Located in a magnificent setting, at the eastern end of the magnificent Sandend Bay (Aberdeenshire) in the Highlands in Scotland, The Glenglassaugh distillery was founded in 1875 by Colonel James Moir.


Closed in 1986, it was successfully relaunched in 2008, after having been forgotten for more than two decades.


Whisky shaped by land and sea


Glenglassaugh is pronounced "Glenglassa" means "valley of gray-green place" in reference to its exceptional environment. Through the window of the stills room, you can see the sea which gives this salty character to this coastal whisky.


The distillery was built on the exact border between Speyside and Highland. Whiskies have long been classified from one region or another by whisky lovers. In the end, it doesn't matter, Glenglassaugh's production captures and sublimates with talent the tropical sweetness of Speyside, the richness and depth of the Highlands as well as the marine character of Sandend Bay. A unique whisky.


A claimed heritage


The operation of the distillery is based on its ancient know-how and remains voluntarily traditional. Water comes from underground sources, barley is cultivated in the Eastern Highlands before being malted to precise specifications by Portgordon 15 km from the distillery. All operations are controlled manually, without the aid of a computer.


The Glenglassaugh coat of arms is decorated with gannets, stills and barley. The Latin phrase "Per Mare, Per Terras" means "by land, by sea" is also included.


This coat of arms represents the important link between the distillery, the sea and reflects the coastal environment. It also tells how the whisky was put on the market long before the distillery was built. Originally the distillery was the site of a trafficker where illicit distillation took place.


An exceptional rebirth


Since 2008, the distillery has imposed itself with a real renaissance, celebrated by the launch of Glenglassaugh Revival, a very beautiful Single Malt having benefited from a finish in Xérès Oloroso cask and many other whiskies ...


The influences of Glenglassaugh’s environment manage to create a real complexity that is fully felt in the explosive tasting of whisky in the mouth with a long and dry finish.
