Glenmorangie Original, Scotland’s top single malt whisky, has been kosher-certified by the Orthodox Union, the world’s largest kosher certification agency. Its comparatively new expression Glenmorangie Astar also received the certification.
In addition, Glenmorangie's sister distillery, Ardbeg, has received kosher certification for its Ardbeg 10 Year Old expression.
The Orthodox Union monitors all aspects of production. It supervises the process by which the whisky is created, examines the raw ingredients used, and regularly inspects the distilling and bottling facilities to make sure its standards are met.
"We are very pleased to have Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky become the first major single malt scotch brand to attain OU certification. It was also gratifying for OU to guide the Glenmorangie Company through the certification process and bring this famous single malt brand to the growing kosher market place," said Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, OU kosher vice president of communications and marketing.
New packaging and promotional materials bearing the OU symbol will be distributed nationwide over the next few months.
