Brief updates on Glenrothes, Auchentoshan, Glen Garioch, and BowmoreJanuary 26th, 2010
These updates for the the U.S. market.
The new Glenrothes 1994 vintage, which is replacing the 1991 vintage, is now getting into distribution. The 1985 vintage will be relpaced by a 1988 vintage later this year.
The Glen Garioch 8, 15 and 21 year old whiskies are now gone. They’re being replaced by a 1797 Founder’s Reserve (NAS), 46% ( $45), and a 12 year old, 48% ($60). The whisky should roll out in about a month.
And for Bowmore Legend enthusiasts: stock up now! The price is going up.
Finally, I blogged about Auchentoshan beer here back in November. Auchentoshan installed a small brewery just to make beer for a festival at the distillery. Well, the’ll be making beer again at this year’s festival in August. But, the big news is that they plan on installing a full-time operating brewery at the distillery in 2011.
