Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX

The Glenmorangie Company pays tribute to its art of whisky creation with the launch of the Glenmorangie 'Private Collection' - a series of innovative whiskies for the true connoisseur. The launch revives the Company's popular tradition of limited edition releases. From now on, a 'whisky gem' will be released every year as part of the Glenmorangie Private Collection; Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX is the first expression in this series and is available now for a limited period of time.

Creating delicious, innovative and special whiskies is an integral part of Glenmorangie's history. Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden travels the world sourcing inspiration for Glenmorangie expressions, as well as different kinds of wood in which to mature the delicious Glenmorangie spirit, experimenting and creating new enticing whiskies.

Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX is a great reflection of The Glenmorangie Company's passion for innovation and exploration. Its name perfectly describes the beautifully absorbing, full-bodied and generous taste of this special single malt and is taken from the Gaelic translation of "generous" (Sonnalta) and PX (Pedro Ximenez) for the "PX" ex-sherry casks from Jerez in Southern Spain into which the whisky is transferred for extra maturation.

Dr Bill Lumsden comments: "Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX is an extraordinarily rich, dark and absorbing malt whisky. I regularly travel to Spain to select the very best PX casks to use alongside our outstanding bourbon barrels from the US. This is our first release in the Glenmorangie Private Collection, with more rare, delicious releases to come in the future."
