I became an honorary Gin Rectifier last night (May 9). I took an oath and now I am duty bound to promote the best interests of gin.
This is the first time in its 175 year history that the distillery has released its oldest, most valuable Highland single malt.
The whisky is packaged in a hand blown crystal decanter with an individual number engraved in the base. The decanter sits in a solid oak wood presentation box.
Iain Weir, marketing director for Ian Macleod Distillers, brand owners of Glengoyne commented: “It is a joy to open casks after four decades and find such great balance between malt and still.”
From August, 250 crystal decanters will be available from specialist whisky outlets in the UK and worldwide, RRP £3,750.
