A fifteen year old limited edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky finished in Scottish Oak casks exclusively crafted for the Glengoyne distillery.
This imparts a unique robustness without masking the subtle and complex nature of the spirit.

Glengoyne Distillery

takes its name from “Glen Guin”, glen of the wild geese; the most perfect and
romantic location for the making of scotch whisky. The pure water that filters
off the hill of Dumgoyne tumbles down the softly wooded glen to a small water-
fall above Glengoyne, Scotland’s most beautiful distillery.

Like allGlengoyne malts, the Twenty One Years Old is distilled from air-dried barley
untainted by the harshness of peat smoke. A natural old gold in colour the Glengoyne
style archieves its optimum balance of complexity and flavor. The soft taste of red
apples, honey, sherry and vanilla create an aromatic sensation with a nip of ginger
all leading to a very long slightly spicy finish.

Colour: Deep copper, meandering legs
Nose: Red apples, toffee, sherry, spicy strudel
Mouthfeel: Coating
Taste: Lots of sherry, honey, oak with a developing aromatic sensation. Ends with
a heavenly cinnamon nip
Finish: Long, sherry, spicy, warm and dry.

'A fascinating experiment'

This distillery is passed on the West Highland Way a few miles north of Glasgow and this cask is the Society's first bottling from here.
This beautiful sherry-brown dram spent six years in a refill hoggie and two in a butt. It is a young, fresh whisky with an interesting overlay of sherry.
The unreduced nose has scented wood, Oloroso sherry, caramel, golden syrup and luxury dried fruits. Reduced it has charred wood, sultanas and sherbet.
The taste, which is rich and full, long and hot, yet deliciously subtle has rum and raisin notes with some wood. With water the flavours evoke toffee and dark chocolate.
A fascinating, well-intregated experiment in wood finishing.

Burnfoot is a whisky that has gone back to its roots. In 1833 George Connell set up a distil-
lery in the secluded Glen of Glengoyne, once the happy hunting ground of small – time ban-
dits, smugglers and wary  crofters tending their illicit whisky stills

The leafly Glengoyne landscape may have been ideal for lying low, but it was just the job
for creating gentle, easy – drinking whisky. Soft  spring water, filtered through ancient vol-
canic rock, makes its way via a natural watercourse to the foot of the burn

Hence the distillery’s original name Burnfoot, which later became  the much celebrated

Burnfoot combines nearly 200 years of whisky – making heritage with a distinctive 21st
century twist. It’s clear, bright and unmasked by peat smoke – an honest whisky with just
a hint of rebelliousness

The Southern Highlands


Dumgoyne, Stirlingshire. Licentiehouder: Lang Brothers Limited. Eigendom van Robertson & Baxter Ltd.

Gebouwd door Archibald McLellan in 1833 als Glenguin distilleerderij . Glengoyne was ook enige tijd bekend onder de namen Burnfoot en Dumgoyne. Glengoyne is Keltisch en betekent vallei van de ganzen.
In 1876 werden Alexander en Gavin Lang, whisky-, rum- en wijnhandelaren te Glasgow de eigenaars en vanaf toen werd de distilleerderij Glengoyne genoemd.

Glengoyne ligt 18 kilometer ten noorden van Glasgow en precies op de denkbeeldige lijn die loopt van Greenock naar Dundee, de 'Highland Line', die Schotland verdeelt in de Lowlands en Highlands.
Glengoyne is een kleine distilleerderij, tot de verbouwing in 1966 kon men 826.000 liter spirit per jaar produceren, nu 1.50.000 liter per jaar.

