THE ACTION-SPY FILM franchise Kingsman is all about the best of traditional British practices, and this would of course include Scotch whisky. GlenDronach has once again stepped up to provide it, in the form of a limited-edition release aged nearly 30 years. Revealed late 2020, it celebrates the third film of the series, The King’s Man, a prequel set during World War I. Originally set for release in early 2021, its debut was instead pushed to 22 December after several pandemic-induced delays.

GlenDronach came to be involved with this big-budget Hollywood production somewhat by chance. A major setting for the second film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017), was an American bourbon distillery. For this, the producers worked with drinks conglomerate Brown-Forman, which owns Jack Daniels and Old Forester, among other labels. As it happened, that same year, Brown-Forman acquired a trio of Scottish distilleries, GlenDronach among them. As it also happened, Kingsman director, writer and producer Matthew Vaughn is a big fan of GlenDronach. The Kingsman Edition 1991 Vintage was thus released as a tie-in with The Golden Circle.
