Unveiling the story of Glenmonrangie.

Glenmorangie's "Unnecessarily Well Made".

With multi-layered aromas and kaleidoscopic flavours which it stimulates the senses and entice the palate, Glenmorangie is arguably the most delicious and complex single malt whisky in the world.


The Glenmorangie distillery lies in the far north of Scotland, in the Royal Burgh of Tain, Ross-shire.


Single malt whisky obtains its flavour from the wooden casks used in maturation. Many of of them are made from white oaks grown on the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, USA.
Glenmorangie casks are only ever used twice, to ensure the optimal amount of flavour is extracted into the whisky.


The casks will then be stored in low stone-built buildings with earthen floors, permeated by fresh sea-air, a gentle local climate ensuring a steady path to full maturity. Over 100 years and seasoned naturally in the open air for two years to preserve their porous texture - a quality that adds the spirit's intriguing depth

While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies made in shorter stills, the Glenmorangie Distillery utilizes swan-necked stills that are the tallest in Scotland at sixteen feet, ten and one quarter (5.14m) high.


The height means that only the lightest and purest vapours are able to ascend to the top and condense into spirit, contributing to Glenmorangie's distinctive and layered flavour.

The superiority of the ingredients - local spring water from its own Tarlogie spring and locally grown Scottish barley, combined with the skill of the craftsmen who follow the same, time honoured approach that the company has used throughout its long history, result in a smooth spirit of distinction.
