Glenglassaugh releases new single malt
Portsoy's Glenglassaugh Distillery continues to grow with the release of a 40-year old single malt whisky.
With an initial run of about 800 bottles, the single malt will be an on-going product in the distillery's range.
Founded in 1875 by local entrepreneur James Moir, Glenglassaugh has stocks dating back to 1963, and the distillery was mothballed in 1986. It re-opened in 2008, and was taken over by BenRiach earlier this year.
In August, the owners released their first Glenglassaugh bottling - a 30 year-old single malt - and the new 40 year-old continues the distillery's ability to merge tropical fruits with sherry and oak spice.
The new owners have inherited some astonishingly fine whisky at Glenglassaugh, and they are delighted to launch their second expression almost nine months after taking over the distillery. There is very strong demand for Glenglassaugh whiskies around the world.
