Glenmorangie exists as a distillery since 1843. In addition, it existed when William Matheson bought a licence to make whisky. The brewery located near the Tarlogie Springs in Ross-shire in the highlands of Scotland.
Perfection in Mind
We’ve always realised that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. However, we just know it’s a trip worth making.
The Tallest Stills
Our stills are the tallest in Scotland. They are 8 metres high (26ft 1/4 inches) with their long copper necks standing at 5.14 metres (16ft 10 1/4 inches), the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe! Which means that only the very lightest and purest vapours make it to the top, giving a smoother, more elegant whisky.
We Only Use Our Casks Twice
At Glenmorangie we select the finest oak casks in which to mature our whisky. But that’s not all, because we then only use each one twice for Original (whilst many others use their up to five or six times), ensuring that the maximum amount of flavour is always extracted during maturation, delivering a rounder, smoother taste.
Pioneers In Extra Maturation
Having pioneered extra maturation nearly 30 years ago, our whisky creators continue to travel the world in their search for exceptional casks. Casks that will provide additional, intriguing layers of flavours to the original character of Glenmorangie.
