Auchentoshan reveals first pop-up at Taoyuan Airport
Scotch whisky brand Auchentoshan has opened its first-ever pop-up in global travel retail this summer.
Located at Taiwan Taoyuan Airport, in collaboration with Beam Suntory and Everrich, the pop-up is situated in the Terminal 2 Departures hall and will be open to customers until September 2022.
Exclusively for Taiwan duty free, the Auchentoshan aged range is available in addition to the popular travel exclusive collection of American Oak Reserve, Blood Oak and Dark Oak, which were launched in October 2019.
Featuring bright orange decor and branded with a bold "A", the playful single malts pop-up has a tasting bar for sampling.
The showstopping rectangular event space includes educational and digital elements.
A gifting area upon checkout enables visitors to draft personalized messages.
This collaboration between Auchentoshan and Beam Suntory, in partnership with Everrich, is an opportunity to welcome back and entertain global shoppers in travel retail.
Manuel González, Marketing Director of Global Travel Retail, Beam Suntory, says, “We are thrilled to launch Auchentoshan’s first-ever pop-up in global travel retail.
