Glenmorangie 10 Year Old from 1990s in Handcrafts of Scotland Gift Tin Box "Selecting the Spirit" (70cl, 40%)
This is a 1990s bottling of best-selling classic Glenmorangie 10 Year Old single malt with a rare gift tin box depicting the selecting of the spirit at the distillery in Tain among other handcraft workers.
Proof that you don't fix what isn't broken, the label barely changed for nearly four decades before being rebranded as The Original in the relaunch of the core range in 2007.
Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. Some records show that its single malt was being sold as early as the late 19th century. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's tallest stills, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers. Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.
