The Elements of Islay is a range of Single Malt Islay Whiskies that draws its inspiration from traditional medical laboratory labels and packaging. Indeed; even the bottle is called ‘pharmacy’.
The Elements range is bottled in individual batches, typically blended from between 5 and 20 casks from a single distillery. Each bottle shows the distillery’s ‘Element’ symbol alongside a batch number on the label (eg Lp1).
Another important feature of the Elements range is the absence of vintages or age statements on the label. Casks of different ages are “married” to create a unique taste profile for each batch – the producer believes that stated ages and vintages are less important than creating a top quality malt that truly expresses the character of the distillery that made it.
