A perfect introduction to the Glenrothes Club.

The tiny town of Rothes by the River Spey is home to four distilleries and has Scotch embedded in its DNA. One of those Whisky-making establishments is the Glenrothes Distillery (its name is literally "the valley of Rothes"), with history dating back to 1879. With ancient recipes and tradition by their side, they have been making award-winning Whiskies for decades.

This very yellow-label bottle is a great choice for those who have never met a Glenrothes before and would love to become a member of the classy club. One of five Soleo Whiskies, this 10-year-old also celebrates everything Sherry. The yellow color represents the color of the grape at the point it's plucked from the vine, while the bottle welcomes you with wonderful vanilla and citrus aromas, before your palate tastes flamboyant flavors of lemon peel and light malt. Welcome to the club.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
The Berry Brothers gave Cutty Sark back to the Edrington Group, when they acquired Glenrothes.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
