When it comes to heritage, few brands will understand the importance of it
as well as Scotch whiskey brand Glenmorangie, who has just unveiled their
new state-of-the-art distillery in Scotland.
The Scotsman reports that the whiskey brand has opened its doors on their
innovative distillery on the same land that it all first began, and that
the brand has promised to develop a range of new and delicious flavours
while remaining true to its roots in the Scottish Highlands.
Named The Lighthouse, the stunning new building in Tain overlooks the
Dornoch Firth’s incredible coastline. Standing 20 metres high, the glass
building, designed by architects Barthélémy Griño, grants whisky creators
the space and ability to carefully control all aspects of the distillery
process, allowing them to create new taste profiles.
Featuring two signature Glenmorangie copper stills and a state-of-the-art
sensory laboratory, the new building provides everything the famed makers
need to develop their brand and reach new heights of taste experimentation.
Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden said, “Our Lighthouse is the
new home of imagination. Here, we can indulge our most fantastical ideas as
we strive to create a whole array of different flavours.
“We will be able to play with whisky’s core ingredients, making small
adjustments and big changes in ways never tried before. Nothing is
off-limits in the Lighthouse, as long as it’s delicious.”
In honour of the unveiling of the new distillery, Glenmorangie has released
a new limited-edition whisky, named Lighthouse, which is a silky
12-year-old single malt, full of the flavours of apricot and orange.
It is only available at the Distillery Visitor Centre, so bool a trip soon
to try it for yourself.
