A bright and fresh Glengoyne Single Malt that brings you as close to the grain as possible.
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.
Glengoyne 15 Year Old Single Malt has an interesting twist to its story. The aging formula is straight forward — fifteen years in a combination of ex-Bourbon, ex-Sherry, and refill casks. But the twist comes at the beginning where the malted barley is air dried. Not peat, no burners, no gas, just air. That process is a LOT slower then modern powered drying machines or any sort. But thats the point. You are not only tasting a well-aged, balance dram of Single Malt wonderfulness, you are sipping a more pure expression of the grain itself… and we think that it's pretty cool.
