Whisky fans’ dream is for Cho­sen few

The Herald Business - - News -

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.”
