Dancing Flowers of Glenmorangie on a limited-edition bottling.

In the 1730s, a brewery was built in the Scottish Highlands, namely on the Morangie Farm, and a hundred years later, it was refurbished into a distillery we all know and love: Glenmorangie. Their Spirits are not created equal - they are raised as aristocrats. The water comes from the pristine spring of Tarlogie and the magic that happens is a result of teamwork of sixteen men, affectionately known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. These knights of Whisky distill the potion in the tallest stills in Scotland, creating a lighter and more refined Whisky.

Makuto Azuma is a famous Japanese flower artist and botanical sculptor that co-founded Jardin des Fleurs. When he first smelled Glenmorangie Extremely Rare 18 Year Old, he immediately thought of a flower in bloom. It must be the rich, rounded aromas of dried fruits, and honey that turn into geranium, tuberose, and jasmine notes as they develop. Azuma Makoto tasted the softness and sweetness, complimented by Oloroso Sherry cask hints, and created a beautiful floral masterpiece of almost 100 different blooming flowers at his Tokyo studio. The art piece was called Dancing Flowers of Glenmorangie. Today, you can get this unique masterpiece imprinted on the bottle.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
