Whisky fans’ dream is for Chosen few
WHISKY aficionados worldwide have been given the chance for the first time to vote on the packaging design of a new single malt. The initiative is part of Glenmorangie’s Cask Masters whisky creation programme. Launched on March 1 this year, it will run for 18 months with the new Limited Edition Glenmorangie whisky ready for release in the autumn of 2014.
The whisky, extra-matured in Manzanilla sherry casks, had already been selected when three casks of whisky were put to a public vote earlier this year. Whisky fans have also selected the name Taghta (Tuh-ta), Gaelic for Chosen, after thousands of suggestions were whittled down to three names translated by Dr Aonghas MacCoinnich and put to an online vote.
Cask Masters is the brainchild of Glenmorangie’s Dr Bill Lumsden, Director of Distilling & Whisky Creation, who said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for fans of Glenmorangie to really help create a new single malt whisky and the plans for its launch.”
