Latest News Whisky - Introducing the Glendronach Distillery Manager's Cask - 22nd September, 2010

Latest News Whisky - Introducing the Glendronach Distillery Manager's Cask - 22nd September, 201022.09.10 - VISITORS to the GlenDronach Distillery in Aberdeenshire this autumn can now fill their own special bottle from the Distillery Manager’s Cask.

Alan McConnachie has personally selected a cask for bottling - and people visiting the distillery can take home a unique malt they have personally decanted from the cask.

Alan has chosen a single cask GlenDronach (No. 564) distilled in 1993, aged for 17 years in an Oloroso sherry cask and bottled at cask strength 58.4% vol. Each bottle is hand-labelled by the visitor, hand-numbered and signed by Alan. A record is then kept in the Distillery Manager’s book.

He commented: “This is a superb expression from 1993. Its appearance is startling – a pronounced red wood glow with a rich gold edge. On the nose, earthy elements merge with sweet fine oak aromas complemented with sweet cloves and allspice. And on the palate, mocha and hazelnut influences emerge, leading to a sweet rich finish. It’s spectacular.”

The bottles are exclusively available from the GlenDronach Visitor Centre at £66.99 per bottle.

Contact the Visitor Centre for more information on 01466 730 202 or email info@glendronachdistillery.co.uk
