19 October 2015, Dubai, UAE:  Le Clos, the fine wine and luxury spirits retailer, has become internationally renowned for showcasing exclusive products and being at the forefront of global trends and, there is nothing more on trend than Japanese Whisky.

To celebrate its 7th birthday, Le Clos is rewarding its customers with the chance to win one of the most sought after products in wines and spirits globally – The Yamazaki 18YO. The celebrations kicked off on 14th October for one month, and all customers making a purchase in excess of USD $100 will be entered into the draw to win one of these increasingly rare bottles. Le Clos is also giving customers another opportunity to own The Yamazaki 18YO through a simultaneous silent auction, where entrants are able to place their bids in-store or online at www.leclos.net.

The Yamazaki 18YO is a multi-award winning single malt, garnering gold medals at both the International Spirits Challenge and San Francisco World Spirits competitions. Le Clos recognized the importance of this product and secured unprecedented allocations of Japanese Whisky back in 2013, which led to The Yamazaki 18YO being one of its top five sellers in 2014.

Ben Odgers, General Manager at Le Clos, commented, “We are committed to exciting our customers each time they visit, and giving them the chance to win some of the last bottles of The Yamazaki 18YO commercially available will help them celebrate our birthday with us.  We are looking forward to showcasing our new Japanese Whisky range later this year, which we have carefully curated, and it will be housed in a bespoke display. Whether looking for that missing Karuizawa bottling, rare 35YO malts or that mid-priced bottle for a great gift, we have all occasions covered.”

Complementing its Japanese range, the award-winning retailer has an extensive portfolio of more than 1,000 fine wines and 400 luxury spirits from all four corners of the globe, starting from only USD $28. This, as well as a team of highly qualified staff, who combined speak more than 20 languages, in addition to its unique services such as complimentary bottle engraving, in-store tastings and a concierge delivery service, highlight Le Clos’ dedication to providing a world class shopping experience for its customers.
