Launched earlier this year exclusively to Porter Airlines, in-flight teams will once again offer the 12-year-old spirit, steeped in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, during its complimentary food and beverage service.

Aberlour 12, crafted using a unique, age-old process that sees the single malt matured in two separate types of casks before marrying together when bottled, has won more than two dozen awards.

"Aberlour is a craft single malt scotch that champions discovering new experiences and knowledge," said Bryan Lin, Brand Manager, Imported Whiskies, at Corby Spirit and Wine. "We're excited to continue our partnership with Porter Airlines to reward curious, culture-seeking travelers as they journey to their next destination."  

"We are pleased to re-introduce Aberlour Scotch Whisky as a short-term addition to our range of complimentary in-flight beverages," said Kevin Jackson, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Porter Airlines. "This is just one of the ways we aim to surprise and delight our passengers, further enhancing their refined flying experience."  

In addition to the in-flight service, Aberlour will be taking over the Mainland Terminal and Island Atrium at Billy Bishop Airport with digital displays, elevator wraps, and an on-site activation. Those who come across the sampling site will be able to enjoy a complimentary tasting of Aberlour 12 Years Old and Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Redbreast 12 Years Old.
