Winning bid: £85.00
Lot number: 090-2636

The Glenglassaugh Distillery was mothballed from 1986 until 2008. The very first cask, a refill butt, that was filled on that “first cask filling day in 2008” was emptied and refilled into 2 smaller casks on the 16th December 2010. These smaller casks were a first fill ex-Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry hogshead and a first-fill ex-Palo Cortado sherry hogshead. On the 16th September 2011 the whiskies were returned from these two casks into the original butt and are now marrying for a period of exactly three months.

On the 16th December 2011 the cask was emptied and approximately 650 bottles were filled with the whisky, at cask strength, at natural colour and with no chill-filtration, by the employees of Glenglassaugh. The very first bottling of Glenglassaugh Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled since the distillery's re-opening in 2008.
