Bottled at the strength it emerges from the cask, this delicious amber gold dram is un-chillfiltered, unfussed and untamed; the closest you’ll get to opening the cask yourself. A peppery tingle gives way to rich flavours of ripe banana, digestive biscuits and cinnamon.
Matured in one third sherry casks, two thirds refill casks and a smattering of bourbon barrels. Big and bold with a gloriously thick mouthfeel and a delightful, lingering, oak-infused finish.
Enticingly malty with apple pie, peach, vanilla, nutmeg and white chocolate.
Thick rounded mouthfeel, buttery toffee popcorn, banana, soft oak and fruit.
Long with summer fruits, digestive biscuit and kiwi.
29% First-Fill Sherry casks. 16% First Fill Bourbon barrels. 55% Hand-selected quality Oak Refill casks.
We are proud of the progress we have made on our sustainability journey.
We were the first distillery to adopt a wetlands facility to manage 100% of the liquid waste we don’t need. The liquid makes its way through a series of twelve pools; each is thick with reed beds. This slows down the flow and removes anything that would harm the delicate balance of the local burn.
The water is then safe to rejoin the burn, which winds its way into the river and on to Loch Lomond. Less waste. Less energy. More wildlife.
The wetlands cut our waste by around 25% – and because the process uses gravity, it only takes a 1.5KW pump to send the spent lees on their way. What’s left of the solid waste is then harvested sustainably for enough energy to power 354 homes each year.
Eleven Years on from the introduction of the Glengoyne Wetlands and biodiversity is alive and well at the Glengoyne Distillery. Our wetlands are made up of 12 individual cells which are home to 14,500 plants of 20 varieties and today provide a haven for local wildlife.
Like the geese, we also harness the power of the wind to help us reach our destination by sourcing 100% of our electricity from turbines, and from 2022, from solar energy too.
So, with every sip of Glengoyne, we continue our journey as we raise our glass to a greener and more sustainable future.
