We’re offering a singular parcel of Glenglassaugh to subscribers with some serious discounts. Having revisited these malts over the last five years, we can say with certainty that the quality / price ratios are exceptional. Non chill filtered with abvs of 46% plus, the core range of Revival, Evolution, and Torfa are gaining age with each release. Currently around eight years old, the results are already remarkable, while new lines include a number of very tasty wood finishes. We suggest you load up while stocks last at these never-to-be repeated discounts.
Described as a 'coastal' distillery, being located on the north coast of Speyside near Glen Deveron and Banff, Glenglassaugh has traditionally produced malt for the blending market, in particular Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse, so there was never a push for it’s own single malts. Suffering from the recession riddled decline that plagued the Scotch whisky industry in the early 1980s, it was mothballed in ’86, restarting production in November 2008 when it was acquired by the Edrington Group. A complete refurbishment followed. Billy Walker (x-Glendronach master distiller) famously revived the operation in 2013 when it was purchased by Benriach. Billy Walker and Co. quickly re-established the brand as a serious producer. In 2016 Brown-Forman purchased Glenglassaugh alongside GlenDronach and Benriach distilleries. One of our team was lucky enough to visit the distillery last year and spoke with Craig Johnstone (Global Malt Advocate for the group, and manager of the single cask program across all distilleries). Johnstone believes the base spirit at Glenglassaugh is quite simply the finest among the group - quite a statement given the high standards set by both Glendronach and Benriach. The house style makes for robust, superbly balanced, full-flavoured whiskies - often with a peated component.
