Time and wood work together over the next ten years – within the cool darkness of our traditional, earth-floored warehouses. Here, away from sight, the clear golden hue develops along with a sweet, malty finish, making Glengoyne 10 year old the perfect balance or traditional skills and barley dried by air, never peat.
All in Good Time
Patience: Our stills are Scotland’s slowest. Unhurried, our spirit benefits from the gentlest of journeys – developing the unique Glengoyne flavour.
Unpeated: We dry our barley by air, never peat. This unlocks the subtle, complex flavours of slow distillation and exquisite wood.
Natural Colour: This clean, golden hue of Glengoyne 10 year old comes from time and wood alone. Why would we add anything else?
Oak Casks: Hand-selected sherry casks – the home for all the spirit that will become Glengoyne 10 year old
Maturation: Fine casks need space to breathe. We stack them, just three high in the cool darkness of our stone-built warehouses.
Tradition: We’ve been learning our trade since 1833. Why change something that took generations to perfect?
Fresh green apples, toffee and a hint of nuttiness. This is the taste of distilling slower than anyone else in Scotland, of barley we dry by air – never peat – and of oak casks we select by hand. Just as we’ve always done.
