouquet with sweet notes of butterscotch, aromatic heather, orange zest and smoky charcoal.
