Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled the latest batch of its Teapot Dram – Batch No. 009, its most popular limited-edition range.
The Teapot Dram tells the story of an old distillery tradition where workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times a day. While most distilleries would give workers new-make spirits, hot off the stills, Glengoyne would always ensure the team were given tumblers filled with whisky from first-fill sherry casks.
The less-seasoned members of the distillery team would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues to enjoy later.
Honouring this tradition, Glengoyne say that the Teapot Dram has remained a deliberately bold, sherry matured limited release ever since its launch. Batch No. 9 is matured exclusively in first fill European and American oak sherry casks and bottled at 58.9% ABV.
Limited to only 3,000 bottles, it is available from today (22nd May) via the Glengoyne website and distillery shop.
Katy Muggeridge, Brand Director at Ian Macleod Distillers, said, “We’re so pleased to share the latest Teapot Dram, Batch No. 009.”
“We know the range continues to grow in popularity, and it is always such an exciting time at the distillery when our latest dram is unveiled. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Glengoyne Distillery on our new Teapot Tour to try this indulgent and decadent whisky.”
