It was the late 1800s in Hong Kong. The Taipan Clan, a secret society made up of the city's most powerful and influential, were discussing the running of the region over bottles of the best quality whiskies from Scotland. Over a century later, a group of like-minded individuals came together and founded The Taipan Co., Hong Kong's most exclusive independent bottling club for Scotch whisky, to pay tribute and embrace the traditions of this secret society where unique collectible whisky and Hong Kong’s powerful met.
As the club's launch series, the Zodiac Series pays tribute to the Taipan Clan and traditional Chinese Zodiacs with Scotland’s liquid gold. This exclusive collection of high-quality Scotch whisky is the perfect marriage between the East and the West. The series consists of 12 limited edition highly collectible unique bottles of whisky with only 250 designed bottles available for each Chinese zodiac sign.
Heading the launch is the zodiac that represents the Chinese culture perfectly – The Dragon. Historically reserved strictly for the Emperor, the Chinese dragon symbolises Power, Nobleness, and Honour. Distilled in 2012, this very first edition from The Taipan Co. is quite literally “born” in the Year of the Dragon. Much like the majestic Dragon, it is strong at 59.4% and has a wonderful red hue from the Château Lafite cask that it finished in. Each bottle is individually numbered and presented in an exquisite Taipan Co. box. Given its limited availability and high exclusivity, the Zodiac series makes an excellent gift to collectors and connoisseurs alike.