Glengoyne is gelegen in een kleine Glen en wegens gebrek aan ruimte koopt men de mout sinds 1910 al van elders in.
Het water voor Glengoyne komt van de Carron Valley, dat regenwater verzameld van de heuvels ten noorden van de distilleerderij.
Er is 100 liter water nodig om 70 cl Glengoyne Single Malt Whisky te produceren. De gebruikte gerstsoorten zijn Golden Promise en Chariot. De gebruikte mout wordt niet geturfrookt.
Er zijn drie ketels, een Wash Still van 16.500 liter en twee Low Wine Stills van elk 5000 liter.
De ketels worden indirekt verhit met stoom en na twee keer te zijn gedistilleerd komt de drank met 71-72 % uit de ketels, waarna de whisky wordt aangelengd met water van de Carron vallei tot 63,5 %.
Opslagkapaciteit is ongeveer 10.000 vaten met 5.000.000 liter whisky.
'The Angel Share' is 2 % per jaar.
Er wordt gelagerd in sherry vaten.
Er werken met inbegrip van de manager Robertson  & Baxter Ltd, heel bekende en beroemde wijnhandelaren en whiskyblenders te Glasgow, waarin Highland Distillers sinds 1948 een groot belang hebben.
In September 1993 koopt Grand Metropolitan (GrandMet) samen met Robertson & Baxter de laatste onafhankelijke graandistilleerderij, North British.

GrandMet en R & B waren al voor 38 % medeeigenaar van North British, voor de resterende aandelen werd £ 50.000.000 betaald.
The Langs founded Lang Brothers Limited in 1861 and, in order to ensure continuity of quality supplies of malt for their blended whisky, the company bought Glengoyne Distillery in 1876.

Fiercely independent, Langs formed partnerships with Robertson & Baxter, Macallan, North British Distillery, Berry Brothers and Highland Distillers to protect themselves from the predatory nature of, in particular, The Distillers Company Limited.

Each of the partners held a shareholding in the other companies, making a hostile takeover extremely difficult to execute.
In 1965 the company became a whollyowned subsidiary of Robertson & Baxter, whose public persona is now the Edrington Group.

Voorjaar 1999 kregen de Edrington Group en Highland Distillers verschil van mening over het niet of wel aanhouden van de beursnotering.
September 1999 wordt bekend dat Edrington en William Grant & Sons samen Highland Distillers overnemen.
De naam van de nieuwe onderneming luidt: The 1887 Company, wat slaat op het stichtingsjaar van Highland Distillers.
Edrington verkrijgt 70 %-, William Grant & Sons 30 % van de aandelen.

Zomer 2003
Ian Macleod & Co te Broxburn neemt Glengoyne over met de voorraden en de merknaam Langs.

Glengoyne is situated little more than a dozen miles from Glasgow, just south of the village of Killearn, in 'Rob Roy' country.
It is an attractive distillery with a traditional look and feel to it, and despite its comparative proximity to the city, the location in a wooded glen at the foot of Dumgoyne Hill could hardly be bettered.
The Glengoyne Burn flows from Dumgoyne Hill into the distillery site by way of a dramatic, 50 foot high waterfall and is used for cooling purposes before being sent on its way to nearby Loch Lomond.
Glengoyne was first licensedin 1833, but it is believed that distilling on the site predates that and certainly the area was once a hotbed for smuggling.
In 1866 local historian Guthrie Smith wrote that during the early years of the 19th century, 'the smoke of 13 illicit stills' was visible in the vicinity.
The distillery was built by George Connell, who leased the land on which it was constructed, and the licence was held by members of the MacLellan family for many years.
Originally christened Glenguin, the distillery was known as Burnfoot at the time when it was bought by Lang Brothers Ltd in 1876. They changed the name back to Glenguin, or Glen Guin, and the present spelling was adopted around 1905.
A programme of modernisation and expansion was undertaken following the acquisition of Lang Brothers Ltd by the Robertson & Baxter Group in 1965 and a third still was added during reconstruction work in 1966/67.
One of the original warehouses built by George Connel still stands today, and serves as the shop and visitor reception area, which plays host to around 0 people each year.
Eight working warehouses have a capacity of nearly two million litres, or 4,5 million bottles of spirit.
The geolical Highland Fault Line which separates Lowland and Highland distilleries runs below the A 81 road from Glasgow to Aberfoyle in front of Glengoyne. This means that although the whisky is made in the Highlands, it matured in the Lowlands, as Glengoyne's warehouses are to the south-west of the A 81.
Robertson & Baxter is now part of the Edrington Group and under their ownership, a great deal of Glengoyne found its way into Langs Supreme and other blends.

