Nov 28, 2019by Melita Kiely

Highland Scotch whisky distillery Glengoyne has bottled a Sherry cask-matured single malt for the seventh batch of its Teapot Dram series.

Only 3,993 bottles of Glengoyne Teapot Dram No. 007 will be available to purchase exclusively from the Glengoyne Distillery shop and online. Bottled at 59.9% ABV, Teapot Dram Batch No. 007 is available now priced at £120 (US$155) per 700ml bottle. The whisky has been aged exclusively in 10 first-fill European oak oloroso Sherry casks. Tasting notes include red apples, demerara sugar, chocolate Turkish delight, Seville marmalade, cinnamon, cloves and dark cocoa. It is said to have a long finish with a burst of crystallised sugar sweetness on the finish. Kate Muggeridge, senior brand manager at Ian Macleod Distillers, which owns Glengoyne, 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.” The Teapot Dram series pays homage to Glengoyne pre-1970s, when workers would be treated to three drams a day from a “bashed copper teapot” in the distillery canteen. Newcomers who struggled to finish their whisky would pour their share into a copper teapot on the canteen windowsill for their more experienced colleagues to enjoy.
