Discover a taste for adventure with a Talisker whisky made by the sea


In this film, we meet ocean explorer and film-maker James Aitken, who accepted Talisker’s Atlantic challenge to single-handedly sail 3,264 miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua – while carrying onboard the wooden staves that would become part of 10 special casks made to finish Talisker’s oldest expression to date – the 43 Year Old Xpedition Oak, available from Justerini & Brooks. The casks used to produce this special whisky included the staves that have tasted an Atlantic adventure… and returned to tell the tale.

Watch out for James’s next adventure to host one “wild spirit” and their guest on Talisker’s Ultimate Rewilding Adventure competition, where he will sail the rugged coasts of the Isle of Skye and experience a taste of the Scottish island’s natural beauty in 2022.
