A Symphony Of Craftsmanship The New Callum 003 By Annandale

Warwick, UK, 17 May 2024: In celebration of World Whisky Day on 18 May 2024, CALLUM and Annandale Distillery proudly announce the release of their second collaborative whisky – the ‘CALLUM 003 by Annandale.’ This single cask, single malt, peated Scotch whisky is bottled at cask strength and exemplifies the exquisite craftsmanship of both the distillery and design team. This release marks the second in a planned series of six collectable single cask whiskies.

“After the tremendous reception of our sold-out CALLUM 529 by Annandale whisky, continuing this collaborative journey with Annandale Distillery was a natural choice,” said Ian Callum, design director at CALLUM. “CALLUM 003 by Annandale is the next chapter in our series of six exceptional and collectable whiskies. Each bottle offers a distinct sensory experience – visually, tactilely, and on the palate.”

Annandale Distillery, one of Scotland’s oldest, underwent a renaissance in 2014, with cask 003 among the first to be filled. Aged to perfection in a fresh bourbon cask since January 2015, this whisky boasts an exquisite and unique flavour profile, meticulously selected by both CALLUM and Annandale for its outstanding character.

Visually, CALLUM 003 by Annandale displays a pale, straw-like golden hue. The nose reveals rich aromas of steeped dried fruits, toffee, black treacle, and salted caramel, balanced by medicinal smoky notes. On the palate, layers of sweetness and nuttiness unfold, leading to hints of cooked apple and golden syrup, with a back note of sweet tobacco that lingers elegantly.

Encased in a bespoke ceramic bottle designed by CALLUM, this whisky features the same striking design as its predecessor, CALLUM 529, with all 240 bottles now sold out. The vessel’s form is dramatically sliced in half, one part showcasing sweeping organic ripples contrasting against the silky-smooth, structured texture of the other half. The second edition bottle is finished in an immaculate ‘Pearl White’ glaze, while the vibrant presentation case is a joyful ‘Sunrise’ yellow, accented by CALLUM’s signature ‘Vitamin C’ orange.

“The ceramic bottle’s stunning finish distinguishes it within typically glass-filled drinks cabinets,” adds Callum. “The vibrant, colorful boxes are curated to create a piece of artwork in any distinguished drinks collection. Both design enthusiasts and whisky aficionados will appreciate the complex and enjoyable flavour profile of this unique whisky.”
