A MODERN Scottish distillery has created a limited-edition whisky to mark British Airway’s centenary year.

Airline representatives visited the InchDairnie distillery to launch the 12-year process ahead of World Whisky Day, which takes place tomorrow.

The Fife-based distillery’s whisky will be decanted into 300 bottles that will be served exclusively on British Airways flights in 2031.

Ian Palmer, managing director of InchDairnie – who has been distilling for 40 years – said: “We’re delighted we’ve been able to create a very special whisky for British Airways in their very special year.

“Although we are a new distillery who have a much younger heritage than British Airways, through the use of industry leading technology we are bringing together decades of industry experience and knowledge, enabling us to fine tune one of the most meticulously designed distillation processes in the world.”
