One of the most recognisable names in Scotch whisky, Glenmorangie were quick out the gates to advertise and promote their Single Malt to a global audience as early as the 1960s. While this undoubtedly played a part in the rather sizeable market share they enjoy today, some credit has to be given to the whisky itself. Their famous stills stand as tall as a fully grown adult giraffe, and as well as giving them ultimate Top Trumps bragging rights, this has the benefit of producing a smoother and more delicate spirit.

Pioneers of cask finishes, the distillery has never shied away from experimentation, and under the guiding hand of Maestro Dr Bill Lumsden they continue to release a variety of expressions to keep "The Sixteen Men of Tain" rushed off their feet.

Warehouse No 3 is the oldest of the 19th century warehouses at the distillery in Tain and was used to mature the very first Glenmorangie single malt. It has sandstone walls, an earthen floor, a slated roof with solid oak beams and is the warehouse nearest to the coastline of the Dornoch Firth.

This location and the natural materials of the building create the perfect conditions for the developing whisky to breathe during its slow maturation over ten years in 'first fill' casks previously seasoned with bourbon.

40% ABV / 1L