Then, in April 2003, the distillery and a significant amount of maturing stock were acquired by Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd. Although the firm was founded om 1936 by Leonard Russell, it had never owned a distillery before Glengoyne. The third generation Leonard Russel is currently managing director of the Broxburn-based blending and bottling business, best known for its Isle of Skye blended Scotch Whisky.
The purchase of Glengoyne has given Ian Macleod a 'flagship' single malt with clear growth potential, the option for a reciprocal trading of new fillings, which is attractive to any blender and a particularly pictureque focal point for the business.
The distillery boasts a capacity of 1,2 million litres per annum and Leonard Russel says 'We've doubled distilling output and we're still not working at 100 per cent capacity. We've increased the number of mashes per week and we still have nine whisky-makers as before.
'The stocks were the biggest part of the acquisition and we continue to make whisky exactly the same way at Glengoyne, using Golden Promise barley'.
Low in yield but high in quality, Golden Promise has been largely abondoned by distillers, with the exception of Glengoyne and The Macallan.

Not only is the variety of barley unusual, but so is the fact that during malting no 'peat reek' is introduced. Barley destined for Glengoyne is dried solely using warm air, as has long been the case. Given the use of unpeated malt, Glengoyne is perhaps stylistically closer to a Lowland than a Highland single malt and it is sometimes likened in character to the triple-distilled Auchentoshan.
Indeed, although standard 'double' distillation has long been the norm at Glengoyne, after visiting the distillery during 1880s while researching his epic The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom, Alfred Barnard wrote 'We may here mention that the Spirits are distilled three times by the various processes of working in the Distillery'.
Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd use the promotinal slogan 'The authentic taste of malt whisky untainted by peat smoke'.
'The real taste of malt' is our whole platform for marketing the whisky', explains Leonard Russel, nothing that the lack of peat alloows the true character of malt to come through in the whisky, described as 'clear, bright, subtle, yet delicate'.
Certainly there is a creamy, fruity, floral, malt character to the finished product and its undoubted smoothness is attributed by its makers to the fact that the three stills with their distinctive 'boil balls' are run very slowly.

distillery plus the brand Langs from the

Baxter) for £ 7.2 million

In Scotland as a whole there was always a shortage of suitable trees. Good specimens were highly prized by shipwrights; smaller and older trees by furniture-makers; indigenous woods of any size were coppiced to provide charcoal for iron smelters.
As demand for whisky casks increased after about 1850, distillers and blenders turned to Europe, and in particular to 'second-hand' casks which had come into the country filled with wine, principally (but not exclusively) sherry.
Only after World War 11 did the trade in ex-bourbon barrels develop, although now casks from this source account for 90 % of the wood coming into the system, around 20 casks per annum.
So today the Scottish cooper's job is largely to rebuilt and repair casks - which is not to say they cannot raise casks from scratch, it is just that they rarely have the opportunity.
George Espey, Managing Director of The Clyde Cooperage, the company which built the new Scottish oak casks for Glengoyne, says he was 'very excited to be part of the Scottish Oak project, which would ultimately lead, probably for the first time, to a totally 'Made in Scotland' Scotch. And because of the limited supply of Scottish iak, and its cost, it will probably be the last time, as well!'
Glengoyne is part of the Edrington Group, and the dream of using Scottish oak was made possible when a former director of the company offered a small stand of trees from his estate in Angus. The trees were between 120 and 200 years old. They were felled in the autumn of 1998, and because there was no sawmill nearby, the trunks were quartered on site, using portable band-saws.
Traditionally, Scottish oak (and European oak geberally) is split rather than saw, but the wastage involved is huge. As it was, only two-thirds of the oak felled (14,5 cubic metres) was of sufficient quality to be used.
The quartered pieces then went to Lochwinnoch for milling into stave lenghts and air drying. By the end of 1998 moisture content had dropped from 30 % to around 20 %, but it proved impossible to bring it down much further by this traditional method, owing to the dampness of the climate, so a year later the stave lenghts were finished by kiln drying to 16 % moisture.
The staves were jointed and the casks raised and 'toasted' with a medium char in November 1999.
Thirty-one hogsheads were made, in all. First they were filled with grain whisky for four months, to season the wood and extract unwanted 'woodiness'. Then twenty-one casks were filled with new make Glengoyne and fifteen with mature whisky at 15 years old. They were left for a year, then vatted and re-racked into well-used marrying casks to mingle their flavours and settle down.
These casks were bottled in July 2001 at an average cask strenght of 53,5 %, without chill filtration, and yielded 0 70 cl bottles.

