Actor Nick Offerman, best as Ron Swanson from the NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” has continued his long-running collaboration with Lagavulin with a new Scotch whisky release.
Lagavulin Islay Single MaltScotch Whisky Offerman Edition Aged 11 Years is the result of Offerman’s work with Distillery Manager Colin Gordon. Together they built an expression with the trademark Lagavulin peatiness, plus extra spices and notes of dried fruit to carry the smoke, the company reports.
The new Scotch launches this month to retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $74.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
In addition to helping select the liquid, Offerman aided in developing the bottle packaging, which includes his portrait, signature and personal quote:
“I have traveled the world and sampled many attempts at pleasing nectars, but it is solely this distillation of Islay; a tiny, charismatic Scottish isle, that has claimed my palate. Yea, and my heart into the bargain.”
