Aston Martin, Bowmore Distillery Make Copper-Plated Special DBX

Aston Martin Art of Living and special trimmings for special DBX

  • Comes with copper trim from real still

  • And an experience in Scotland you can’t otherwise buy


Aston Martin is teaming up with the Bowmore Distillery to create 18 special edition DBX models that get styling inspired by the whisky process and that will be delivered to customers at a special experience on Islay.

The Bowmore Edition Aston Martin DBX was created by Q by Aston Martin, the company’s personalisation service. The special editions start with a paint colour called Bowmore Blue, which is actually from the Aston catalogue and has been brought back by Q for these cars. Other exterior paint choices are available, though if you’re going to pick something different for this special, the only other colour we’d recommend would be Q Golden Saffron. Since it most closely resembles a dram of Bowmore 18 single malt.

Bowmore branded copper inlays adorn the side strakes of the DBX, and the metal has actually been taken from a whisky still. Inside, Obsidian or Copper Tan colour choices are available, and both have highlights of Bowmore Tweed throughout, a pattern created by the Islay Woollen Mill incorporating copper and blue colours.

Interior accents like cup holders, sill plaques, and the centre console trim are metal taken from the Bowmore still, and each one comes with Q accessories like a Bowmore tweed picnic blanket and leather case.

Even more exclusively, each buyer will be invited to Edinburgh to take delivery of their DBX before going on a 170-mile Aston Martin Art of Living road trip through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park before taking a ferry to Islay. On the isle, the three-night stay will include a private distillery tour that features the chance to hand-fill a bottle of 39-year-old Bowmore and access to the oldest whisky maturation warehouse in the world.

Deliveries start near the end of next year, and we’ll point out that the distillery comes after the drive. As it should.
