19 June 2020

Secret Speyside brings to you the ultimate Father’s Day Gift with an array of handcrafted and premium whiskeys to toast your father on this special day.

In every bottle in Secret Speyside’s coveted collection lies a unique blend of a time, place, age and the best processes that have been employed to create the finest whiskey. A fan favourite, connoisseurs delight and aficionados treat, indulge in the rich chests of the Speyside region in Scotland to present the ultimate gift on this day for your father.

Lifestyle Insider Caperdonich Peated 25 Year Old

A carefully curated selection of 18-30 year old whiskies that herald from four of Speyside’s most elusive distilleries, including the vanished distillery of Caperdonich (it was taken down in 2011), the pioneering Longmorn distillery (by a pioneer of the industrial revolution who brought the railway to the distillery), the landmark Glen Keith distillery, and the remote Braes of Glenlivet distillery (now known as Braeval).

The 15-strong collection consists of three rare Single Malts from each of Glen Keith, Longmorn Distillery and Braes of Glenlivet, together with three peated and three unpeated expressions from Caperdonich, which distilled its final Single Malt in 2002, before closing its doors in 2011.

Lifestyle Insider Braes 30 Year Old

“With centuries of rich whisky heritage against a jaw-dropping Scottish landscape, Speyside is the treasure chest of Scotch and brimming with untold stories,” says Alan Winchester, a Chivas Brothers Scotch whisky icon and Master Distiller with over 30 years of Speyside distilling experience. “Curating the Collection has been a labour of love for the Chivas Brothers team; its contents have been hand-selected to help shine a light on some seldom-seen distilleries, their rare malts, and unique histories. This world-class selection, demonstrates the breadth of flavour and character that Speyside distilleries can achieve.”

This Father’s Day, let your dad uncover, sample and collect some of the hidden malts at the heart of the iconic Speyside region that have rarely been made available in the past – the opulent 30-year-old Braes, and the unpeated offering from Caperdonich, a distillery that no longer exists – is like a whiff unto a glorious past.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
