The Glenmorangie distillery is located in the beautiful Scottish Highlands and is famous for its outstanding single malt whiskies. Glenmorangie, derived from the Gaelic language of Scotland, translates to "Valley of Tranquillity." A true testament to craftsmanship and tradition, Glenmorangie has been captivating whisky enthusiasts around the world for centuries. The story of Glenmorangie begins with its founder, William Matheson, who established the distillery in 1843. Situated near the tranquil Dornoch Firth, the distillery benefits from the region's pristine water source and the gentle sea breezes that caress the aging casks. These natural elements play a vital role in shaping the character of Glenmorangie whiskies, adding a touch of Highland magic to every bottle. One of the hallmarks of Glenmorangie is its commitment to the art of cask maturation. The distillery boasts the tallest copper pot stills in Scotland, which allow for a purer and more refined spirit. This, combined with the use of the finest American white oak barrels, results in whiskies that are smooth, complex and full of character. Glenmorangie takes pride in its dedication to innovation constantly pushing the boundaries of whisky production. The distillery is known for its "Extra Matured" range, where whiskies are finished in a variety of cask types, such as sherry, port and wine, to create unique flavour profiles. This experimentation has garnered Glenmorangie a loyal following of whisky connoisseurs who appreciate the diversity and complexity of their offerings. One of Glenmorangie's most iconic expressions is the Glenmorangie Original, a flagship whisky that embodies the essence of the distillery. For those seeking a more indulgent experience, Glenmorangie offers a range of limited edition releases and prestigious expressions. From the award-winning Glenmorangie Signet, with its rich chocolate and coffee flavors, to the rare Glenmorangie Pride 1978, aged for 41 years and exuding elegance and opulence, these whiskies are a testament to the distillery's unwavering commitment to excellence. Beyond crafting exceptional whiskies, Glenmorangie is deeply rooted in its commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. The distillery is dedicated to minimizing its carbon footprint and protecting the natural resources that make their whiskies so special. From the use of renewable energy sources to the restoration of local wetlands, Glenmorangie strives to ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy their whiskies while preserving the beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
Selecting American white oak from their very own forests in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, and then seasoning it in the very best bourbon the industry has to offer, Glenmorangie use these first fill casks with some of their most impressive whisky from Bond House No.1 and deliver it in a spectacular wooden-copper presentation box and stunning decanter bottle.
With a rare depth and minerality bestowed by its uniquely long finish in Bual Madeira casks, Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1993 is the third release in the exclusive Vintage Collection, Bond House No. 1.
The nose is fruity and subtly smoky, with hints of candied orange peel and wood fires. Then mint toffee, sultanas and a suggestion of vine-ripened tomatoes, give way to a rare minerality and Glenmorangie’s classic fruit notes. A rich, spicy mouthfeel brings tastes of ripe peaches, apricots, melon and baked pears, laced with vanilla custard, cocoa powder and nutmeg’s gentle spice. The finish is sweet and lingering, with notes of honey and mead entwined with milk chocolate and sugared plums.