Ian Macleod Distiilers buys Tamdhu Distillery from Edrington, also the former owner
of  Glengoyne.

Since purchasing Glengoyne Distillery in 2003, Ian Macleod Distillers has more than
doubled sales of Glengoyne Single Malt.

Ian Macleod has built four additional maturation warehouses, capable of housing
up to 5 million litres and has invested in the visitor experience with renovations
and improvenents increasing  visitor numbers to nearly 50,000.

The Glengoyne Brand is currently promoting a new long - term marketing initiative
based  on the fact that Glengoyne is 'distilled more slowly than any other Scotch
Whisky for the highest quality' and is investing upwards of one million pound in the
U.K. drive alone over the next two years.

Up to six years from oak forest to highland distillery, that is how long it takes

Maturation, Warehouseman

We've been learning our trade since 1833, why change something that took generations
to perfect ?

It runs a combination of long (and very long) fermentations, while distillation in its three stills (one wash, two spirit) is extremely slow. All of the stills have boil bulbs, which increases the amount of copper availability, while the gentle heating of the wash and spirit also helps to maximise the amount of time the alcohol vapour can play with the copper. This maximising of reflux produces a gentle, sweet, and fruity new make.

There is however sufficient weight in the spirit to be able to balance with maturation in ex-Sherry butts – a signature of Edrington’s distilleries – which has been retained by Ian MacLeod.

A distillery has stood on this site since 1833, when the Edmonstone family (the main landowner of the area) began production, passing control to the MacLelland family in the 1850s who, in turn, sold it to the Glasgow-based blender Lang Bros in 1876. It was they who changed the distillery’s original name, Burnfoot, to Glen Guin which was anglicised to Glengoyne in 1905.

It played a vital role within Lang Brothers' blends [the best known being Supreme] and those of Robertson & Baxter (now Edrington). The latter firm bought Lang Brothers. in 1965.

Single malt bottlings began in the early 1990s, when Glengoyne was sold as 'the unpeated malt', while much was also made of the fact that, geographically, the distillery is in the Highlands while its warehouses, directly across the road, are in the Lowlands.

Edrington considered it surplus to its requirements in 2003, selling it to Ian MacLeod for £7.2m. Its new owner has subsequently (and successfully) focused on developing the brand as a single malt and the distillery as a multifunctional tourist destination. It now gets in excess of 50,000 visitors a year.

Highland single malt Glengoyne has released the sixth batch of its Cask Strength expression – and the first to be 100% matured in ex-Sherry casks.

Glengoyne Cask Strength No 6
Amber glow: Glengoyne Cask Strength No 6 owes its colour to Sherry cask maturation
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No 6 includes whiskies matured in a combination of first-fill European oak Sherry casks, American oak Sherry butts and refill Sherry butts.

Bottled at its natural strength of 59.8% abv without chill filtration or artificial colour, the NAS (no age statement) single malt is said to have ‘intense flavours of Demerara sugar and gooseberry’ on the palate.

‘We are absolutely delighted to introduce Cask Strength No 6, the first ever exclusively Sherry oak-matured expression in the Cask Strength series,’ said Katy Macanna, brand manager for Glengoyne at distillery owner Ian Macleod Distillers.

‘As tradition dictates for the Glengoyne Collection, this single malt has a deep golden colour, created by time and cask alone.’

Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No 6 has a UK recommended retail price of £54.99 for a 70cl bottle

Safe from the reach of the law, George Connell begins distilling in secret at Burnfoot Farm – where you’ll find today’s Glengoyne Distillery. The hidden waterfall and its miniature glen make it easy for George to escape the notice of the Exciseman. He’s not the first to distil here illegally – it’s reckoned George learned the stillman’s art from his grandfather

Ian Macleod Distillers is based at Broxburn, West Lothian, and owns Glengoyne distillery in Stirlingshire and Tamdhu distillery at Knockando on Speyside. Its principal blended brands are Isle of Skye, Smokehead and King Robert, though a range of independent bottlings are also undertaken under the ‘As We Get it’ Chieftain’s and Dun Bheagan banners. As the world’s 10th largest Scotch whisky company, Macleod’s produce and sell over 15 million bottles of spirits every year.

