    Glenmorangie Allta Private Edition No.10

    Glenmoranige Allta Private Edition No.10

    Glenmorangie distillery was founded in 1843, by William Matheson in the Scottish Highlands. Inspired by the peaceful surroundings on the banks of the Dornoch Firth, he set about creating a wonderfully complex and smooth single malt whisky.

    To this day, Glenmorangie's single malts are acclaimed for thier smoothness, richness and complexity. Distilled in Scotland's tallest stills — their long copper necks are the height of an adult male giraffe — allowing only the finest vapours to rise, Glenmorangie's spirit is then matured in bespoke designer casks, created to exacting specifications from American oak grown in the mountains of Missouri.

    Glenmorangie Allta marks the 10th anniversary of Glenmorangie's award-winning Private Edition seires and is the distillery's first single malt to be created with yeast discovered growing wild on its own barley.

    Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks, Dr Bill Lumsden was inspired to create Glenmorangie Allta (Scots Gaelic for 'wild') while gathering samples of Cadboll barley from fields near the distillery. Discovering a previously unidentified species of wild yeast, he decided to bring the two together in this innovative whisky, using the yeast to carry out fermentation on the barley.

    Glenmorangie Allta reveals the importance of yeast to the myriad of flavours found in Scotch whisky and opens up compelling possibilities for the future of single malt.
