Glenmorangie Announce Launch of Dornoch
Glenmorangie is proud to present its latest award winning expression Glenmorangie Dornoch which
will be available as a world exclusive to World Duty Free Group (WDFG) from 26th November for a two
month period, before being released to the wider travel retail sector.
Glenmorangie is Gaelic for 'The Glen of Tranquility’ and the Dornoch expression was inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful setting on the banks of the Dornoch Firth in the Scottish Highlands. The limited edition bottling will be exclusively available in WDFG’s specialist World of Whiskies stores and its World Duty Free stores, in all 21 UK airports in which it operates, including Heathrow and Gatwick.
Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation: “Glenmorangie Dornoch unites ex- bourbon American white oak barrels reflecting the distinctive vanilla and citrus Glenmorangie house style with a lightly peated Glenmorangie spirit that has been extra matured in ex-Amontillado sherry casks. The swirling under-current of peat adds an unexpected dimension of distant, smoky apples, complemented by vibrant, sweet nutty flavours layered upon the rich, warm toffee and dried fruits. These balance to create a single malt whisky that reflects the beautiful setting in which Glenmorangie is crafted.”
To protect the environmental importance of its provenance, Glenmorangie has formed a partnership with the Marine Conservation Society. A donation from each bottle of Glenmorangie Dornoch sold in the travel retail sector will be made to the Marine Conservation Society to help sustain and protect this beautiful estuary beside the Distillery for future generations, as well as helping to protect Scottish and UK seas more widely.
Calum Duncan, Programme Manager, Scotland for the Marine Conservation Society said: “This partnership reflects Glenmorangie’s commitment to helping to preserve the natural heritage around the distillery for future generations. We are thrilled to be working with them to raise awareness of the importance of our seas, shores and wildlife. In particular, the Dornoch Firth is a waterway of outstanding natural beauty and an internationally important special area of conservation.”
Dornoch has already been awarded a Gold medal in The Spirits Business 2014 Travel Retail Awards.
It will be exclusively available in all World Duty Free and World of Whiskies stores from Wednesday 26th November 2014 until 30th January 2015, RRP: £59.99 and will feature as ‘Malt of the Month during December on WDFG’s dedicated World of Whiskies website.
