Glenmorangie has today announced the release of a new limited edition bottling that is said to reflect the infamous Scottish winters.

Glenmorangie ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dram’ (43% ABV) has been crafted by Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Whisky Distilling & Creation at Glenmorangie, using whiskies that have been matured in American white oak bourbon casks, and the same type of Oloroso sherry casks that are used in Glenmorangie’s award winning Lasanta expression.

Glenmorangie 'Midwinter Night's Dram' - UK Exclusive

Inspired by the long held tradition where The Sixteen Men of Tain were treated with a special whisky in the festive season created by the Master Distiller as a thank you for their role in the creation of Glenmorangie. This gift was shared by the Men of Tain with friends and family from St Andrew’s Day to Christmas to Burns Night.

To this day, these select craftsmen are entrusted with the secrets of the distillery. Their dedication, skill and attention to detail, passed from one generation to the next, remains integral in the creation of Glenmorangie.

Reflecting the infamous Scottish winter, Glenmorangie ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dram’, is said to deliver notes of orange marmalade, toffee, walnuts and mulled wine on the nose, followed by a rich warming, peppery texture leading into myriad flavours of chocolate orange, ginger, walnuts, praline, sweet butter candy and plump raisins.

Glenmorangie ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dram’ will be exclusively available in the UK, later this month for a RRP of £40.00.
