 Glenmorangie Distillery, Highlands


Glenmorangie is the best-selling malt whisky in Scotland and the distillery sits at the banks of the Dornoch Firth, near the village of Tain, Ross-shire. The setting is very much a little ‘glen of tranquillity’, as the translation from the Gaelic describes it. The staff comprises the ‘Sixteen Men of Tain’ who make the whisky and they are featured in the company’s advertising; all are local celebrities. Licensed activity began in 1843 with the conversion of a brewery by William Mathieson.

When the distillery was first set up, rather than go to the expense of buying new stills, the distillery manager purchased second-hand swan necked stills that had been used in a gin distillery. These stills are particularly high at 5.14 metres tall, the tallest in Scotland. The ‘boil pot’ each of them has – a bulge below the neck of the still which ensures that only the lightest, finest alcohols pass over in distillation. These unusual stills along with water from the Tarlogie Spring help to give Glenmorangie its unique flavour.

In the 1990s Glenmorangie started experimenting with different wood finishes for their whiskies. As well as the traditional use of casks that had been previously filled with Sherry, they also experimentd with casks from Port, Madeira and even one that had been previously used for Hermitage in the French town of the same name, Tain!

 

From the box: Here in the far north of Scotland, near the ancient Royan Burgh of Tain, lies Glenmorangie. 'The Glen of Tranquillity' where malt whisky has been distilled since before 1700. The distillery has an air of timelessness; the methods and craft we employ today differ little from those of our forbears.
We use the same fine barley, locally grown in Ross-shire and lightly peated during malting. Our water rises in the Tarlogie Springs close to the distillety, and having filtered throuth lime and sandstone for half a century, is unusually hard and rich in minerals.
Glenmorangie's elegant swan-neck still are the tallest in the Highlands, so only the lightest and purest of vapours can ascend and condense. And our whisky is matured for ten years in selected casks of American mountain oak which allow the natural flavour of Glenmorangie to fully develop. Our cast rest in low stone-built buildings with earthen floors, permeated by fresh sea-air, a gentle local climate ensuring a steady path to full maturity.
The result is a malt whisky of unique character and subtlety, elegang and delicately scented. We are proud og Glenmorangie and confident of the pleasure it will give you.
Danish news :
(Fra Børsen Weekend den 31.5.2002)
Skotsk whiskyfirma bryder sædvane.
Den uafhængige whiskyproducent Glenmorangie har som alle andre spiritusproducenter lidt under den afmatning på rejsemarkedet, som fulgte efter den 11. septemper, idet der kom færre kunder i lufthavnsbutikkerne og på hotellerne. Men alligevel har Glenmorangie forbedret sit overskud med 12 mio. kr. til 100 mio. kr., fordi den skotske whiskyproducent har handlet på lidet skotsk vis. I stedet for at spare, som skotter ellers har ry for at gøre, har folkene bag Glenmorangies maltwhisky nemlig investeret.
De har benyttet sig af, at magasiner og dagblade nedsatte annoncepriserne i håb om at kunne holde på annoncørerne, og Glenmorangie har derfor annonceret særlig kraftigt med det resultat, at salget sted 12 pct. trods det vigende marked.
I alt har destilleriet solgt maltwhisky for 750 mio. kr. sidste år. (2001 ed.)
