It's name may be a bit of a mouthful, but Glenglassaugh Distillery is convinced its new pink spirit will be coming up roses.

The 50% abv "The Spirit Drink that dare not speak its name" (try saying that after a couple) has been matured for six months in old Californian wine casks and is part of an experiment by the distillery, which re-opened six months ago after being closed for 22 years.

As the distillery was pleased with the results, it decided to release part of the stock as a pink spirit before waiting the full three years in order to class it as a whisky.

Managing director Stuart Nickerson said the results had exceeded expectations, with the spirit taking in a rich fruit nose and taste and dramatic rosy hue.
