Glenmorangie Tùsail Private Edition Single Malt Whisky

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.

Tùsail was the sixth release from Glenmorangie Private Edition range. The malt used in this release is Maris Otter, an extremely popular brewing malt which is known for its rich, rustic malty flavours. The name Tùsail, is Scots Gaelic for 'originary' (an archaic form of 'originating').
