Rangers fans have sold out the second special edition bottle of Rangers whisky as club supporters and whisky collectors rush to complete the collection.
The Ibrox side announced plans to sell three limited-edition bottles of whisky in association with whisky purveyors Douglas Laing.
The first release – 360 bottles of a 46% ABV single cask single malt – sold out within hours of going on sale with fans eager to get their hands on a bottle.
Now, the same has happened with the second release as the club’s supporters splash the cash on this exciting whisky partnership.
The second limited edition bottle is a 30-year-old single grain whisky from the Port Dundas Distillery with 46% strength ABV [Douglas Laing].
The tasting notes include “milk chocolate developing to vanilla, pineapple in syrup and cereal with candied ginger” with only 230 of the bottles produced.
This bottle’s scarcity and fact it’s 30 years old mean that the whisky fetched a fine price of £130 a bottle with fans rushing to snap up these special Rangers whisky runs.
Rangers marketing director James Bisgrove has previously confirmed that there will be three limited-edition releases in the run-up to Christmas.
“Rangers are very proud to be launching an officially licensed scotch whisky series with Douglas Laing – together we have created a trio of exceptional, limited edition whiskies that are set to be enjoyed by fans all around the world,” said Bisgrove.
“The Single Cask Single Malt whisky range marks the first of many launches with Douglas Laing and we look forward to releasing further special edition products in the future.”
Douglas Laing CEO Chris Leggat confirmed that all three whiskies had been selected “after much deliberation” and said they would “form part of a sensational collectors set for Rangers fans and Whisky enthusiasts alike.”
