A bright, iconic Single Malt with shining notes of fruit and florals.
Located near Tain on the east coast of the northern Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery by the sea. At a full twenty-six feet in height, the stills are the tallest in Scotland — ensuring that only the lightest vapors make it to the top and resulting in a smooth, fresh, and elegant range of fine Single Malt Whiskies. Now owned by LVMH, Glenmorangie is THE best selling Single Malt Whisky in Scotland and the rest of the UK, and one of our personal favorites.
The primary Glenmorangie Spirit is called “The Original” for a reason. For decades it was the only Single Malt they produced. They have a few side releases, experimentations, and special editions, but all of their current core offerings are built upon this foundation — and a solid foundation it is. Glenmorangie The Original 10 Year Old is a classic Highland Single Malt, distilled on those famous tall stills and aged in first-fill and second-fill ex-Bourbon casks for ten years. The wood quality and supply being so important, for more than a generation they have control the making of casks in the US.
A lot of distilleries “talk” a good game about special water. But Glenmorangie is the real deal. Every drop used to make their Spirit comes from a nearby limestone aquifer — the famous Tarlogie Spring.
