Glenglassaugh to release a 51-year-old single malt whisky

But you’ll have to get in quick.

Whisky house Glenglassaugh is launching something akin to the likes of one of Willy Wonka’s Gold Tickets… only this time, it’s for adults.

In August, the brand will bring out its 51-year-old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. But you’ll have to get in quick, as only 10 bottles (RRP AU$9,000) will be available in Australia.

Distilled and filled to cask on February 15 1963, it is one of the oldest casks in their inventory and brilliantly captures Glenglassaugh’s unique highland coastal character.

Specially selected by previous Master Distiller, Billy Walker, the rich and flavoursome whisky is from 1963 cask 3301 and has been maturing in the Glenglassaugh coastal warehouses at Portsoy for over 51 years.

Bottled at cask strength, the dram is non-chilled filtered, natural colour and 41.7% alcohol volume (700ml).
