Glenmorangie Milsean Launch @ Ysabel
SCWC was proud to have the honour of hosting Dr. Bill Lumsden as part of the launch for the annual Private Edition series from Glenmorangie. The series is designed to showcase the continued creativity and innovation that has long been a hallmark of the north Highland distillery. The Milsean (pronounced meel-shawn and meaning 'sweet things' in Gaelic) is the seventh such release in the Private Edition series and takes it in yet another different direction. This new expression has been part matured for almost three years in ex-Portuguese red wine casks, which were heavily toasted before filling. This has the effect of re-caramelising the natural sugars in the wood.
Glenmorangie was founded in 1843 by William Matheson and was originally named as Morangie. It is located in the town of Tain, which is about an hours drive north of Inverness, and took its current name in 1887. Glenmorangie is one of Scotland's larger single malt distilleries with an annual production capacity of six million litres. The copper pot stills are the tallest of their type in Scotland and stand over five metres (16.5 feet) tall. The distillery and brand are currently owned by Moet Hennessey, who purchased them in 2004. Glenmorangie is currently the fourth biggest selling single malt in the world.
The event was held in a beautiful restaurant in the heart of West Hollwood at Ysabel. Collared shirt + jacket is recomended for men (ladies already know how to dress appropriately).
