In 1843, William Matheson founded the Glenmorangie Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the Distillery’s peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he brought forth a pioneering single malt whisky wonderfully complex and exceptionally smooth. Ever since, they have pursued their craft with uncompromising dedication – endlessly creative in our quest for perfection. To this day, they honour the Distillery’s provenance in the award-winning single malt. Its pure, smooth spirit is distilled in Scotland’s tallest stills, matured in the finest casks and perfected by The Men of Tain. And, in the hands of these select craftsmen, Glenmorangie will continue to delight malt whisky lovers for generations to come.
Glenmorangie Dornoch Firth Bridge Commemorative Bottling was bottled in 1991 at 40% abv to celebrate the opening of the Dornoch Bridge, by the Queen Mother, in August of that year. It cost £13.5 million to build and reduced the journey between Inverness and Tain by 26 miles. It was, at 890 metres, the longest bridge built using the the incremental launch method in the UK at this time. The Dornoch Bridge design was approved by the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland.
This is a commemorative 10 Year Old expression of Glenmorangie. A 10 Year Old single malt, this Glenmorangie was produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks. There are hints of vanilla on the tongue before it brings forth a flowery fruitiness.
