Windsor Black aims at ‘gold misters’
Windsor Black is a 17-year-old Scotch whiskey that reflects the sentiments of the gold mister group, single men in their 30s who pursue sophisticated style and individuality, according to Diagio Korea.
The trend of enjoying whiskey with friends rather than business partners has been a driver for new growth in the liquor market.
Windsor Black is aged inside of new oak casks to add fruit flavors for softness to the Scotch, rather than in commonly reused oak casks.
Well-known master blender Douglas Murray blended the undiluted liquid certified by the royal family at the Royal Lochnagar distillery.
The retail price of Windsor Black is 40,337 won ($37.19) for 450 milliliters (15 ounces).
“We introduced Windsor Black to strengthen the position of Windsor, the No. 1 Scotch whiskey in the market, in line with the constantly changing demands?of the market, requiring new products tailored to new customers,” said a spokesman for Diageo Korea. “We expect that Windsor Black, which is differentiated concept from existing whiskey products, will lead the new trend and boost the depressed whiskey market.”
