Diageo North America has unveiled the 2023 Distillers Edition in the U.S., an annual release of limited-edition single malt Scotch whiskies that are double-matured in different types of cask wood.

This year’s Distillers Edition collection consists of six releases from Scotch distilleries throughout the Islands, Speyside, the Highlands and the Lowlands: Lagavulin, Talisker, Cragganmore, Oban, Dalwhinnie and Glenkinchie.

Only one batch of each whisky is produced per year. The latest collection features a new label design for each malt which incorporates elements representative of each distillery and its core expressions.

The Distillers Edition has come out annually since 1997. The second maturation of these whiskies takes place in batches, using individually prepared casks that have held a specially selected fortified wine. Each batch takes months to mature.

“We’re proud to introduce the latest Distillers Edition line-up, a collection created to celebrate some of Diageo’s finest Single Malt Scotch Whiskies and their distilleries,” says Hannah Todd, Director of Single Malt Whiskies Portfolio at Diageo. “The collection has a long history dedicated to its aging process and craftsmanship, making it the perfect gift to commemorate special moments with. Whether celebrating a holiday, gifting a loved one, or toasting to a special occasion, the Distillers Edition collection has a liquid for every type of person in your life.”
