    DESCRIPTION
    Although American Bourbon Whiskey must, by law, be matured in unused, virgin oak casks, Scottish distillers have always favoured used, so-called 'ex-bourbon' barrels, believing that the oak in its virgin state would be too overpowering for the more refined and complex whiskies.
    Well, think again! The very first release of Glen Garioch fully matured in virgin North American white oak casks is unlike anything you have ever tasted.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR
    The Glen Garioch distillery, which originally incorporated a brewery as well, stands on the very edge of the town, with a narrow lane connecting it to the main road between Aberdeen and Banff. The Manson brothers who founded it came from farming stock, and were respected members of the local community. Other members of the family were merchants and tanners, and an uncle had been a vintner in Oldmeldrum. In 1837, the year before co-founder John Manson died, they were joined by his son, also named John Manson (1804-1877). He took over the business, and as well as operating the distillery, opened a snuff mill, maintained the family's interest in tanning and acquired farms in the neighbourhood. He finished life as a landowner, with the proud title 'Laird of Fingask', derived from his main farm, and married Elizabeth Blaikie, a cousin of the explorer, David Livingstone.
