Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Whisky Distilling & Creation at Glenmorangie, has crafted a new limited edition single malt whisky, ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dram’.
Inspired by the long held tradition where The Sixteen Men of Tain were treated with a special whisky in the festive season created by the Master Distiller as a thank you for their role in the creation of Glenmorangie. This gift was shared by the Men of Tain with friends and family from St Andrew’s Day to Christmas to Burns Night.
To this day, these select craftsmen are entrusted with the secrets of the distillery. Their dedication, skill and attention to detail, passed from one generation to the next, remains integral in the creation of Glenmorangie.
Reflecting the infamous Scottish winter, a ‘Midwinter Night’s Dram’ unites whisky matured in the finest quality Bourbon casks made from American white oak, delivering Glenmorangie’s classic house-style which is smooth and soft with notes of citrus, vanilla and almonds. Complementing this elegant spirit is a fuller-bodied liquid, extra-matured in the very best Oloroso Sherry casks of the type most famously used in our award winning expression, Glenmorangie Lasanta. The marriage of these two malts creates a whisky which displays the balance between an underlying sweetness and a rich, spicy, nutty top-layer.
Priced at £40 and bottled at 43% ABV, Glenmorangie ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dram’, will be exclusively available in UK, in Sainsbury’s from 5th October, Ocado in November or at: www.glenmorangie.com/shop (personalisation is available online).
