Glengoyne unveils Teapot Dram Batch No. 008

Glengoyne’s most popular limited-edition range, the Teapot Dram, tells the story of an old distillery tradition where workers would be given three fingers of whisky, three times a day. Rather than just new-make spirit, Glengoyne would ensure the team were given tumblers filled with a young, first-fill sherry cask whisky.

The less seasoned members of the distillery team would, to save face, discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues to enjoy later. The sherry-matured Teapot Dram honours these traditions.

Batch No. 008 is matured exclusively in first-fill European and American oak sherry casks and bottled at 59% ABV. The distillery describes it as possessing bold notes like ginger, leather, prunes and citrus.

Barbara Turing, brand manager at Ian Macleod Distillers, said, “We’re delighted to unveil the latest instalment of our ever-popular Teapot Dram series just in time for the festive period. Similar to the seven batches before it, No. 008 boasts its own bold and unique character. First-fill European and American sherry casks give it a luscious dark copper colour and a rich, mouth-coating palate of cooked apple, subtle spice and soft oak.”

Just 3,000 bottles of Teapot Dram Batch No. 008 are available, at an RRP of £120, from the Glengoyne Distillery shop and website. Global brand ambassador, Gordon Dundas, and distillery manager, Robbie Hughes, will conduct a live-streamed tasting of this new product in the new year.
