Glengoyne - Protecting our Environment


“While we respect the past, we also care about the future. Our liquid waste is cleansed in C02-capturing reed beds and our solid waste is harvested for enough energy to power 354 homes each year. ​

Just like the geese who visit our glen each winter, we harness the power of the wind to help us reach our destination by sourcing all our electricity from turbines. So, with every sip of Glengoyne we raise our glass to a greener future.”

Two years in the planning, the Glengoyne Collection has now moved to 100% recyclable and locally sourced packaging – this time was taken to ensure that they made positive steps forward in their sustainability journey!

Glengoyne 12 Year Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

We can’t think of a tastier dram that represents this ethos than
Glengoyne 12 year old, with its perfect balance of oak and sweetness!

 In the stillness of their quiet glen, Glengoyne know that patience is rewarded - for every minute other whiskies spend in their stills, Glengoyne spends three.  Only then is it transferred to casks, which have themselves been prepared for six years!

This is the Glengoyne Way, and this is the result; a perfect balance of rich intensity and citrus freshness: Toffee apples, ginger, shortbread and a delicate hint of spice, rounded off with a soft and smooth oak finish – delicious!

Cask Recipe:
20% 1st Fill European Oak Sherry
20% 1st Fill American Oak Bourbon
60% Hand-selected quality Oak Refill Casks.

Official Tasting notes:
Nose - Coconut oil, honey, lemon zest, dried oak.
Taste - Toffee apples, ginger, orange, shortbread
Finish - A hint of sherry, soft oak and cinnamon spice.
An incredibly well balanced whisky.
