Glenmorangie Finealta recreates old recipe


The Glenmorangie Company has unveiled a modern classic with the European release of Glenmorangie Finealta. Finealta, Scottish for ‘elegant,’ is a recreation of a 1900s Glenmorangie recipe that was uncovered in the distillery’s archives and is the latest addition to the Private Edition range.

The whisky has distinctive vanilla and citrus notes and hints of mandarin, lime and breakfast marmalade on toast. However, the final touch is a hint of peat that originates from when the distillery dried its malted barley in a peat-fired kiln.

A special Finealta cocktail has also been created for the event called ‘Smoke and Mirrors’, which features the Glenmorangie Finealta whisky being ‘smoked’ in a decanter in front of the customer.

Glenmorangie Finealta is available in 70cl bottles at £65.99 from selected specialist retailers.
