From the Label:
In the far North of Scotland, beside the ancient Royal Burgh of Tain, lies the Glenmorangie Distillery. Established in 1843, Glenmorangie is still to this day perfected by the Sixteen Men of Tain. In the Gaelic language Glenmorangie means “valley of tranquillity”, perfectly describing the distillery’s peaceful setting on the banks of the picturesque Dornoch Firth.
The finest golden barley and mineral-rich water from the Glenmorangie Distillery’s own Tarlogie springs come together in the tallest whisky stills in Scotland to produce a spirit of rare finesse and delicacy
The new spirit is then matured in the finest Bourbon oak casks. Our pioneering research into the effect of wood selection on the whisky maturation has led to the development of bespoke casks, crafted from the slow growth, air seasoned wood from hand selected oak trees. The spirit is gently matured in traditional stone built, earth floored warehouses and it is only after ten years that Glenmorangie reaches a perfect balance of sweetness and complexity.
The resulting mature spirit has a soft, alluring mouthfeel, combining beautifully with the hallmarks of Glenmorangie; a light, honeyed sweetness fused with notes of citrus, vanilla and almonds. Indeed a famous French perfumier identified no less than twenty-six distinct aromas in “the Original”
Icon of Scotland
Glenmorangie is very proud of its roots in the ancient lands of Ross-shire, in particular the eigth century Cabdoll Stone lying close to the distillery and Glenmorangie House. An icon of the Picts, the original people of Scotland, it is as intriguing and compelling as Glenmorangie itself and the inspiration for our emblem.
