Glenturret NAS whisky range marks 240 yearsBy Amy Hopkins
Glenturret Distillery is celebrating its 240th anniversary with the launch of a no-age-statement range of Scotch whiskies, marking the brand’s continued foray into the single malt sector.
The range consists of: The Glenturret Sherry Edition, The Glenturret Triple Wood Edition and The Glenturret Peated Edition.
The Glenturret Sherry Edition, which has been aged in both Spanish and American oak Sherry seasoned casks, is said to have a flavour of “puff candy, aromatic sandalwood and sweet spices”.
Meanwhile, The Glenturret Triple Wood has been matured in American sherry oak, European sherry oak and American bourbon oak casks, creating a flavour of “cedarwood, cinnamon coated marzipan and coconut”.
Finally, The Glenturret Peated Edition is created using malted barley that has been dried over peat fires and has “sweet, smoky flavour with slight salty notes”.
Our new core range draws on the very best of our traditional, artisan production methods but focuses on profiling the taste of the malt, not simply its age,” said Stuart Cassells, Glenturret Distillery manager.
“A traditional Scottish product, The Glenturret only require five pairs of hands to produce it and these exceptional malts are a testimony to the range of traditional distilling skills that Glenturret has worked hard to preserve.”
While Glenturret largely produces whisky to be included in The Famous Grouse blend, the brand has released a number of single malt bottlings over the past few months.
In May this year, the distillery unveiled a “rare” single cask 28-year-old variant, which sold out internationally within weeks of its launch.
