Glencadam 13yo marks distillery ‘reawakening’

24th May, 2017 by Nicola Carruthers

Angus Dundee Distillers has launched a limited edition Glencadam 13-year-old single malt Scotch whisky, in celebration of the distillery’s reopening 13 years ago.

Just 6,000 bottles of Glencadam 13 Year Old are available

In 2000, the Glencadam distillery was shut down for three years, and was reopened in the autumn of 2003 by Angus Dundee Distillers. As such, the new bottling commemorates “the reawakening” of the distillery.

Bottled at 46% abv, Glencadam 13 Year Old has not been chill-filtered and no colouring has been added.

Each of the 6000 bottles produced are individually numbered.

“We are fortunate enough to be able to produce excellent malt at Glencadam and we are also blessed by being able to retain age statements on the vast majority of our releases,” said brand development director, Duncan Baldwin.

“The Re-Awakening 13 Year Old edition is characterised by its rich flavours of ripe fruit accompanied by smooth vanilla sweetness, resulting in a taste to meet the most discerning of whisky lovers preferences.”

The new bottling joins three variants in 2016: the 17-year-old Triple Cask Portwood Finish, the 19-year-old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish and the 25 Year Old.

Glencadam 13 Year Old is available now in western European markets, Asia and the US at an RRP of US$65.00.
