09 Aug 2020 | International News : U.K.



Bowmore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Aston Martin have unveiled their first collaborative creation - the Black Bowmore DB5 1964.

A striking concept which brings together an iconic whisky and a legendary car in a bottle of equal parts, featuring exceptional single malt and a genuine Aston Martin DB5 piston.

The box is created from the finest string-grain calfskin, featuring a custom solid brass latch and hinges plated with nickel
With only 25 bottles for sale, this exceptionally rare Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is a celebration of time - a definitive moment in history for both Bowmore and Aston Martin. It is also a celebration of shared values and passions, showcasing great innovation and invention.

A beautifully inspiring masterpiece, this unique, handcrafted vessel houses an equally exceptional single malt, Black Bowmore - inspired by the past, but truly breath-taking in today's world. The significance of 1964 is paramount. This represents a truly defining era of evolution for both Bowmore and Aston Martin.

First distilled on 5 November 1964, over the years Black Bowmore has become one of the rarest and most sought-after single malt whiskies ever created. This latest release represents only the sixth bottling of this exquisite single malt. Since 1993, only around six thousand bottles of Black Bowmore have been made available, thus adding to the desirability of this iconic whisky.

For Aston Martin, this was the era of their most iconic car. Launched in 1963 to considerable acclaim, the Aston Martin DB5 is now widely regarded as 'the most famous car in the world', not least by virtue of its links to the world's most celebrated secret agent in 1964.

Each bottle took up to one week to be complete, reflecting the continued thread of attention to detail and skill that defines this collaboration
In keeping with a commitment to true craftsmanship, the Black Bowmore DB5 bottle itself is handcrafted by Glasstorm, a bespoke contemporary glass studio with over 50 years of glass design, sculpting and creative expertise, based in North East Scotland.

The Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is presented in a handmade presentation box - itself a work of art. Inspired by the distillery's coastal home, the deep blue colour and wave embossing evoke a true sense of place. 

The partners are set to unveil a series of collaborative projects and products over the coming months and years, ranging from exceptional experiences to design-led product initiatives with the goal of offering fans of the brands, across a broad spectrum, the opportunities to connect with the partnership.

As world class luxury brands, Bowmore and Aston Martin urge consumers never to drink and drive. Drink Smart messaging will be integrated into all brand activations around the partnership, while the dedicated Drink Smart platform ensures communication with legal-purchase age adults about making informed, responsible choices.
