Glenmorangie was founded in 1843, pursuing perfection in the art of whisky creation ever since.
With the tallest stills, the most advanced approach to extra maturation and a commitment to only ever using our casks twice, you could say we're striving for one thing – An Unnecessarily Well Made Whisky. We've always realized that pursuing perfection is rather a long journey. We just know it's a trip worth making.
At 5.14 meters (16ft 10 1/4 inches) our stills are the tallest in Scotland. Not to mention the same height as a fully grown adult giraffe! Which means that only the very lightest and purest vapours make it to the top of their long copper necks, giving a smoother, purer and more elegant whisky.
At Glenmorangie we select the finest oak casks in which to mature our whisky. But that's not all, because we then only use each one twice (whilst many others use theirs up to five or six times), ensuring that the maximum amount of flavour is always extracted during maturation, delivering a rounder, richer and smoother taste.
Having pioneered extra maturation over twenty years ago, our whisky creators continue to travel the world in their search for exceptional casks. Casks that will provide additional, intriguing layers of flavours to the original character of Glenmorangie.
