The exceptionally complex Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled on 20th March 1974 is one of the oldest and rarest expressions from the hidden Highland gem that is Glenglassaugh, which lay silent for over two decades before its reawakening in 2008.
Cask no. 1473 has been nurtured for 48 years in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask hand-selected by Master Blender Dr Rachel Barrie. Each bottle has been individually hand-numbered to reflect its rarity.
Inspired by the distillery’s coastal location on the white sandy beach of Sandend Bay on the Highland coast of Scotland, this Glenglassaugh 48yo is a whisky shaped by land and sea, presenting seductive notes of tropical and summer fruit on an ocean breeze.
“It’s impossible to separate Glenglassaugh the whisky from Glenglassaugh the place” said Master Blender Dr Rachel Barrie. “The lush sweetness of this coastal single malt is a complete distillation of its natural surroundings. Its whole essence is created by both the visible and invisible influences of land, sea, air and spring water.”
Each limited bottle has been individually hand-numbered to reflect its rarity and sealed with wax, housed in a custom wood box.
