Supporting the RAF Benevolent Fund – Douglas Laing & Co and Big Peat ‘The RAF Edition’
Douglas Laing & Co, leading family Scotch Whisky business, have produced the superb Big Peat “The RAF Edition” (46% alcohol strength) in aid of the RAF Benevolent Fund.
This unique release shows Big Peat in the original RAF attire, wearing his leather flying helmet, shearling jacket with commemorative pin badge, and a flowing white silk scarf. A Sopwith Camel carries a banner denoting 1919-2019, to celebrate The Fund commemorating 100 years of providing financial, practical and emotional support to serving and former members of the RAF and their families.
It has been created through the passion of supporting the RAF, as the founder of the independently run firm, Fred Douglas Laing, flew with the RAF throughout World War Two.
Fred Laing, Chairman at his family firm, comments:
“My father’s service in the RAF will long be a source of great pride for our family, and our unwavering desire is to honour his legacy, both in our charitable efforts and our commitment to building the Scotch Whisky business he founded.”
1919 bottles have been produced, they are individually numbered and are available for purchase across the UK and selected European and Asian markets with an expected retail price of £48.99, £5 of which will be donated to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
With a unique taste on the palate - taking off with chimney soot, damp ash and pelagic style and soaring high to a finish which is smoked, coal dusted and tarry.
