Glenmorangie is a Scottish single malt whisky
distilled in Fearn
, on the shores of the Dornoch Firth
. The first distillery
was built in 1820
, and licensed by the Matherson family in 1843
. They purchased second-hand stills from a London gin
distiller, and these add a unique quality to the finished product, as well as being smaller than the traditional whisky still. By 1980
there were four stills, growing to today's eight stills.
Glenmorangie produces a wide range of whiskies, from the 10 year-old Highland Single Malt Whisky, through to an 18 year-old. Many of these prime malts are matured in bourbon and then in port or sherry casks, producing both a mellow taste and fascinating nose to the spirit.
