While some whiskies take a lifetime to mature, this supple dram is ready in its early teens. The nose is rich and enticing, with spicy vanilla notes and the quintessential flavors of citrus, baking spice and sherry. Leading into a smooth and lingering vanilla caramel finish, this malt mastery graduated early and is ready for life in the wild! It’s a stellar value and we’ve got fewer than 20 cases to go around!

The Glenrothes is an award winning Speyside Single Malt Whisky of exceptional quality. A combination of many factors including our unusually slow distillation process in tall copper pot stills deliver our characteristic sweet, fruity and elegant spirit. Further flavours are derived from our extensive knowledge of maturation in oak casks. Each expression has its own unique personality, underpinned by the distinctive, hallmark characteristics of the distillery - ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and an exquisite spicy finish all encased in the creamiest of textures and with a complex and well-poised balance. The Glenrothes Distillery lies on a tributary of the river Spey in Scotland. Speyside is universally acknowledged as the heartland of single malt whisky distillation. The small Speyside town of Rothes is rather coy about what it does best. The only clue, if you drive down the narrow High Street with the window open, is the faint, sweet scent of distillation in the air. Rothes has been making malt whisky since 1840 and though most is used in blends, it could if it wished produce enough to fill 50 million bottles of single malt each year. At dusk you get a better idea of scale when great clouds of steam can be seen billowing up from the town's five distilleries of Speyburn, Glan Grant, Glen Spey, Caperdonich and, of course, Glenrothes. Among them, tucked away in a tree-lined gorge beside the Rothes burn, is the one that proudly bears the town's name; Glenrothes - built in1878 and arguably the best kept secret on Speyside, The Glenrothes has been distilled here since 1879.
