About Glenglassaugh 40 Year Old Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Eager to satisfy the growing demand for high-quality whisky from customers of his grocery store, James Moir established the Glenglassaugh Distillery in 1875. At the time, it was commonplace for store owners to distill or blend their own whisky (a store owner by the name of Johnnie Walker began blending whisky in the 1830s for his own customers). The location of Glenglassaugh Distillery — it is situated on the outskirts of Banffshire in the Highlands region of Scotland — was chosen because it offered ready access to an incredibly clean and pure water supply: Glassaugh Springs. In addition, the area is surrounded by fields of ripe, plump barley that are ideal for distillation.

For over a hundred years, the Glenglassaugh Distillery operated at its original site, producing single malt whiskies that were best known for their starring roles in renowned blended Scotch whiskies, including Cutty Sark and the Famous Grouse. In 1986, however, production at the distillery ceased, and would not be restarted until 2008, when new owners took over Glenglassaugh. While the distillery is again producing new whisky, the new owners discovered they had purchased quite a bit more than the famous distillery itself: the purchase also included a cache of some 400 casks of aging Glenglassaugh Single Malt whisky, each more than twenty years old.

Their core range, therefore, consists of young as well as some extremely old whiskies. This Glenglassaugh expression is a 40-year-old whisky, meaning it was distilled before the period when the distillery was closed. Selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker, it's a rich and rare Highland single malt with tropical fruit and sherry notes. The expression is bottled at 85 proof without chill filtration and coloring, letting its complex character shine in its full glory.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
