Have you met Glenmorangie? Who is Glenmorangie? Here.. let me introduce you to a new friend of mine, Glenmorangie. He is a Single Malt Whisky but single he most definitely is NOT! =P
|My friend, The Glenmorangie Original |
|Glenmorangie casks are only ever used twice to ensure the optimal amount of flavour is extracted into the whisky.|
Single malt whisky obtains its flavour from the wooden casks used in maturation. Many of Glenmorangie’s bespoke casks are made from white oaks grown on the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, USA. They are grown slowly over 100 years and seasoned naturally in the open air for two years to preserve their porous texture – a quality that adds to the spirit’s intriguing depth.
|Stills in the Glenmorangie Distillery stand as tall as a fully grown giraffe|
While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies made in shorter stills, the Glenmorangie Distillery utilizes swan-necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland. Glenmorangie stills stand at a dizzying sixteen feet, ten and one quarter inches (5.14m) high. This height means that only the lightest and purest vapours are able to ascend to the top and condense into spirit, contributing to Glenmorangie’s distinctive complexity and layered flavour.

The superiority of the ingredients – local spring water from its own Tarlogie spring and locally grown Scottish barley, combined with the skill of the craftsmen who follow the same, time honoured approach that the company has used throughout its long history, result in a smooth spirit of distinction.
