Glenmorangie Celebrates 175th Anniversary with a Fine Malt
In June 2018, Glenmorangie released a 16 Year Old single cask single malt, priced at £650, to commemorate this ever popular Highland distillery’s 175th Anniversary.
This fabulous whisky was distilled in September 2001 and matured solely in a first-fill ex-Bourbon cask, then bottled in March 2018. There are only 191 individually numbered bottles available, each filled at a natural cask strength of 53.1% abv.
‘This single cask bottling is the perfect way for us to mark such a seminal year in the distillery’s history,’ said Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s director of distilling, whisky creation and whisky stocks.
‘I hope those lucky enough to own a bottle will enjoy celebrating this landmark anniversary.’
What better way to celebrate an anniversary than with this fine 16 Year Old single malt
Previous releases that have marked significant anniversaries have gone on to become very collectable; a great example in the Cask 88 bottle shop is the Glenmorangie 1971. This limited edition bottling was selected to mark the 150th Anniversary of the distillery’s official opening in 1843.
The 175th Anniversary is only available from the Glenmorangie distillery, from June 2018. If you would like to see what other Glenmorangie we have in our store visit our online store today for wonderful examples such as the:
