Scotland's oldest distillery releases rare single cask malt

Published:  01 May, 2015

Perthshire distillery Glenturret has released a rare single cask malt whisky that will only be available online.

The distillery, which is the oldest working distillery in Scotland, is releasing 240 bottles of The Brock Malloy Edition #Cask328 from today.

Stuart Cassells, general manager of The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery said the The Glenturret single malt was a "hidden gem" in the whisky world and the new release was likely to be snapped up by enthusiasts.

"Cask 328 has always been known to be special and I'm delighted we are able to give whisky enthusiasts the opportunity to taste this rare and exceptional whisky," he said.

The whisky has been named after the two stillmen who filled and warehoused the whisky back in December 1986, Hugh Malloy and Chic Brock. Each of the 240 bottles are hand numbered & signed by the current distillery manager, Neil Cameron, and comes in a wooden gift frame made by a local carpenter.

Cameron, described the 28-year old malt as having walnut and orange notes, with a hint of jasmine on the nose, and spicy ginger and honeycomb on the palate.

"This has to be one of the best Glenturret malts I have ever tried," he said.

The distillery, which is owned by The Edrington Group, is the home of the drink's company's global whisky blend, The Famous Grouse and operates a visitor attraction that was opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last May. 

Last month is announced the The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery was the first business in Perthshire to be awarded WorldHost Recognised Business Status, a globally recognised customer service training programme.
