Six guiding principles rooted in nearly 200 years of our craft. An unwavering commitment to the environment. And a gathering of like-minded people. This is the Glengoyne Way. We always dry our barley by air – Our founders established this tradition through necessity: there is no peat in the soil around Dumgoyne. The slowest stills in Scotland – Glengoyne’s bold flavours are the result of an equally bold pledge: to coax our spirit through the slowest whisky stills in Scotland. Our sherry casks are rare and expensive. Each Glengoyne cask is handled with meticulous care. We choose the harder path – We start by selecting our own oak from the forests of northern Spain. We then insist it is dried naturally by sun and air for three years. When it’s ready, each hand-built cask is filled with sherry in Jerez, and left to absorb its rich colour and flavours for up to three years. Our progress is measured not in years or decades, but in centuries.
