Glenmorangie Single Malt Whisky: The Glenmorangie Story



The Unnecessarily Well Made Single Malt Whisky!


Watch out for another unnecessarily well thrown party by Glenmorangie and be prepared to be wowed by the showcase of the Soundform Fluid Bar, designed by Philip Michael Wolfson, whose brilliant creativity has transformed the sound of whisky being poured into a glass into this breathtaking sculptural pop-up bar for Glenmorangie.

Before we enjoy the single malt whisky, let’s take a trip to discover the Glenmorangie Single Malt Whisky!







What is Glenmorangie Single Malt Whisky?

Glenmorangie is arguably the most delicious and complex single malt whisky in the world. Its multi-layered aromas and kaleidoscopic flavours stimulate the senses and entice the palate.  Much effort goes into producing the single malt whisky and it all started with The Glenmorangie Original, the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. The ten-year old Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.As purveyors of perfection in single malt whisky, Glenmorangie takes pride in going to great lengths to ensure the quality of Glenmorangie whisky; to ascertain that Glenmorangie whisky is “Unnecessarily Well Made”.

How “Unnecessarily Well Made” is Glenmorangie?


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. It’s no wonder that they are labeled the “Unnecessarily Well Made” Single Malt Whisky!







Glenmorangie casks are only ever used twice to ensure the optimal amount of flavour is extracted into the whisky.







While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies made in shorter stills, the Glenmorangie Distillery utilizes swan-necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland.

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. An impressive scientific calculation to obtain the best of the whisky!

The superiority of the ingredients are local spring water from its own Tarlogie spring and locally grown Scottish barley, combined with the skill of the craftsmen who follow the same, time honoured approach that the company has used throughout its long history, result in a smooth spirit of distinction.
