The Vintage Single Malt
The Glenrothes is bottled at its peak of maturity and flavour. rather than at a pre-determined age.
Distillation is unusually slow and takes place in tall stills, which delivers a sweet clear fruity spirit. Maturation is in American oak and Spanish oak casks which produce our award-winning Speyside single malt.
All of our malt is Vintage whisky, representing a single year or collection of years.
Our single Vintages, limited and rare, each capture a unique essence and flavour, never to be repeated.
Our Reserves give you the opportunity of enjoying a number of selected Vintages from different years – married together in perfect harmony.
Berry Bros & Rudd
Founded in 1698 at No.3 St Jame’s Street in London, Berry Bros & Rudd is probably the world’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.
As proprietors of The Glenrothes, it is Berry Bros & Rudd’s values of quality and integrity which determine the philosophy behind this well-bred Speyside single malt: Vintage whisky, like vintage wine, matured at its own pace.
Our long history has provided us with the understanding and the patience to ensure that we only offer expressions of The Glenrothes to our discerning customers at the moment when our experts deem them to be perfectly mature and ready to be savoured.
Character: Red fruits, butterscotch, citrus and spice
