Glengoyne’s classic single malt, but strong enough to curl your kilt.

Originally called “Burnfoot Distillery,” George Connell officially started Glengoyne in 1833 — after the Excise Tax Law of 1823 made it cost effective to do so. The fact that good old George had been hauling full casks of Whisky out of the tree-lined glen since 1820 is purely a coincidence. Anyway, the point is that they have been making single malt Whisky here for a long time. Famously, they say the Glengoyne distilling process takes longer than any other in Scotland in order to deliver their unique richness and character.

To understand the signature Glengoyne style you need to know three things. First, the malt is indirectly dried with warm air (no peat or coils). Second, they make extensive use of Sherry casks for aging across the entire core range. Third, they exclusively use “Golden Promise” barley — which has a lower grain yield, but higher quality. Only two distilleries use this rare and expensive grain — the other is The Macallan. Glengoyne Cask Strength delivers this sensuous, signature style at a jaw-dropping 58.8% ABV. No wonder it brought back the Gold medal from the International Spirits Challenge.

Smartass Corner:
The boundary between the Highlands and the Lowlands — called “The Highland Line” — runs right through the distillery grounds just outside Glasgow. This means that the still-house sits officially in the Highlands, while the aging warehouse sits officially in the Lowlands.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Glengoyne emphasizes the importance of the environment and sustainability. They started an action called "Plan Bee," and constructed two beehives at their distillery.
