Glenmorangie The Tribute 16 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Glenmorangie 16 Year Old The Tribute 1 Litre
Crafting single malt whisky since 1843, when farmer William Matheson and his wife Anne followed their dreams and founded the Glenmorangie Distillery. Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's smallest stills, coupled with their pioneering use of wood finishing, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers.
Glenmorangie The Tribute 16 Year Old was aged in bourbon casks. It is a lightly peated release exploring the distillery’s past, paying tribute to the historic use of a peat fired kiln. This bottling was originally released for the Travel Retail Market.
