Background: The exquisite purity of single malt Scotch whisky produced by the Glenmorangie distillery is testament to a tradition that dates back to 1843. On the south side of the Dornoch Firth, The Sixteen Men of Tain follow the mystical art of turning barley and water into this famously complex and alluring whisky. The original spirit is finessed for eighteen years in oak casks, gilding the fruity floral delicacy for which Glenmorangie is renowned with soft and luscious flavours of vanilla and coconut. This gentle process of maturation takes place in stone-built, earth-floored warehouses to ensure time-honoured perfection.