The firm is a major supplier to the ‘buyers’ own brand’ market and has provided own-label spirits to some of Europe's largest supermarket groups for over 40 years. Macleod’s owns 50% of Broxburn Bottlers, with the other 50% being held by J&G Grant of Glenfarclas. The chairman of Ian Macleod is founder Peter Russell, whose son Leonard serves as managing director.

Peter Russell’s father Leonard started out in business as a whisky broker in 1936, expanding into blending and exporting. Peter joined the firm in 1956, and the name Ian Macleod & Co and its Isle of Skye blended Scotch whisky brand was acquired by what had become Peter J Russell & Co in 1963. Ian Macleod & Co had been incorporated in 1933. The unspecified Islay single malt Smokehead, with a singularly contemporary image, was introduced in 2006.

The company achieved a long-held ambition of becoming a distiller when it purchased Glengoyne from The Edrington Group for £7.2 million in 2003. A second distillery, Tamdhu, was acquired from Edrington eight years later, and reopened in 2012 having been mothballed since 2009.

In September 2016 the company bought whisky blender and gin distiller Spencerfield Spirit Company for an undisclosed sum, adding the Pig's Nose, Feathery and Sheep Dip blended Scotch whiskies, and Edinburgh Gin brand to its portfolio.

November 2018
Glengoyne distillery has released batch six of its Teapot Dram, created in tribute to the dramming practices of its workers in the 1970s.

Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch 6
Sixth edition: Glengoyne’s Teapot Dram has become a ‘firm favourite’ among fans
Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch 6 has been matured in first-fill oloroso Sherry casks and bottled without chill filtration at a cask strength of 59.3% abv.

The sixth edition in the series, just 2,772 bottles will be available exclusively from the Glengoyne distillery shop, and online at, for £90.

The whisky is described as having aromas of ‘fresh pineapple and digestive biscuits’, with notes of ‘sweet treacle, cinnamon, marzipan and cloves’ on the palate.

Katy Macanna, brand manager for Glengoyne, said: ‘The Teapot Dram is a firm favourite amongst Glengoyne fans, and we’re delighted to share the latest release in the series.

‘Our team is a vital part of that history, and the Teapot Dram series helps to tell the story of one of our old and most treasured distillery traditions.’

The Teapot Dram series is inspired by the tradition of doling out three fingers of whisky matured in oloroso Sherry casks to distillery workers three times a day.

Workers with weaker dispositions would pour the remnants of their drams into a copper teapot that stood on the canteen windowsill, which their older colleagues would help themselves to.

The practice, known as dramming, was discontinued in the 1970s.

October 2017
Highland single malt Glengoyne has announced a limited 30-year-old release, with only 6,000 bottles, taken from 13 casks, made available each year.

Sherry influence: A mix of first-fill and refill Sherry butts was used to age the malt
The new expression is made up of a vatting of one-third first-fill European oak Sherry butts and two-thirds refill Sherry butts, all matured in Glengoyne’s traditional dunnage warehouses.

Bottled non-chill-filtered at 46.8% abv, Glengoyne 30 Year Old is priced at £600 a bottle, and comes in a solid oak box with rose gold bung and hessian square, designed to reflect the traditional cask sampling method used at the distillery.

‘The refill butts impart plenty of flavour and colour, but do not dominate or overpower our spirit with too much oak,’ said Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne distillery manager.

‘They also tend to be fresher and fruitier, good for balancing the richness and weight of the [first-fill] Sherry casks, adding pleasant top notes and complexity.’

October 2017
Glengoyne has unveiled a new collection of single malts designed to honour the Sherry casks used by the Highland distillery.

Glengoyne Spirit of Oak
Sherried series: Glengoyne Spirit of Oak has been created in homage to the Sherry cask
The Spirit of Oak collection is a four-bottle range of malts matured in ex-Sherry casks that will be released exclusively in global travel retail next year.

