Dial A Dram Glen Moray 2020 Distillery Edition Range

18th August 2020
Glen Moray has made their normally distillery exclusive single cask bottlings available to whisky fans via a Dial A Dram service.

Glen Moray 2020 Distillery Edition Range

One of the advantages of visiting a whisky distillery is that many of them offer visitors the chance to purchase distillery exclusive bottling's during their visit, these specially selected bottling's are usually something quite different from the normal core range and more often than not quite outstanding examples of what the distillery can produce.

The Glen Moray distillery in Speyside is no different, they would usually offer their visitors a chance to buy a Glen Moray Distillery Edition bottling during their visit, a distillery exclusive bottling which wouldn't normally be available to purchase from whisky shops or online. The team at Glen Moray appreciates that due to the ongoing effects of lockdown some of you may not be able to make the trip to the distillery so they have made not one, but three, Glen Moray single cask bottling's available to whisky fans which can be purchased by calling the distillery if you are unable to visit.

The trio of Glen Moray single cask malt whiskies are the oldest wine-finished whiskies the distillery has ever released, each one said to be bursting with the flavours of full maturation in hand-selected Chardonnay, Burgundy and Chenin Blanc casks respectively.

To ensure whisky fans don’t miss out, Glen Moray are also offering personal phone consultations over peak visitor season in July and August, where four members of their team – all with a serious passion for whisky – will guide callers through the range, make recommendations, answer questions and take orders in person.

Brand Ambassador and Distillery Visitor Centre Manager Iain Allan is leading the effort alongside Hannah Levy (Assistant Manager), Ieva Hancock (Visitor Centre Assistant) and Laurie-May Macdonald (Café Supervisor). Iain came up with the idea as a contrast to all the virtual, online whisky events that have been taking place during lockdown, and as a way to deliver a personal touch during the buying process. He commented:

"Buying a bottle of Glen Moray from our annual Distillery Edition is as much about the experience of a visit to the Distillery as it is about buying a wonderful new whisky. For the many people who would normally make the trip and take away one of these special bottles, we wanted to find a way to make the range available but avoid making it just a basic transaction over email or the internet. Everyone working at the Distillery enjoys nothing more than talking about whisky with fellow enthusiasts, answering questions and sharing behind the scenes stories of how Glen Moray is made. So if you can’t make the visit in person this year, please just pick up the phone and dial our distillery team."

The three expressions in the 2020 Distillery Edition range have been fully matured in ex-wine casks for between 16 and 17 years, after being laid down between 2003 and 2004 in the Distillery’s Warehouse 1 – home to Glen Moray’s curious casks and maturation experiments. All three expressions have been bottled as they come from the cask, at cask strength, non-chill filtered and with naturally coloured.

If you want to know my thoughts on the three Glen Moray 2020 Distillery Edition bottling's follow the links below and if you want to get hold of any of the bottles the distillery has recently partially re-opened to visitors, their distillery shop and coffee shop are open and their tasting flights are available, their tours are not running and you should note that you should call first to pre-book a visit. Opening hours is currently only winter opening hours Monday to Friday 9am till 5pm.

If you are unable to go to Glen Moray and you want to get hold of one of the new single cask bottles take advantage of their Dial A Dram service and give them a call on +44 (01343) 550900

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