Glengoyne Teapot Dram - Batch No. 007

The Teapot Dram series, was inspired by the long-gone tradition of the daily distillery whisky ration. Until the 1970s, workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day. Most distilleries would give their teams new make spirit, but Glengoyne would use whisky from first fill Oloroso sherry casks.

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.

Commenting on the launch, Katy Muggeridge, Senior Brand Manager at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be unveiling our latest batch in our ever-popular Teapot Dram series, just in time for the festive season. Each batch has its own imitable character, having been carefully and patiently nurtured, and Batch No. 007 is no exception. Not shaken or stirred but matured to perfection. Luscious and mouth coating, it’s arguably the best batch yet and one which we know our consumers will savour.”

Limited to 3,993 bottles, Glengoyne Teapot Dram - Batch No. 007, is now available directly from the distillery and via the Glengoyne online store, for a RRP of £120.00.
