A profound lover of Scotland’s national drink, Louise seeks excellence in every drop. Aligning with her nature, the single grain whisky is no ordinary expression. It’s a tribute to time, triumph, and tenacity, blending the aromas of victories past with the taste of future legacies.

The whisky itself, hand-selected by Aitken-Walker and the internationally acclaimed former Master Distiller of The Macallan, David Robertson, resonates with the ethos of endurance, performance, and distinction that dominated her racing days. Vibrant lemon gold in colour and delightfully layered with tantalising notes of tropical fruits, Crème Brule, and lemon zest — it captures not just the palate but the imagination.

In light of her awe-inspiring achievements that vaulted her into the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame, it’s no surprise that the commemorative whisky is as multifaceted as Louise’s own story.

Every bottle carries her touch, with photography from her personal collection, encapsulating milestones, speed-dusted tracks, and the scenic beauty of Scotland — her driving force.

Invergordon Distillery’s masterful production of grain whisky perfectly complements Louise’s farming heritage and racing legacy, encapsulated in the unique flavour profile of this spirit. In an exclusive run, this limited edition, 490 bottles, is as rare as the champion it honours, a true collector’s item for enthusiasts of motorsport and connoisseurs of fine whisky alike.