Glengoyne Cuartillo, named after the rural neighbourhood, or pagos, in Jerez, Spain, has been matured in first-fill American oak oloroso Sherry casks. Bottled at 40% abv and without an age statement, it is said to contain notes of ‘toffee, apricots, and a hint of cinnamon’.

Glengoyne Balbaína, also named in tribute to the pagos its cask came from, has been matured in first-fill European oak oloroso casks, and bottled at 43% abv. The expression is described as having notes of ‘caramel, dried apple, and cloves’.

The only expression in the collection with an age statement is Glengoyne 28 Year Old, which has been matured in first-fill American and European oak oloroso Sherry casks. Bottled at 46.8% abv, it is described as ‘complex and deep, with rich fruit and elegant spice’.

Lastly, Glengoyne PX has been aged in European and American oak before being finished in Pedro Ximenez casks. Bottled at 46% abv, it is said to embody flavours of ‘fresh oak, spice and a touch of caramelised sugar’.

Andy Lane, travel retail director for Glengoyne owner Ian Macleod Distillers, said: ‘The casks give our spirit 100% of its rich natural colour, and up to 80% of the flavour. So the rewards of slow maturation in fine Sherry wood are there to taste.’

The Curatillo and Balbaína will be sold in one-litre bottles, and the PX and 28-year-old expressions in 70cl bottles.

The Spirit of Oak collection will be available in duty free stores worldwide from early 2018, with prices yet to be confirmed.

Lang Brothers set out as a blender and whisky merchant, before extending into distilling with the purchase of Glengoyne distillery. Ian Macleod Distillers, which now owns the Lang brand, produces two blends using the brothers’ name: Lang’s Supreme and Select 12 Year Old.

The company of Lang Bros Ltd was established in 1861 by Gavin and Alexander Lang, who acted as blenders and whisky merchants. In 1876 the firm acquired Glengoyne distillery, then known as Burnfoot, and changed the name to Glen Guin, later anglicised to Glengoyne.

In 1965 fellow Glasgow whisky company Robertson & Baxter Ltd – part of the Edrington Group –  took over Lang Bros and expanded Glengoyne distillery from two to three stills. In 2003 Ian Macleod Ltd bought Glengoyne and the Lang brand from Edrington for £7.2 million.

LANG's is  historic brand known as ‘the Glengoyne blend’ for its high proportion of the distillery’s malt.
A long-established blended Scotch brand, Langs was once synonymous with Robertson & Baxter, the Glasgow-based blender that’s now part of The Edrington Group.

Both of the brand’s expressions – Langs Supreme and Langs Select 12-year-old – contain a high malt content, with around 25 different Highland and Speyside malts and grain whiskies combined. Even since its early days in the 19th century Langs has featured whisky from Speyside’s Glengoyne distillery at its heart, earning it a reputation as ‘the Glengoyne blend’.

Langs first appeared some time after 1861 when Lang Brothers was established by Alexander and Gavin Lang in Glasgow as a rum importer, whisky merchant and blender. The purchase of Burnfoot distillery in Stirlingshire in 1876 (later renamed Glengoyne) took the brothers into distilling and the Langs blend thereafter was built around the Speyside malt.

Over the years Langs became an established brand with a big following in the West of Scotland, and Lang Brothers eventually merged with Robertson & Baxter in 1965.

The Lang brand was granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen Mother in 1984, and in 1996 Robertson & Baxter was brought into The Edrington Group.

In 2003 Edrington sold Glengoyne distillery and the Langs brand to Ian Macleod & Company, which was renamed Ian Macleod Distillers in the same year.

Glengoyne 40 Year Old
October, 2009
Ian Macleod Distillers has unveiled a 40-year-old expression of its Glengoyne scotch whisky, which is expected to retail at approximately £3,000

Ian MacLeod Distillers has introduced a Glengoyne 40 Year Old, which will be formally unveiled at the Tax Free World Association exhibition in Cannes next week.

