Glenglassaugh whisky launches Manager's Legacy

Published:  28 October, 2010

Glenglassaugh Distillery has launched a new Manager's Legacy range  of single cask malt Scotch whiskies.

Between 1962-1986 the distillery had four managers ? Walter Grant, Bert Forsyth, Jim Cryle and Dod Cameron and a cask from each of their periods in charge has been carefully selected.

Stuart Nickerson, managing director, said: "The Manager's Legacy range is the first range of whiskies that recognises the contribution of the managers who produced the original spirit that was filled into cask at the start of maturation.

"With each release being an individual cask filling they are all limited edition with the number of bottles per cask varying between 200 and 500 dependent upon the cask selected. Each bottle in each release is individually numbered."

The first release in the range, celebrating the contribution of Jim Cryle, had 200 bottles available of which only a handful remain unsold. The second release in the range, the "Dod Cameron" bottling will be available from early November and the final two releases will be available in early 2011.

The Jim Cryle release has an rrp £250 per 700 ml bottle, Dod Cameron is £130 for a 500 bottle release, Bert Forsyth is £350 for a 300 bottle release and Walter Grant is £450 for the 200 bottle release.
