A World without Duty Free

International brands, luxury products, 24 hour shopping and buying gifts are the things which come to everybody’s mind when planning an international trip. As a frequent traveller, you get to experience the joy of shopping for international luxury brands at duty free stores at international airports.

A duty free store is a destination to get top international brands from all corners of the world. Various product categories at considerably lesser prices than downtown stores attract travellers. But have you ever wondered what travelling would be like if there were no duty free stores? What would the World be like without duty free shopping?

Limited access to international brands

One major fantasy of modern travellers is to acquire renowned international brands that they read about only in glossy fashion magazines or browse on fashion websites. If you are a brand loyalist for a high-end brand that is not easy to get at your local lifestyle store and you’d love an opportunity to shop when travelling abroad, you’d find it really hard without a duty free store that allows you a range of products under one roof, to choose from.

Heavy taxes on branded products

Even if you find your favourite brands in city retail stores, you will shop sparingly, because your favourite international brands will burn a hole in your pocket, as the prices for such products are sky high. VAT, import tax, and other taxes add to make up the incredibly high prices of these brands at local retail outlets.

Travelling won’t be as much fun

Travelling is always fun when shopping is a part of your itinerary. For some, travelling without shopping is quite a boring affair. Duty free stores at the airport are the best places to kill time before your flight or to pick up gifts. Would waiting in transit be as much fun if you didn’t have anything to do?

Gifts will be expensive

Everyone likes to meet their colleagues or loved ones after a trip with a surprise gift. At duty free stores, you have the freedom to pick up gifts for those waiting for you back home, without any hassle. In addition, these stores have great discounts and offers on wide categories, so you can conveniently buy gifts for kids, your better half, a business associate, your boss, friends, etc. Without duty free stores, you will allot time on your precious travel itinerary to make time for shopping and not to mention, also pay a fortune for the same.

Not much variety

Duty free stores give you the joy and pleasure of shopping for a wide range of products from a number of global brands. You can pick up products like gadgets, liquors, perfumes, chocolates, fashion accessories and much more from famous international luxury brands. Now imagine shopping from different shops, at different places, spending time on comparisons and maybe even spending more than you want. Would you want to go through all that trouble?

So yes, international travel would not the same without duty free shops.

 

Bruichladdich: A familiar name for Islay Malt lovers

Bruichladdich blog post image

Bruichladdich (pronounced Brook-la-dee) is a Scottish distillery manufacturing peaty Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the isle of Islay in Scotland. The name is Gaelic for ‘stony shore bank’, reminding one of the rocky shores along the coast of Islay. This distillery was built by a dynastic Scottish family of three brothers, William, John and Robert Harvey in 1881 on the shore of Loch Indaal on the Rinns of Islay.

Let’s take a look at the variety of single malts manufactured by this eminent distillery. We start with Bruichladdich Rocks, the cheapest whisky from the company, which master distiller Jim McEwan says is ‘just a young, non-aged whisky that was put on the market to take some of the heat off the older stocks.’ Then there is The Organic, also a young whisky where the organic barley was pronounced to produce a distinct taste to make up for the lack of ageing. Then comes the Port Charlotte Peat Project, an attempt to create a smoky peaty Whisky in the traditional style of Islay Whiskies. The Port Charlotte Peat Project was refined to bring out the Port Charlotte PC7, a seven-year old version of Port Charlotte, marketed as a collector’s edition.

Then came the Laddie Ten, the distillery’s most celebrated 10-year-old. A non-chill filtered spirit that washes sublimely over the palate, this drink is a true achievement in the elite world of Single Malts, and is testament to Bruichladdich’s distillers’ craft. This bottle is today snapped up by connoisseurs and collectors alike. Not long after The Laddie was introduced, the distillery was taken over by Remy Cointreau of France.

Today, one of Bruichladdich’s most famous products is the Octomore, the most heavily-peated barley Whisky ever. Casked in the finest oak possible and mixed with Sauterne, one of the sweetest wines available, the Whisky gives off a plethora of aromas and flavours, of peat smoke, leather, tobacco, mint toffee, and more, creating a very surreal impression on the palate. Only around 18,000 bottles of this exotic Whisky have been manufactured and distributed worldwide since its release in 2012.

Another Whisky of note is Black Art, introduced first in 1989 by master distiller Jim McEwan using his own secret recipe. To this date, no one has been able to decrypt the mystery of this beguiling drink’s recipe and flavours.

All these superb Single Malts are available now at Bengaluru Duty Free, Bangalore’s best duty free shopping destination at the Kempegowda International Airport at duty free prices.

These are the Bruichladdich Single Malts available at Bengaluru Duty Free, and their prices:

Scottish Barley – $88
Bere Barley – $79
Octomore – $174
Black Art – $316
Port Charlotte – $143

So the next time you have friends over and want to give them a great time they will remember forever, open a bottle of Bruichladdich and enter a special realm of taste, aroma and perfection.
