We've always realised that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. We just know it's a trip worth making.
Our stills are the tallest in Scotland. Their long copper necks stand at 5.14 metres (16ft 10 1/4 inches), the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe! Which means that only the very lightest and purest vapours make it to the top, giving a smoother, more elegant whisky.
At Glenmorangie we select the finest oak casks in which to mature our whisky. But that's not all, because we then only use each one twice (whilst many others use their up to five or six times), ensuring that the maximum amount of flavour is always extracted during maturation, delivering a rounder, smoother taste.
Having pioneered extra maturation over 20 years ago, our whisky creators continue to travel the world in their search for exceptional casks. Casks that will provide additional, intriguing layers of flavours to the original character of Glenmorangie.
