Only 762 bottles have been released with the label depicting the striking hand-drawn Spitfire LO-Q courtesy of Scottish artist Professor Dugald Cameron, formerly head of Glasgow School of Art. This very Spitfire featured flew through Sandy Johnstone's 602 (city of Glasgow) Squadron during the Battle of Britain.
Says Douglas Laing & Co's Managing Director Fred Laing: "The association between Sergeant Fred Douglas Laing and the RAF Benevolent fund was irresistible to me as I remember how proud he was of his service of war in the RAF-although a Spitfire ace he was not! I hope this iconic Spitfire drawing on the label, allied to a great Scotch Malt dram and the wonderful cause of the RAF benevolent fund will make this bottling a real bait! "
Bob Kemp, regional director of the RAF Benevolent Fund said: "We are pleased to have a team with Douglas Laing & Co. in the unique launch of this rather special Clan Denny Brooklands-Grange malt." The company has stated that all profits from this bottling to the RAF benevolent fund will come, for which we are grateful. And we will certainly raise a glass and founder Fred and remember everything he has achieved in his time with Coastal Command in the dark days of World War II. "
