All three bottlings, which have been matured in a selection of different wine casks, will be available to buy via a special ‘distillery dial-in’ service.
|Glen Moray launches three new Distillery Edition bottlings|
Glen Moray Chardonnay Cask 2003 (58.9% ABV), Glen Moray Burgundy Cask 2004 (60.1% ABV) and Glen Moray Chenin Blanc Cask 2004 (60.3% ABV), have been fully matured in their respective wine casks for between 16 and 17 years.
The Distillery Editions are usually reserved exclusively for distillery visitors and aren’t sold in shops or online. But whilst Glen Moray has reopened its visitors centre, the team is aware that the ongoing effects of lockdown mean some may not be able to make the trip.
To ensure whisky fans don’t miss out, Glen Moray will be offering a ‘distillery dial-in’ service, providing personal phone consultations over the peak visitor season in July and August, for fans who can’t visit the brands Elgin home in person.
Commenting on the news, Iain Allen, Glen Moray Brand Ambassador and Distillery Visitor Centre Manager, said: “Buying a bottle of Glen Moray from our annual Distillery Edition is as much about the experience of a visit to the Distillery as it is about buying a wonderful new whisky. For the many people who would normally make the trip and take away one of these special bottles, we wanted to find a way to make the range available but avoid making it just a basic transaction over email or the internet. Everyone working at the distillery enjoys nothing more than talking about whisky with fellow enthusiasts, answering questions and sharing behind the scenes stories of how Glen Moray is made. So if you can’t make the visit in person this year, please just pick up the phone and dial our distillery team.”
Glen Moray Chardonnay Cask 2003, Glen Moray Burgundy Cask 2004 and Glen Moray Chenin Blanc Cask 2004, are now available directly from the distillery, by calling 01343 550900, for a RRP of £85.00 each.
