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. 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 was surrounded by fields of ripe, plump barley that were 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. Glenglassaugh Revival is the breakout dram. Released fromGlenglassaugh distillery after being mothballed for more than 20 years, Revival is brought to age in a harmonious balance of ex-red wine and fresh bourbon casks. The Whisky is then vatted, and re-hacked for a second round of maturation, this time in sherry casks. Bottled at 46%, this stunning Highland single malt is non chill filtered, naturally colored, and brimming with coastal charm. Silver gold medalist 4 years running at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (2014-17), Glenglassaugh Revival has prominent notes of sweet caramel, sherry, citrus, and charred oak.
