Glencadam is a rare Highland malt of a particularly mellow character, which is attributed to a unique feature of the distillery. The copper pot stills have pipes which run upwards rather than the normal downwards direction. The whisky in this decanter has been matured for 25 years, the first time Glencadam of this great age has been made available.


The decanter has been specially designed in Scotland for the Glencadam Distillery by Graphic Partners of Edinburgh. The design is inspired by the classical Georgian decanters used by gentlemen's clubs in the 18th century for serving whisky to their members.


The decanter has been produced by Nazeing Glass, one of England's foremost exponents of the crystal-making craft since the 17th century. The decanter and stopper are crafted in a special lead-free crystal, which is cut, ground and polished by hand using traditional methods.


Particularly rare is the opportunity to purchase Glencadam in this individually numbered presentation. A limited edition of only 1000 of these decanters have been made for worldwide availability. This 750ml decanter is numbered 116.
