Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is inviting fans to decide which rare casks go into the distillery’s latest ‘Cask of the Moment’ bottling during a livestream called ‘Casks Unlocked’ on Friday 28th August at 8pm.
Tasting kits have been created to purchase ahead of the event, via the Glengoyne website, allowing consumers to take part in debating the drams from home.
Distillery Manager, Robbie Hughes, Global Brand Ambassador, Gordon Dundas, and a panel of key industry figures taste and discuss four single casks, which the distillery team hand-selected from Glengoyne’s Warehouse #8 – including a port pipe, hogshead, bourbon barrel, and madeira cask.
After deciding on their favourite, the panel, viewers, and Glengoyne community will then be invited to cast a vote for their preferred cask – the winner of which will become Glengoyne’s latest ‘Cask of the Moment’. This cask will then be hand-bottled.
Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne Distillery Manager, said, “Having helped to pick the four casks on offer, I’m truly excited to see and hear the reaction to these rare and unique drams. Some of the liquid in the sample kits may have never been released for sale, so this truly is a one-of-a-kind experience that we’re excited to offer our community.”
Tasting kits can be purchased online from https://shop.glengoyne.com/cask-of-the-moment for £50.
