Scotland: Glengoyne launches 40 year old single malt

20 May, 2009

Glengoyne distillery has released a 40 year old single malt. 

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.
