Glengoyne concludes Legacy Series

by Alice Brooker

Scotch brand Glengoyne has completed its Legacy Series with a third whisky that celebrates Sir Arthur John Tedder.

Chapter Three of the Glengoyne Legacy Series was created in honour of Tedder, an excise officer at the distillery said to have pioneered its ‘unhurried’ approach to whisky making. The series was created to tell the stories of the people who have contributed towards shaping the distillery over the last two centuries. Barbara Turing, Glengoyne brand manager, said: “As our Legacy Series unfolds, each chapter represents an important part of our bold and unique history and as the final chapter, this provides a unique opportunity for consumers to complete the set of this limited release. “Chapter Three is incredibly special and pays homage to Sir Tedder and the vital role he played in defining Glengoyne's commitment to unhurried excellence. Glengoyne Distillery is known for its dedication to craft and time, one which has led us to becoming an award winning Scotch whisky, and we owe so much to Sir Tedder for that.” Bottled at 48% ABV, the liquid boasts notes of creamy vanilla, spicy cinnamon aromas and flavours of mixed berries, apple strudel and pears. The non-chill-filtered bottling also delivers a light and fruity finish, which deepens with hints of pineapple, dried fruits, dark chocolate and lingering spice. The 700ml bottle of Legacy Chapter Three is available globally, as well as through the distillery shop and website, for RRP £69.99 (US$86.31). The brand recently featured on our top marketing moves round-up, after it donated 100 unique bottles to an annual charity dinner for auction. All proceeds raised from the auction went towards motor neurone disease foundation My Name’s Doddie.
