What is Glenmorangie?
Glenmorangie is a single malt whisky from a distillery in the ‘Highlands’ of Scotland. It has a gorgeous aroma with a hint of fresh citrus and a perfect mix of sweet and sour flavors. The original distilled wine is aged in “Madira Wine” or “Sherry” barrels.
Glenmorangie is also a single malt whisky that is widely consumed in Scotland. It is popular with whisky beginners as it is more fruity than the inherent smokiness of Scotch whisky.
History of Glenmorangie
Glenmorangie was originally an old brewery built in 1738 and the “Glenmorangie Distillery” was established in 1843.
It was purchased second-hand in 1887 and became a highly accomplished whisky with an elegant sweetness and flavour.
Ever since then, Glenmorangie has been produced using pot stills of a similar design. It is now manufactured under the umbrella of Moët Hennessy, a company based in Cognac, France.
How Glenmorangie is made
Glenmorangie features a long necked pot still that is about 5.14m high. The key to this is the floral aroma of the alcohol-containing vapour as it passes through the long neck of the pot still.
The original wine is distilled and aged in oak and other wooden barrels, and then aged in barrels that used to store Madira wine and sherry. The distilled spirit is then transferred to fruity barrels for maturation, resulting in a single malt with a rich aroma.
Glenmorangie is distilled and matured using traditional techniques, and the flavours from the barrels coexist perfectly with each other, making it a highly complete single malt.