The scotch comes in a hand blown Glencairn crystal decanter and is housed in a solid oak, 11-times lacquered, presentation box lined with hand sewn cream colured leather. There are 250 bottles and they are expected to retail in the UK for £3,750 and approximately £3,000 in travel retail.

Marketing director, Iain Weir, has allocated 50 (75cl bottles) for the US market and expects about 50 to go through the travel retail channel.

Unlike the traditional Glengoyne range the 40 Year Old is quite dark in hue and has a strength of 45.9% abv. The whisky was distilled in November 1968.

The company has also introduced a 12 Year Old variant to fit in between the 10 and 21-year-olds. It will retail for around £40. Unlike the rest of the Glengoyne range where sherry butts, predominately first fill, are used, this will also have 18% aged in bourbon casks as part of the blend. Also significantly darker in colour than the rest of the traditional range, the rest of the 12 Year Old blend comprises 70% refilled sherry casks and 12% first fill sherry butts.

Glengoyne Relaunch Celebrates Unhurried Approach to Whisky Making
9th September 2020

Today, Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky launches a brand-new look and feel across its award-winning range. Taking inspiration from the distillery’s unhurried and uncompromising approach to whisky-making, the exciting overhaul also sees The Glengoyne Collection move to 100% recyclable and locally sourced packaging.

Glengoyne Range

The new identity, featuring an updated illustration of its namesake goose, and packaging will roll out this month across the Collection, as well as special releases such as Legacy Series: Chapter Two and Cask Strength Batch No. 008, which both launch globally this month. Older expressions will be unveiled later this year.

As Scotland’s slowest distilled malt, unhurried since 1833, the new packaging features subtle design cues inspired by the distillery’s unique connection to time, which helps create its gloriously sweet, fruity spirit.

As part of the distillery’s long-standing commitment to sustainability and the future, The Glengoyne Collection also becomes fully recyclable, free of plastic and magnets, and locally sourced, with nearly all of the material originating from Scotland.

Katy Muggeridge, Senior Brand Manager for Glengoyne, said: “Glengoyne has always chosen to take its time to do things the right way - for every minute other whiskies spend in their stills, ours spends three, all in the name of outstanding fruity flavour. This is the Glengoyne way and it’s why the same appreciation of time has gone into this rebrand. As one of Scotland’s greenest distilleries, it was extremely important to us that our commitment to sustainability was reflected in the new packaging, as well as giving us a platform to better connect our customers to the unique processes and people behind our award-winning whisky.”

To celebrate this new chapter in the distillery’s story, Glengoyne has worked with renowned conceptual artist and experimental philosopher, Jonathon Keats, on a one-of-kind literary art project set to challenge the way consumers themselves engage with time.

Jonathon’s ground-breaking art pieces, which feature poems from some of the most celebrated young poets around the world including Cat Hepburn and Jeda Pearl (Scotland), Courtney Peppernell (Australia), Alison Malee (America) and Martin Reints (Holland). won’t be immediately available for people to view.

Instead, going against the grain of today’s instant culture, each poem will appear in its own time – unhurried – thanks to an innovative and one-of-a-kind printing technique, which fades away as it is exposed to ultraviolet light.

Creating a greater appreciation of time and craft, each of the poems will hang in the Glengoyne distillery for consumers to visit, with a first layer of ink slowly fading away, in time, to reveal the poems underneath. A version of each poem will also be exhibited in the home countries of the poets from October, including at renowned whisky bars, The Brandy Library (New York), The Ubiquitous Chip (Glasgow), J.D. Williams (Amsterdam), as well as Michelin-starred restaurant City Social (London) - creating a truly one-of-a-kind global exhibition.

“As everything becomes instantaneous, delivered next day, our appreciation of craft and time is diminishing.” Adds Katy Muggeridge. “Glengoyne distillery has always valued the role time can play and its importance to our whisky making. That’s why for this special rebrand, we wanted to bring this idea of unhurried into a different world. These special pieces of literary art will appear when they are ready, likely anytime over the next two to fifty years depending on their exposure to UV light, encouraging a different interaction with the work and a greater appreciation of its craft.”

