Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky has unveiled the latest edition to its popular Teapot Dram series - Batch No. 007.

There will only be 3,993 bottles of the 7th Glengoyne Teapot Dram, which are exclusively from the Glengoyne Distillery shop and online.

The limited-edition whisky has been matured in only 10 first fill European Oak Oloroso sherry casks in the dunnage warehouses of Glengoyne.

With no other whisky in the brand’s portfolio matured in this way, Teapot Dram Batch No. 007 (ABV of 59.9%) is sure to be one of Glengoyne’s most sought-after expressions.

The brand describe the whisky as: “rich copper in colour and boasts initial swathes of red apples, demerara sugar and chocolate-enrobed Turkish delight, which give way to a tangy Seville marmalade, cinnamon, cloves and rich, dark cocoa. It has an exceptionally long finish and a burst of crystallised sugar sweetness at the end.”

Katy Muggeridge, Senior Brand Manager at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be unveiling the latest batch in our ever-popular Glengoyne Teapot Dram series, just in time for the festive season.

“Each batch has its own incomparable character, having been carefully and patiently nurtured and selected at its prime, and Batch No. 007 is no exception. Luscious and mouth-coating, it may even be our best batch yet and certainly one which we know our fans will be raving over.”

What is the Teapot Dram series?

The Teapot Dram series has been created in tribute to an old Glengoyne Distillery tradition where, until the 1970s, workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day.

At Glengoyne, whisky from first fill Oloroso sherry casks was chosen for the distillery workers’ drams and the less seasoned stillmen would often discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot, which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues to enjoy later.

Teapot Dram Batch No. 007 will be available from Wednesday 27th November with an RRP of £120. More info here.
