First Glenglassaugh bottling by BenRiach

The BenRiach Distillery Company, which bought the Portsoy-based Glenglassaugh distillery in March this year, has released its first Glenglassaugh expression – a 30 year old single malt whisky.

The whisky is packaged in the same distinctive tear-shaped bottle engraved with the distillery logo as the Glenglassaugh 26 year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky. The glass bottle is produced by SaverGlass and the folding carton box by Chesapeake.

Back in March, BenRiach’s MD and Master Blender Billy Walker said: “It’s our intention to bring this distillery fully back to life by giving it the investment, commitment and care it deserves. I believe our whisky expertise, proven brand-building ability and strong routes to market will help take Glenglassaugh to the next level.”

The next level starts with this 44.8% abv Highland single malt and sales director Alistair Walker says: “We’re delighted to release our first Glenglassaugh expression five months after taking over the distillery.

"The 30YO is a great example of the unique Glenglassaugh character - complex fruit flavours, sherry overtones, spices and a lasting finish. It’s the first of a number of planned developments we have for our new brand which is in response to strong demand for Glenglassaugh in global markets.”
