Glenmorangie Distillery tour with Dr Bill Lumsden

21st August, 2017 by Annie Hayes

After 10 years’ ageing, some whisky is bottled and the remainder is re-filled for a second time – no barrel is ever used more than twice for any Glenmorangie expression. The remaining 10 Year Old whisky is either set aside for older age statement releases or re-racked into an Oloroso sherry butt, a ruby Port pipe, or a French oak sauterne barrique, where it is finished for around two years. This is how the brand’s Lasanta, Quita Ruban and Nectar D’Or variants were developed.
