Fresh green apples, toffee and a hint of nuttiness. This is the taste of distilling slower than anyone else in Scotland, of barley dried by air not peat, and of hand-selected sherry casks crafted from European and American oak.

The painting ‘Heavy Snow at Glengoyne Distillery’ by John Lowrie Morrison, also known as Jolomo, now features as the winter edition gift tin for the Glengoyne 10 Year Old. A donation from each tin sold will be contributed, by Glengoyne, to The Mackintosh Campus Appeal to help The Glasgow School of Art recover following the tragic 2014 fire in the Mackintosh building.

Each limited edition tin contains a bottle of the Glengoyne 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt and a print of the painting.

The whisky is Golden yellow in colour, clear and bright.  On the nose, sweet, with toffee and popcorn aromas. Slightly nutty, with fresh green apples coming through.  On the palate, clean, green apples and grass, soft oak and a hint of sweet liquorice. Water brings linseed oil and almonds.

Glengoyne Distillery is a whisky distillery continuously in operation since its founding in 1833 at Dumgoyne, north of Glasgow, Scotland. Glengoyne is unique in producing Highland single malt whisky matured in the Lowlands. Located upon the Highland Line, the division between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, Glengoyne’s stills are in the Highlands while maturing casks of whisky rest across the road in the Lowlands. Unlike many malt whisky distilleries today, Glengoyne does not use peat smoke to dry their barley, but instead uses warm air.

In the early 19th century, due to the heavy taxes on spirit production imposed by the government, many whisky producers were forced to operate illegally. The area around Glengoyne was full of hills and forests which provided excellent cover for the distillers. Although Glengoyne only officially existed from 1833 and no records exist from before this date, it is believed that distilling on the site pre-dates that with a local historian writing that the smoke of "illicit stills" was visible in the area in the early 19th century.

Originally known as the Burnfoot distillery, it was originally owned by George Connell who built the distillery and took out a lease on the surrounding land, on which was built a warehouse which is still in use today. Its name was later changed to Glengoyne which comes from 'Glenguin' or 'Glen of the Wild Geese'.

In 1984 the Lang Brothers became suppliers of whiskies to the then Queen Mother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's household. The Royal Warrant has since been delegated to Ian Macleod and is featured on all Glengoyne products.
