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 germinated with water sourced from the Tarlogie Spring. The water sourced from the spring, which spends nearly a century underground before it is extracted, is unusually rich in minerals. (In the 1980s, when development in the area threatened the spring's water quality, the distillery purchased 600 acres of land around and including the spring, in order to ensure consistent water quality and adequate supply.) After germination, the grains are mashed and fermented before being twice distilled through Glenmorangie's copper-pot stills. The stills are equipped with relatively small boiler pots, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the copper, resulting in a more pure flavor. Also, the stills are nearly seventeen feet tall — the tallest of any distillery in Scotland — and as a result, produce a lighter, more refined whisky. The ninth annual release in Glenmorangie’s critically acclaimed Private Edition series, Glenmorangie Spìos is the first in the Glenmorangie range ever to be fully matured in ex-American rye whiskey casks. This whisky’s full-bodied character is inspired by America’s golden era of whiskey, when rye dominated the country’s most prominent saloons. Glenmorangie Spìos (pronounced ‘spee-oss’) is Scots Gaelic for ‘spice.’ This whisky has and a compelling flavor profile with unique rye’s notes of cinnamon and clove A uniquely smooth Highland single malt whisky with sophistication and subtle spice.
