Rare Glengoyne 35 Year Old launched as collectors’ item
Ian Macleod Distillers has launched a rare “collectors’ item” 35-year-old crystal decanter of Glengoyne single malt Scotch, which carries a £2,850 price tag.
Just 500 hand-blown decanters of the rare whisky have been produced, which are engraved with old inlay and individually numbered.
Each decanter is presented in a solid oak lacquered box with a red leather interior, accompanied by an individually-numbered leather book.
The liquid itself has been ageing in Sherry casks in Glengoyne’s traditional dunnage warehouses.
Neil Boyd, director of malt whiskies for Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “The Glengoyne 35-year-old is an exceptionally rare whisky. Distilled in the 1970’s and 35 years in the making, this rich malt is golden in colour with tropical fruit intensity and a liquorice and dark chocolate finish.
“It’s truly outstanding and the beautifully designed packaging is in-keeping with the distinct, premium and stylish design of the enhanced Glengoyne brand collection, launched last year.”
Glengoyne 35 Year Old will be available in global markets from November.
