Bowmore 1965 Intertrade 20 Year Old Cask Strength
A rare vintage Bowmore, distilled 8th February 1965 and bottled in November 1985 for the Italian market by Intertrade.
Intertrade was established in Italy in the early 1980s by Nadi Fiori, the owner of the Taverna degli Artisti bar in Rimini. The company was a collaboration with beer distributors, the Turatello Brothers, and the Intertrade name appears on Fiori's bottlings up to around 1989. Fiori selected his whiskies from the Gordon & MacPhail catalogue, but as a collector himself, and a contemporary of his fellow connoisseur countrymen, Silvano Samaroli and Ernesto Mainardi, he knew the importance striking label designs and requested many of his bottlings at cask strength. Whether under the Intertrade, Turatello or High Spirits banner, Fiori's bottlings are some of the most sought after on the market.
There were two 1965 vintage Bowmore 20 year olds bottled by Intertrade, this cask strength release, and another at 40%. Hand numbered bottle 74.
