GlenDronach unveils first travel retail-exclusive whisky
Highland Scotch whisky brand GlenDronach has released its first travel retail-exclusive expression – The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years.
Bottled at 43% abv, The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is non-chill-filtered and aims to celebrate the “rich heritage and terroir of the Forgue valley”, where founder James Allardice built the distillery in 1826.
With notes of Morello cherries, ripe barley, tobacco and ground nutmeg, the single malt is available in global travel retail at an RRP of US$77.
Rachel Barrie, master blender, said: “The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is a richly Sherried single malt with an unashamedly Highland character.
“Matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and oloroso Sherry casks, the result is a cornucopia of bramble fruit and oak, combined with notes of harvest-ripe barley, as found in Forgue’s rich and fertile landscape.”
Earlier this month, GlenDronach relaunched The GlenDronach Revival, a 15-year-old single malt Scotch matured in Sherry casks.
GlenDronach is part of The BenRiach Distillery Company, which was acquired by Brown-Forman for £281 million (US$405m) in June 2016.
