The Glenrothes 13 Year Old Halloween Edition 2019

4th October 2019
The Glenrothes unveils a spooky 13 year old Halloween Edition single malt.

The Glenrothes 13 Year Old Halloween Edition 2019

Since its inception, The Glenrothes distillery in Rothes has shared its plot of land with the town's graveyard. Day and night, as life begins and ends, The Glenrothes continues to birth new make spirit and lay down whisky to mature in oak casks.

It is a historic fact that Scotland is actually the birthplace of Halloween and the ways we celebrate Halloween today are deeply rooted in ancient traditions and forgotten rituals that were forged in Scotland.

Ghosts and spirits are entwined with the long history of The Glenrothes: the distillery is situated on an ancient leyline, next to the Rothes graveyard, and has records of their very own hauntings telling the tale of Scotland’s forgotten Halloween, restoring the mystique and mystery to a deeply Scottish celebration.

This year they are marking Halloween at The Glenrothes distillery with the launch of The Glenrothes Halloween Edition 2019, a 13 Year Old (of course) limited release of 5,000 bottles, with a theme of ‘Ghosts and Guising’.

The Glenrothes Halloween Edition 2019 is a spooky secret for now. The limited edition launch will be available to buy from The Glenrothes website from 13th October 2019, the price also appears to be a spooky secret for now but I guess all will be revealed on the 13th October and no it is not a Friday, I checked.

You will also find the current Glenrothes whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

The Glenrothes has dropped me a line to let me know that even though The Glenrothes Halloween Edition 2019 sold out on the 13th October within 24 hours, due to the popularity and demand from whisky enthusiasts they will release 130 additional bottles on this coming Friday, 18th October from 9am BST at The Glenrothes website.

The 70cl bottle is available for shipment to selected regions and priced at £65 plus postage.
