23 Oct The Glenturret adds Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition to its range
The Glenturret Distillery has announced the hugely-anticipated release of The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition.
This highly collectable expression, which is available only from the distillery shop, is the first new bottling to be hand signed by the new Distillery Manager Ian Renwick.
The Peated Drummond is a cask strength single malt whisky with hints of dry almonds and fired oak. Priced at £145, and presented in a tweed gift bag, there are only 315 bottles available.
It is inspired by Glenturret’s historical connection with peated whisky when distillery founders John and Hugh Drummond forged an agreement around 1775 with neighbouring Ochtertyre estate to dig peat to fuel the fires to dry their barley for Glenturret.
The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition is the latest in a series of popular limited edition releases from Scotland’s oldest distillery.
John Laurie, General Manager at The Famous Grouse Experience based at Glenturret Distillery, commented:
“The Glenturret Cask 100 Peated Drummond Edition is another very special, limited edition single cask of the very finest Glenturret malt.
“Cask #100 is the first edition to feature 100% fully-peated Ruadh Maor Glenturret at a cask strength of 58.9%. It is a highly collectable single cask dram that’s well worth the price tag.
“Peated Drummond is now available for shop tastings and we plan to introduce it to our Finest Tasting Tray in the coming days.”
Appearance: Light, golden, clear and bright.
