Glenmorangie unveils Bond House No. 1 vintage collection

15 December, 2016

Glenmorangie has unveiled the distillery’s new vintage collection, Bond House No. 1. 

The collection of limited releases explores the origins of Glenmorangie’s reserves of aged whisky, each distilled in a single year. The inaugural expression, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990, tells its own story of a spirit which emerged from the most challenging harvest in living memory.  

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s director of distilling, whisky creation & whisky stocks, said: “The Bond House No. 1 collection gives connoisseurs a unique opportunity to explore the individuality each year has lent our award-winning spirit.  I’m delighted that Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990 will launch the collection.

“Even today, few can explain how a spirit so delicious could emerge from a barley crop of such challenges. Combined with a quarter-century of Glenmorangie’s exceptional cask expertise, its finesse and vibrancy has been preserved through the ages, to create a whisky brimming with aromas of heather honey, mandarin and candied fruits and tastes of orange syrup and vanilla, zesty, herbal top notes, baked apples and brown sugar.” 

Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990 is bottled at 43% abv and priced at £495. It is now available from selected whisky specialist retailers.
