The Glenrothes is an award winning Speyside Single Malt and a pioneer in the whisky industry. All our Single Malt is Vintage Whisky. And when we say Vintage, we don't just mean aged; we mean whisky distilled in a particular year that has reached its peak of maturity, character and flavour.
Delving deep into our distillery's history, we chanced upon an early association with the Islay Distillery Co, struck back in 1887. This provided the stimulus for a new expression, one that reflects a delightfully serendipitous result.
We selected whisky from the Vintage 1992 to give a temporary home in a cask hailing from the peaty lands of Islay. This was allowed just the right amount of time to add a kiss of peat smoke, complementing, but not overpowering its exquisite character. It is a first for our distillery, but going by the taste, it may not be the last.
