    Glenglassaugh Relaunch

    Stewart Buchanan
    Saturday - 13:30-14:30

    Glenglassaugh was established in 1875 in the small town of Portsoy, Banffshire, just at the coast. The site was originally chosen due to its proximity to a clean and pure water supply (Glassaugh Springs), easy access to the nearby barley fields and because it was known locally to have been the site of one of the many illicit distilleries. Glenglassaugh was mothballed between 1986 and 2008. In June 2023, Glenglassaugh released a historic milestone with the launch of a new portfolio. The release of a flagship 12 Year Old Single Malt, which embodies Glenglassaugh’s signature coastal style heralds this turning point. The overall artistic direction has also evolved, taking inspiration from rippling sand tide at Sandend Bay, with touches of colour inspired by sea glass.

    Shaped by the influences of land and sea, the reimagined portfolio and design encapsulate the ethos of the lush, vibrant coastal spirit. As with all Glenglassaugh single malts, the new whisky has been gently matured in the distillery’s coastal warehouses overlooking the rolling surf of Sandend Bay.

    Stewart Buchanan will talk you through the new range but will also showcase some old products.
