Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 006

21st November 2018
Glengoyne release the 6th batch of their popular big sherried cask strength Teapot Dram.

Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 006Its that time of year once again, Glengoyne has just announced the release of the Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 6, the sixth release in this highly rated and very popular series of big sherried cask strength drams from the Highland distillery.

To date the Glengoyne Teapot Dram has been an outstanding limited edition release, so fingers crossed this latest release will be of the same high quality. Matured in first fill Oloroso sherry oak casks, Glengoyne tell me that Batch 6 has a natural, rich amber hue and notes of cinnamon, marzipan and cloves.

Bottled un-chill filtered at a cask strength of 59.3% ABV, there will only be 2772 bottles of this big sherried dram available and as always the Teapot Dram will only be available from the Glengoyne distillery which is located just 14 miles north of Glasgow not far from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs or if you have no plans to visit the distillery you can buy a bottle from the Glengoyne web site, priced £90.

As I am sure those of you who have already had the pleasure of previous releases will know there is a great story behind how the Glengoyne Teapot Dram came about, it was created in tribute to an old Glengoyne Distillery tradition which stood until the 1970s, which saw the distillery dram the workers every day. The Glengoyne distillery workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day. Most distilleries gave their teams new make spirit, but not Glengoyne. At Glengoyne, the finest whisky from first fill Oloroso sherry casks was chosen for the distillery workers’ drams. The less seasoned stillmen would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues.

As I said above the Glengoyne Teapot Dram Batch No. 6 will only be available direct from the distillery shop or via the Glengoyne web site, you will also find the current Glengoyne whisky range as well as a few limited releases available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, Amazon and Master of Malt
