Glenturret: Scotlands oldest distillery launches new core range
- Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Melbourne, VIC
- Product code: PNTCS0
Join Miranda Lidgerwood and Ian McKinlay of Alba whisky in The Melbourne Whisky Room on August 4th, as we taste and talk everything The Glenturret, Scotland oldest operating distillery.
Revealed in 2020, but only just hitting Australian shores now, the refreshed Glenturret core range was created by The Macallan’s Bob Dalgarno, who joined The Glenturret as Whisky Maker last year.
In a quote to The Spirits Business, Dalgarno speaks on the range: “I saw Glenturret as a great opportunity to work alongside an understated yet highly skilled team who influence the creation of the distillery new make spirit as only their hands can. Alongside this was the challenge of creating a new range of whiskies with a different cask and character profile. Building on previous experiences and having the freedom to influence and develop, respecting the history whilst writing new chapters was a perfect fit.”
Ian Renwick, distillery manager at The Glenturret, said Dalgarno’s appointment was a “recognition of the scale of our ambition and a testament to our transformative work over the past eight months’’
Join us as we taste the old Glenturret 10 year old next to the new core range, plus a special single cask release, 'The Hosh' which we have pulled from the Whisky & Alement cellar to crack especially for this event.
