A Traditional Coastal Malt
Glenglassaugh is a Highland single malt whisky distillery located in located in the picturesque coastal village of Portsoy in Banffshire. Founded in 1875, the distillery was in operation only very briefly until the 1960s and for much of its life was under the radar of most single malt enthusiasts.
That changed in 2008 when the distillery was purchased by the Scaent Group. Their acquisition breathed new life into Glenglassaugh, which after years of inactivity resumed production in earnest in November 2008. The distillery’s first release under its new ownership was the appropriately named Revival, finished in oloroso Sherry casks. Around this time Glenglassaugh also released several new bottlings from archive stock which were greeted with wide acclaim.
