The Glenmorangie Distillery
 was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery. It lies just north of Tain, on the wind-swept coastline of Easter Ross. Their stills are the tallest found in Scotland – as tall as a giraffe, apparently – of the same design as those used in the 1880's which were in fact second-hand Gin stills. Which means that only the very lightest vapours make it to the top, resulting in a smooth and elegant Scotch Whisky.
 
In 2004 the distillery was sold to LVMH, a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate and has since adopted a brave strategy of giving their drams French-sounding names, which on the looks of things, has payed out for them. 
 
The Signet is one of Glenmorangie's most unusual creations. It's a combination of two different types of malted barley – high roast chocolate barley malt, which is normally used to produce brown ales, porters and stout Beer (they're more roasted, or caramelized, than what is standard in making Whisky), and Cadboll barley malt from Glenmorangie's own estate, adding creaminess to the final dram. Additionally, 'an element' of Glenmorangie's oldest stock is used, aged from 35 years up through 40 years. The Signet is twice-distilled and matured in a variety of Sherry and new charred oak casks.

Master Distiller Dr. Bill Lumsden spent his days as a student at Glasgow University experimenting and testing with many varieties of malted barley commonly used in Beer production. We could say that the Signet is the apex of his many years of sipping, trials and errors. So, here's to vision, persistence and well, tasting!

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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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.
