Ian Macleod Distillers has decided to put its Glengoyne single malt Scotch whisky in casks that have been used in Australia's Hunter Valley to age Glenguin wines.

Lord Robin Tedder is the third baron of Glenguin, which was the original name of distillery - changed 100 years ago to the more phonetic Glengoyne. The first baron got the title after a distinguished war career, having served under Eisenhower as deputy supreme commander in the second world war. His father was a customs & excise officer at Glenguin from 1889 to 1893. The use of the casks celebrates the Tedder link.

The Scotch is described as "malty, with subtle oakiness; spicy, yet honeyed. It has a pepperiness with hints of vanilla and dark berry fruits".
