Based on the comic books of the same name, the Kingsman series first made its screen debut in 2014 with The Secret Service film. Prior to the release of its sequel, The Golden Circle, director Matthew Vaughn and The GlenDronach Distillery partnered to offer a limited edition 1991 vintage inspired by the franchise’s protagonist, a young gentleman spy named ‘Eggsy’. With the announcement of the spin-off flick, The King’s Man, the pair are back at it again.

The inspiration for this collab — a 29-year-old vintage bottled in 1913 and still kept at GlenDronach today — has a unique history. So the story goes, three friends each purchased a bottle prior to leaving for the First World War, intending to open them upon their return. Unfortunately, only one of the trio returned, but his unopened bottle is currently displayed in remembrance of their friendship. The Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage is a fitting homage, matured in Oloroso sherry and filled from six select casks. What results is a complex whiskey featuring aromas of dark fruit, vintage leather, and cedar that finishes with blackberry and tobacco. Each bottle comes with a bespoke Kingsman insignia inside a box bearing Vaughn’s signature. They’ll go on sale on September 1st for $1,299.
