A TALE OF THE FOREST

BOTANICAL NOTES BRING THE WONDER OF THE FOREST TO LIFE

whisky INSPIRED BY NATURE

A TALE of the forest is glenmorangie’s first whisky crafted from barley kilned with woodland botanicals.

We have found there’s a real connection to the forest in taste terms. There’s a little bit of background smoke in there, an incredible ethereal sharpness from the juniper, as well as some lavender and piney, floral notes which makes this limited edition whisky so unique.

HOW WE CRAFTED OUR WHISKY

WE brought back an ancient method of kilning barley with botanicals.

We researched many different botanicals and in the end we chose birch bark, juniper berries and heather flowers. It was distilled in our towering copper stills and filled into a range of casks, including a higher proportion of refill casks than we would normally use, to make sure the aromatics would shine through.

OUR UNIQUE FLAVOUR PROFILE

Inspired by the everchanging natural wonder encountred while wandering in the forest.

Evoking the scents, sounds and sights of the forest, the single malt surrounds your senses with aromas of pine, juniper and coriander, laced with wisps of smoke. Then tastes of deep-green eucalyptus, lit by rays of bitter orange, drift to a slow, gently oaky finish.

Lush and invitingly herbaceous, Glenmorangie A Tale of the Forest is Glenmorangie’s first whisky crafted from barley kilned with woodland botanicals.

 

Inspired by the ever changing natural wonder he encounters while wandering in the forest near his home, Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, brought back an ancient method of kilning barley with botanicals. In this case, he chose juniper berries, birch bark and heather flowers.

 

Evoking the scents, sounds and sights of the forest, the single malt surrounds your senses with aromas of pine, juniper and coriander, laced with wisps of smoke. Then tastes of deep-green eucalyptus, lit by rays of bitter orange, drift to a slow, gently oaky finish.

 

The whisky’s fragrant, wooded depths have inspired illustrator Pomme Chan to dream up her own fantastical forest. Celebrating the whisky’s flavours and botanicals, her artwork is showcased on the whisky’s pack.
