Established in 1843, Glenmorangie is the best selling single malt in Scotland and has been since 1983. Worldwide, Glenmorangie has a 6% market share.  In 2004 the distillery was bought by French firm Louis Vuitton-Moët Hennessy (LVMH) who also presently own Ardbeg on the Isle of Islay. 

Glenmorangie Bacalta

Posted 17 April 2017

Glenmorangie Bacalta is the 8th bottle in the Private Edition range of single malts. This one looks to me to be picking up where an older Glenmorangie - the discontinued Madeira Wood Finish - left off.  Bacalta started its life in ex-Bourbon casks, before being transferred into Malmsey Madeira casks for a finishing period.

Glenmorangie Signet

Posted 29 June 2017

Glenmorangie's 'signet' - their logo - is inspired by the lower panel of the 9th Century 'Hilton of Cadboll Stone' a pict cross-slab originally located on the east coast of Easter Ross. The signet section of the stone is believed to symbolise the Pictish belief in the interconnectivity of earth, fire and water. Glenmorangie’s 'Signet' whisky, released in 2011 is designed to highlight their take on the engraving – ‘refined complexity’.
