Glenmorangie launches Cadboll to Legends Collection

05 January, 2018

Glenmorangie has launched a new permanent expression to its travel retail Legends Collection called Glenmorangie Cadboll.

Cadboll is the third permanent expression to be added to the Legends Collection, which is a travel retail exclusive range which the Scotch whisky producer believes tells the story of Glenmorangie.

The whisky has been finished in former sweet, French wine casks and has been named after the Cadboll Cup, a 16th century silver wine cup owned by the MacLeods of Cadboll, who founded Glenmorangie House.

Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie director of distilling has created the whisky hoping to reflect the sweet wines of the 16th and 17th centuries created by the MacLeods.

“The Cadboll Cup’s secret past is fascinating,” said Lumsden. “Even now, no one knows who crafted the cup – or how its marriage of Highland and continental design came to be.  Glenmorangie Cadboll is our sumptuous celebration of its contrasting character.”

Cadboll will be a travel retail exclusive retailing at £75 as a chill-filtered single malt, bottled at 43% ABV.
