Created by Compass Box in 2013 for Selfridges as a homage to the store's founder Gordon Selfridge, credited for revolutionising the retail experience and making shopping entertaining. The Entertainer contains a whopping 75% malts (Highlands, Speyside and Islay) to 25% Lowland single grain whisky.
Aged predominantly in first-fill American oak ex-bourbon barrels with approximately nine months secondary maturation in heavily toasted new French oak. Bottled without chill-filtration or the addition of caramel colour. Only 1,000 bottles were produced and these are exclusively available from Selfridges' stores and selfridges.com.
