The First Editions Authors’ Series
First launched by independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co. in 2015, the First Editions Authors’ Series celebrates the life and works of great writers with equally laudable single cask whiskies. With such literary giants as Dickens, Edgar Allen Poe and Robert Louis Stevenson honoured in previous releases, the latest highly limited bottlings pay tribute to French and British writers of the 19th century.
