Aston Martin has created a special vehicle, the Aston Martin DBX Bowmore Edition, to celebrate the brand’s partnership with Islay single malt whisky distillery, Bowmore. This is the second partnership creation between the British luxury car manufacturer and Bowmore, which is owned by Beam Suntory.
Just 18 special edition Bowmore DBX’s will be built by the marque’s personalization service, Q by Aston Martin.
The SUVs will be delivered to customers at a private lifestyle experience in Scotland. Guests will travel to Edinburgh where they will be presented with their own special
edition DBX, before embarking on a 170-mile road trip through the Scottish countryside before driving onto the ferry bound for Islay.
The owners will also be treated to a private tour of the Bowmore Distillery, where they will have the opportunity to hand-fill their own bottle of a 39 year-old, specially selected Bowmore straight from the cask. They will also be given exclusive access to the No 1 Vaults the oldest maturation warehouse in the world which has played host to a number of VIP’s over the years, including members of the Royal Family.
The Bowmore DBX is offered in a paint color named Bowmore Blue, an existing archive color which has been brought back exclusively by Q by Aston Martin for this car. Bowmore-branded copper inlays using copper from the original whisky still have been used to accent the side strakes of the DBX.
Aston Martin’s partnership with Bowmore has already created ‘Black Bowmore DB5 1964’, bringing together an exceptional single malt and a genuine piston from the legendary Aston Martin DB5.
Further luxury products and lifestyle experiences will follow.
Francois Bazini, Global Managing Director of Scotch at Beam Suntory, owners of Bowmore, commented: “Our partnership with Aston Martin continues to be an exciting and enthralling collaboration and the unveiling of this special edition Bowmore DBX is another exciting step on our collective journey. We cannot wait to welcome each of the owners of this beautiful car to our distillery on Islay and show them all that Bowmore and our island home have to offer. Although we make entirely different products, our shared values and passion are very much aligned so you can expect more exciting announcements in the future.”
