Glengoyne's tribute to the daily dram that the Distillery folk enjoyed three times each day from the copper teapot in the distillery canteen. Exclusive to the Distillery and presented at full warehouse strength, this is a unique vatting of 5 young 1st fill sherry casks.

Up until the early 1980s Glengoyne’s men were given three large drams of cask strength Glengoyne a day - breakfast, lunch and afternoon break.

Once a week the Brewer, Ron Low, and the excise men would select the best first fill sherry cask they could find to become that week’s dram. However, if the younger men didn’t want one of their drams they would pour it into the old copper teapot that sat in the rest room.

The more “seasoned” drinkers would then help themselves to additional drams from the teapot throughout the day – everyone was happy.
