To celebrate the exclusive Korean market launch of Ballantine’s 30yo Cask Edition, Pernod Ricard has teamed up with The Shilla Duty Free and Lotte Duty Free at Incheon International Airport to deliver a preview of this rare whisky.

Between August and October, an interactive display of scent-filled copper cloches will enable travellers to discover the individual characteristics of the ultra-premium blended whisky. Expect to find rich aromas of poached pears, heather honey and creamy vanilla from Ballantine’s latest edition, crafted by Master Blender Sandy Hyslop.

Making a statement: The 30yo blend is exclusive to South Korean duty free

If you require further convincing, VIP tasting sessions can be booked by pre-registering at b30caskedition.com.

Each bottle has been labelled with a batch and bottle number and comes in a dark wood presentation box, embossed with copper detail. Shoppers at the South Korean gateway can also personalise a complimentary luggage tag, phone case or card holder when purchasing a bottle.
