Woolf Sung moves into bottling with 40yo single malt

by Amy Hopkins

Fine wine and spirits merchant Woolf Sung has launched the first expression in its inaugural range of independently bottled Scotch whiskies – a 40-year-old whisky from Glenglassaugh.

The Woolf Sung Collection is an ultra-premium range of single malt Scotch whiskies that have been aged for more than 25 years. The first release in the collection, The Hunter, was distilled at the Highland Glenglassaugh distillery in 1972 and bottled in 2013. Only 160 bottles of the whisky have been released. Each bottle has been hand-numbered and is presented in a black powder coated bank vault case. The Hunter will be released through selected retailers and directly from Woolf Sung at an RRP of £950 (US$1,253). Woolf Sung launched in 2012 as a fine wine and spirits merchant, but this latest collection marks the group’s move into independent spirits bottling.
