Three new Scottish whiskies are now available at the Mumbai and Delhi Duty Free.
Scottish single malt whisky company, Glenmorangie, has launched three new whiskies exclusively for travel retail in Mumbai and Delhi Duty Free.
Glenmorangie’s whisky creators have dedicated themselves to crafting single malts since 1843. With these latest creations, Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks, pays homage to their expertise. Each whisky is distilled in Glenmorangie’s signature copper stills, the tallest in Scotland, for a fruity and fragrant spirit. And each reveals the distillery’s mastery of timeless techniques such as cask marrying and wood finishing. They include:
The Accord: A fruity and rich 12-year-old whisky marrying bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks. Says Lumsden: “With this whisky, I was inspired to explore the classic art of marrying casks. Selecting a smooth, fruity Glenmorangie aged in bourbon barrels, I carefully balanced it with a sweet, spicy whisky matured in Oloroso sherry butts. Named to reflect its perfect harmony of casks, The Accord brims with rich, fruit notes and our whisky’s signature finesse.” Cost: Rs 6,250.
The Elementa: A spicy and deep 14-year-old whisky finished in new charred oak casks.
“Glenmorangie was among the pioneers of wood finishing more than 30 years ago. Our Elementa celebrates this art, revealing the depths of flavour that a skillful finish can bring. Taking whisky aged in bourbon casks, I finished it in new charred oak casks for woody depth and warm spice. As its name suggests, this whisky’s taste deliciously reflects the natural influences of the new wood,” explains Lumsden. Cost: Rs 7,900.
The Tribute: A zesty and rounded 16-year-old whisky created from a heritage spirit batch.
“There was a time when peat was the main source of fuel at Glenmorangie, giving our spirit a noticeably smoky style. To celebrate our heritage, I distilled a rare, lightly peated spirit with a hint of smoke. Aged in bourbon casks and united with Glenmorangie’s signature spirit, our Tribute’s citrus smoothness and rounded flavours are a zesty nod to the past,” says Lumsden. Cost: Rs 9,000.
The three new expressions were made available at the Mumbai Duty Free on July 10th, and at the Delhi Duty Free on July 12th.
