The Teapot Dram series has been created in tribute to an old Glengoyne Distillery tradition: until the 1970s, workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day. Most distilleries gave their teams new make spirit, but not Glengoyne.
At Glengoyne, whisky from first fill Oloroso sherry casks was chosen for the distillery workers’ drams. The less seasoned stillmen would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues.
This 6th release in the Highlands based distillery’s now renowned Teapot Dram series, is said to deliver notes of fresh pineapple, digestive biscuits, rosehip, sherbet and rose petals on the nose. Followed by notes of sweet treacle, cinnamon, marzipan and cloves on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Katy Macanna, Brand Manager for Glengoyne, said: “The Teapot Dram is a firm favourite amongst Glengoyne fans, and we’re delighted to share the latest release in the series. We’re incredibly proud of our history here at Glengoyne, and that’s why we continue to craft our whisky in the same unhurried way as we have done for more than 185 years. Our team is a vital part of that history, and the Teapot Dram series helps to tell the story of one of our old and most treasured distillery traditions.”
Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 006, is now available direct from the distillery and via glengoyne.com for a RRP of £90.00.
