About Glenmorangie Allta Private Edition No. 10 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This Private Edition Glenmorangie release celebrates ten years of the Private Edition series. Glenmorangie Allta – Scots Gaelic for "wild" — is the tenth expression in the collection, and the very first whisky to be created from a bespoke strain of wild yeast growing on local barley.

Yeast’s influence on the character of whisky has long been overlooked. Acclaimed whisky writer Michael Jackson believed Glenmorangie possessed unique "house" yeast. Having discovered a strain of wild yeast that had never been identified before, Glenmorangie created this expression with local Cadboll barley. The result is an exceptional spirit, noted for its aromatic character, matured in ex-bourbon barrels to highlight its fruity character and lend a rich creaminess to the whisky.

About Glenmorangie

In 1738, a brewery was built upon Morangie Farm in the Highlands region of Scotland. A century later, William Matheson acquired the farm and equipped the Morangie brewery with two stills that he purchased second-hand, and renamed the brewery-converted-distillery Glenmorangie.

Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using malted barley, which is mashed and fermented with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water produced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground being filtered through layers of limestone before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, Glenmorangie purchased 600 acres of land around and including the spring in order to ensure consistent water quality and adequate supply.

After the barley has been fermented, the wash is twice distilled through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills by a team of 16 distillers known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. Glenmorangie's stills are equipped with relatively small boiler pots, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the copper, resulting in a more pure flavor. In addition, the stills are nearly seventeen feet tall — the tallest of any distillery in Scotland — and as a result, produce a lighter, more refined whisky.

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.
