Whisky Focus - Glengoyne Asks Fans To Select Next Single Cask Bottling

Glengoyne Asks Fans To Select Next Single Cask Bottling

10th August 2020
Glengoyne invites whisky fans to sample four single cask whiskies to select their next ‘Casks Unlocked’ single cask bottling.

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is giving its whisky fans the opportunity to select the next single cask, single malt whisky which they will bottle. The distillery is inviting fans to take part in a special livestream on Friday 28th August - where they can not only sample some rare casks, but ultimately decide which go into the distillery’s latest ‘Cask of the Moment’ single cask bottling.

The unique event, affectionately named ‘Casks Unlocked’, will see Distillery Manager, Robbie Hughes, Global Brand Ambassador, Gordon Dundas, and a panel of key industry figures taste and discuss four single casks, which the distillery team hand-selected from Glengoyne’s Warehouse #8 – the four single casks include an 2004 vintage ex-bourbon barrel, a very rare 2005 vintage port pipe, a 2006 vintage re-fill hogshead and with only two casks maturing at the Glengoyne distillery, a unique 2007 vintage Madeira cask.

But in a twist sure to excite whisky fans the world over, Glengoyne is also bringing a personal touch to the event, by inviting their fans to help curate the new bottling. Tasting kits have been created to purchase ahead of the event, via the Glengoyne website, allowing consumers to take part in debating the drams from the comfort of their own homes.

After deciding on their favourite, the panel, viewers, and Glengoyne community will then be invited to cast a vote for their preferred cask – the winner of which will become Glengoyne’s latest ‘Cask of the Moment’. This cask will then get hand-bottled and will be available to purchase at the newly reopened distillery shop and online via the Glengoyne website.

Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne Distillery Manager, said: "At Glengoyne, we’re incredibly fortunate to have some of the most loyal fans in the whisky world. That’s why, to show our appreciation for their ongoing support, we decided to host ‘Casks Unlocked’ – a special opportunity for our community to select Glengoyne’s latest single cask whisky.

"Having helped to pick the four casks on offer, I’m truly excited to see and hear the reaction to these rare and unique drams. Some of the liquid in the sample kits may have never been released for sale, so this truly is a one-of-a-kind experience that we’re excited to offer our community."

Glengoyne ‘Casks Unlocked’ is taking place at 8pm on 28th August. Tasting kits can be purchased online from https://shop.glengoyne.com/cask-of-the-moment for £50.

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