The giraffe has long been a beloved symbol of the Highland Distillery, perfectly illustrating the height of its stills, the tallest in Scotland. With necks as tall as an adult male giraffe, they take its whisky on a longer excursion, for a delicate spirit, with more ‘space’ for taste and aroma.
Glenmorangie has forged a global conservation partnership with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland to help protect the giraffe, which is under serious threat in the wild. Through this partnership, Glenmorangie aims to help support and protect this magnificent animal.
The darkest and most intense whisky in the extra-matured range, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas or wine estates of Portugal. Extra maturation in these port pipes develops Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban into a voluptuous spirit with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours and an intriguing contrast of smooth and crisp, cooling textures. Free from chill-filtration for additional aroma and mouthfeel.
