London venue Park Row has launched its first Scotch whisky, Inishtree Speyside Single Malt, which was inspired by the story of Batman. The whisky takes its name from the fictional town of Inishtree, which, in the world of the Batman comics, is the ancestral home of the superhero’s alter ego Bruce Wayne.
Inishtree Speyside Single Malt comes from Imperial distillery, which shuttered in 2013. The whisky was placed in a single refill bourbon barrel in 1993, and was bottled in 2019 by Speciality Drinks.
On the nose, the Scotch offers notes of sugared almonds, biscuits, lemon curd and meadow flowers. The palate delivers candy bracelets, sweet cream, buttermints and lemon zest.
Just 145 bottles of the 25-year-old limited edition expression have been made available, and are priced at £495 ($665 USD) each.
The immersive Park Row venue opened in Central London in August, featuring a variety of bars and restaurants themed around the characters of the DC comic book universe, including a whisky bar called Pennyworth’s. The venue is a partnership between hospitality group Wonderland Restaurants, Warner Bros Themed Entertainment, and DC Comics.
