The GWCT Scottish Game Fair is delighted to announce an exclusive whisky event at this year’s 26th annual event at Scone Palace on Friday 4 July.
From 11am to midday, Ian Macleod Distillers will be staging an intimate complimentary tutored tasting of three of its finest Glengoyne Highland Single Malts: the 10 year old, 15 year old and 21 year old.
World renowned as one of the finest Highland malts with an illustrious heritage, Glengoyne has been producing exceptional single malt whisky for nearly 200 years. What makes this Highland single malt Scotch whisky so unique is a commitment to tradition and time-honoured craftsmanship.
Worth the wait
Almost to the letter, Glengoyne follows the principles its founders established. Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch whiskies are handcrafted with time-honoured skills passed down from one generation of distillers to the next. The distillery boasts the slowest distillation process in Scotland with patience the key to the Glengoyne journey.
Glengoyne is a distillery like no other. Taking its name from the glen in which it sits – ‘Glen Guin’ or ‘Glen of the Wild Geese’ – it is highly regarded as Scotland’s most beautiful distillery, residing close to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park – nestled into Dumgoyne Hill.
The distillery emanates a sense of pride – a feeling that comes from doing things properly and not cutting corners, ensuring that every drop of Glengoyne is the best it can truly be.
The pure, clean water for the spirit comes from the waterfall at the distillery. The barley is dried by air, never peat, to produce a subtle yet complex spirit where all the delicate, rich and fruity flavours are freely expressed.
An investment of time and care, this beautiful Highland malt collection is matured in the finest sherry oak casks from Jerez in Southern Spain. No other stage of the process has as great a bearing on the end flavour as these casks do.
Up to six years from oak forest to Highland distillery, that’s how long it takes before the hand-selected casks are ready to receive the precious Glengoyne spirit.
They are then stacked – only three high – for maturation in traditional cool stone-built dunnage warehouses for 10 to 20 years or more.
Glengoyne has an unmistakable natural colour with deep amber shades and a rich glow developed through time and wood alone. To change one element in the Glengoyne production would be to alter the unique taste of the malt.
Testament to the award-winning qualities of the malt, Glengoyne was recently awarded a double gold medal for its 18 Year Old and 21 Year Old malts, gold for its 12 Year Old and silver for its 15 Year Old at the prestigious 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
