A break from tradition
Today we’re delighted to introduce you to the latest addition to our family, Glen Garioch Virgin Oak. For the very first time we’re releasing a Glen Garioch that has been fully matured in virgin North American oak casks and is unlike anything you’ve tasted before.
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 our more refined and complex whiskies.
Well, think again!
