Glenmorangie have announced the launch of the Distillery’s new vintage collection, Bond House No. 1. This is marketed as an exclusive collection of limited releases which are said to explore the origins of Glenmorangie’s most prestigious reserves of aged whisky, each distilled in a single year.
This series is designed to showcase the individuality of the Distillery’s most complex and elegant vintage malts. Fittingly, the collection takes its name from the largest of Glenmorangie’s 19th century bonded warehouses. Warehouse No. 1 was home to the Distillery’s casks of maturing spirit. But in 1990, as Glenmorangie sought to meet growing demand, its role was to change entirely. Bonded warehouse No. 1 was transformed into a majestic new still house, home to Glenmorangie’s signature copper stills, renowned as the tallest in Scotland. Their stature ensures the vapours travel the long distance to the top, for a smoother, more elegant spirit. Today, Bonded Warehouse No. 1 is the heart of the Distillery’s whisky creation.
Glenmorangie Grand Vintage Malt 1990 is bottled at 43% ABV. Priced at £495 it is available from selected outlets.
