Glenmorangie unveils private edition at the new Savoy

Published:  11 February, 2011

The Glenmorangie Company has unveiled the European release of a century-old recipe at the newly-reopened Savoy Hotel.

The Glenmorangie Finealta, Scottish for 'elegant,' is a recreation of a 1900s Glenmorangie recipe - at the time when it was served in the American Bar of the Savoy.

Recently uncovered in the distillery's archives it is the latest addition to the Private Edition range.

Dr Bill Lumsden, head of distilling and whisky creation, said: "We decided to recreate this recipe so that whisky connoisseurs, could have a taste of this historic Glenmorangie expression which dates back to sometime in the early 1900s.

"We followed the recipe as closely as we could, which included marrying whiskies of different ages and from different cask types. The final result is a whisky of such depth and distinction that we selected it as the second release in Glenmorangie's exclusive Private Edition range."

Daniel Baernreuther, manager of the American Bar at The Savoy, said: "We are very excited with the creation of Glenmorangie Finealta, which was first enjoyed by The Savoy's guests at the turn of the 20th century. The introduction coincides with The Savoy's recent re-opening and will allow our new guests to experience this special Glenmorangie expression.

Glenmorangie Finealta is available in 70cl bottles at £65.99 from selected specialist retailers.
