The Art of Maturing

Discover the art behind maturing our whiskies

Extra maturation

Dr Bill Lumsden, an expert in his field, has spent over twenty years experimenting in order to perfect the different finishes that make up our extra-matured range.

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, Glenmorangie Lasanta and Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or will be first matured in American white oak casks for ten years before being extra matured in a hand-selected cask.

Extra Maturation In Port Pipes

Ruban is Gaelic for Ruby, representing the finest Ruby Port casks from the 'Quintas' or wine estates of Portugal in which Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is extra matured.

Extra Maturation In Sherry Butts

'Lasanta' is Gaelic for warmth and passion, a nod to the Spanish provenance of our Oloroso and PX Sherry butts in which we extra-mature Glenmorangie Lasanta.

Extra Maturation In Sauternes Cask

Both Gaelic and French for gold, 'Or' is so named because of the rich colour that develops once Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or has been extra matured in the finest Sauternes wine casks from France.
