Glenglassaugh

Glenglassaugh Revival

£49.95
An award-winning distillery, built in 1875, located on the beautiful Sandend Bay, is a nature lover and surfer’s paradise on the Moray coast of Scotland. The name Glenglassaugh means “Valley of the Grey-¬Green Place,” which refers to its lush coastal surroundings. The Glenglassaugh Distillery coat of arms, which features a design of gannets, stills and barley, is accompanied by the Latin phrase ‘Per Mare, Per Terras’, meaning “By land, By sea”. Not only does it reflect the surrounding coastal environment, it tells the story of how the whisky was historically transported to market, long before the distillery was built.

Glenglassaugh is the only distillery to straddle the Highland/Speyside border, with a coastal position, resulting in taste influence from three locations. The whisky matures in our beach side warehouses exposed to the North Sea air, which lends it intriguing salty notes; a Highland malt with seductive coastal charm. Despite being mothballed for over twenty years, the distillery has a history of proven maturation, with award winning old vintages dating back to the 1960s, whilst the recognized younger whiskies are bottled at higher strength. As this jewel of coastal malt is discovered and enjoyed, it promises to become a cult, contemporary classic.

Revival is the first expression released from Glenglassaugh distillery after it was mothballed for a period of more than 20 years. The Glenglassaugh Revival has been matured in a balanced and unusual mix of American bourbon cask, red wine European oak casks, and undergoes a final maturation in sherry casks. Revival is a medium to full bodied Highland single malt, with a seductive coastal charm. Natural colour and bottled at 92º proof.
