The Glenmorangie Story

A single malt whisky that is "Unnecessarily Well Made".

Ealier this month, I got to taste one of the world's most delicious and complex single malt whisky. It's so good that Glenmorangie is going with the theme "Unnecessarily Well Made".

Wait, what is a "complex single malt"?

Single malt whisky obtains its flavour from the wooden casks used in maturation. Many of Glenmorangie’s bespoke casks are made from white oaks grown on the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, USA. They are grown slowly over 100 years and seasoned naturally in the open air for two years to preserve their porous texture – a quality that adds to the spirit’s intriguing depth.

Glenmorangie stills stand at a dizzying sixteen feet, ten and one quarter inches (5.14m) high. This height means that only the lightest and purest vapours are able to ascend to the top and condense into spirit, contributing to Glenmorangie’s distinctive complexity and layered flavour.

Now that you understand how Glenmorangie whisky is "Unnecessarily Well Made", head over to The Gardens to catch Glenmorangie's concept bar, SOUNDFORM Fluid.
