Glengoyne 10 Years Old

Glengoyne 10Up to six years from oak forest to highland distillery. That is how long it takes before sherry casks are finally ready to receive our spirit. However, the journey has just begun.

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.
