Glengoyne is inviting fans to sample some rare casks and decide which will go into the distillery's latest ‘Cask of the Moment’ single cask bottling.

Taking place on 28 August and titled Casks Unlocked, the interactive event 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 – including a port pipe, hogshead, bourbon barrel, and Madeira cask.

To bring a personal touch to the event, Glengoyne is inviting their fans to help curate the new bottling.

How will it work?

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 and viewers will be invited to cast a vote for their preferred cask – the winner of which will become the latest Glengoyne Cask of the Moment single cask bottling.

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.”
