Situated adjacent to the Burn of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland, The Glenrothes Distillery was founded by in 1879 by James Stuart, who had previously been employed at The Macallan Distillery. The distillery's history is marred by tragedy — in 1897, construction workers who were attempting to expand its capacity started a fire that consumed much of the distillery's equipment and infrastructure.

Twenty-five years later, a fire in the distillery's original warehouse caused the loss of 200,000 gallons of maturing whisky. Despite having lost ten copper-pot stills in various accidents since its founding, the Glenrothes Distillery is now a picture tranquility.

An early association with the Islay Distillery Co in 1887 serves as the motivation behind this new expression, inspired by serendipity, crafted by experts. This Glenrothes selection is a marriage of whiskies from a Vintage 1992, matured it in a peated whisky cask “hailing from the peaty lands of Islay.”

This whisky is aged to perfection, giving it just the right amount of peat smoke, just a hint that complements, but does not overpower the exquisite character of the vintage. Glenrothes Peated Cask Reserve was launched in the US in April 2016 as the newest addition to the Speyside distillery's Reserve Collection. With its light and subtly peated character, it received a Gold medal at the 2016 Scotch Whisky Masters. Expect elevated flavors of new leather, subtle peat, nutmeg, and crisp, dry white wine.
