Glenmorangie’s whisky makers use endless imagination and five key ingredients – wood, water, barley, yeast and time – to dream up delicious single malt whiskies. They’ve been honing their craft for more than 175 years. They create a delicate and fruity spirit in stills as tall as an adult giraffe to allow for more taste and aroma. Led by Director of Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden, this crackerjack crew are on a mission to bring new flavours and possibilities to the world of single malt.
“Our whisky owes its delicious taste to our giraffe-high stills, so we are committed to helping conserve this endangered animal for the future. Through our conservation partnership with GCF and RZSS, we are delighted to support Edinburgh Zoo’s Giraffe About Town trail around Edinburgh, where we have our head office. I look forward to enjoying the sculptures and events next summer, as we do all we can to celebrate this magnificent creature and raise awareness of its plight.”
