Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980 and their famous Birds, Animals, Costumes and Sea series were all labelled using pictures he discovered in an 18th century German encyclopaedia.
This Bowmore was distilled in 1974, matured in hogshead #5508 and bottled in 1988.
One of only 324 bottles produced.
Founded in 1779 by David Simpson, Bowmore is the oldest Islay distillery. In addition to this, it has the oldest existing warehouse in Scotland which is located below sea level. Recent collectable releases include their Vintner's Trilogy and a colloraboration with luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin.