Also launching with the rebrand, Chapter Two in the Legacy Series heroes the story of Glengoyne’s owners, the Russell Family, and their own relationship to time and tradition when experimenting with different maturation styles. The global release is the result of maturation in two distinct types of casks – first-fill bourbon casks and refill sherry casks.

Wetlands Single Cask Release

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Wetlands Single Cask Release. Matured exclusively for ten years in a first-fill, European sherry hogshead cask, this fine and rare single malt commemorates the ten years since we first created and launched our distillery wetlands and our long standing partnership with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.

Priced at £120, this exceptional Glengoyne whisky boasts notes of dark brown sugar, red apples, warm spices, treacle, and dried fruits, followed by a soft oak finish.

Part proceeds from the sale of the Wetlands 10 Year Old Single Cask will go towards helping the WWT create more wetland areas across the UK and the support required to sustain ongoing projects and preserve wetlands which are so integral for the geese in our glen and beyond.

This weekend the Distillery Shop launched the much anticipated Teapot Dram, Batch No. 008. We are now thrilled to announce the eighth release in the coveted *Teapot Dram series, Batch No. 008 is now available for you, our Glengoyne Family, to purchase exclusively online at for 48 hrs. It will then officially be available online from 8th December.

With high demand and a limited number of bottles available for the Teapot Dram, we have limited purchasing to two bottles per person.
The daily dram
Most distilleries gave their teams new-make spirit as their daily dram, but not Glengoyne. Instead, the finest whisky from first-fill Oloroso sherry casks was chosen for the distillery workers. The less seasoned stillmen would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams back into the copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues. These stories inspired the creation of this unique dram and pay tribute to this old tradition.

This strictly limited release is priced at £120, matured exclusively in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks, un-chilled-filtered and bottled at 59% ABV.

The Teapot Dram, Batch No. 008, bursts with stewed red apples, dark chocolate and ginger on the nose, giving away to rich and sweet warming spices, sherry and soft oak on the palate. The finish continues with soft oak and spice and drying pleasantly with a hint of pepper and crisp citrus notes.

Teatpot Dram Batch No. 008
Teapot Dram Batch No. 008 Live Tasting
Join us on Wednesday 20th January at 7pm GMT. We'll be broadcasting live from the Distillery Warehouse No. 1 across Glengoyne Facebook and YouTube pages for a live tasting of the Teapot Dram Batch No. 008.

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.

Simply perfect - Slàinte mhath.
I sampled Glengoyne's 12-year old whisky for the first time while staying at Balamaha on Loch Lomond in Sept '21. It was a cracking dram and since the distillery wasn't far away, I paid a visit the next morning to pick up a bottle. With Christmas just around the corner, my thoughts turned to Glengoyne again, this time as a present for a whisky fan who'd sampled a dram of mine and liked it. The service from Glengoyne was excellent - from the point of ordering to keeping me updated with delivery information. I'll definitely be doing more business with them in the future - my bottle of the 12-year old is getting dangerously low.

Teapot Dram No. 008
Thank you for your overwhelming support on this release.

In December, we launched one of Glengoyne's favourite tipples - the Teapot Dram Batch 008, which sold out online within a couple of days. We are thrilled to announce further bottles are now available to purchase exclusively from our online shop.

With high demand and a limited number of bottles available for the Teapot Dram, we have limited purchasing to two bottles per person. Please note delivery can take up to 4-5 working days

This award winning limited release is now available to purchase on our, the Glengoyne Distillery, and specialist retailers
Batch No. 010 is bottled at the strength it emerges from the cask, almost like opening the cask yourself.
Maturation in a combination of American and European oak, comprising First-Fill Oloroso Sherry, Bourbon, and Refill Casks results in a rich, indulgent and fruity whisky that truly brings the Glengoyne signature style to life.

On the nose, Batch No. 10 provides fresh, crisp apple with juicy blackberries and pink peppercorn topped with toasted almonds and a sprinkling of dried coconut. To taste, decadent, vanilla custard slices, touches of crème brulee and baked pears with lemon peel and hints of sherry oak. To finish, the latest cask strength has a long, lingering end with honey and refreshing citrus.

Batch No. 010 has an ABV of 59.2% and delivers an undiluted and uninterrupted dram typical our Highland distillers’ signature style.
