|Barrel No. 1|
Not an unusual story in a country that is home to a fair number of closed distilleries. However, every now and then one is brought back to life. That's the case of Glenglassaugh.
An independent group of investors took it over in 2008 and, after it was refurbished, went back on line. The first mash took place on the November 28 of that year, and the first spirit distillation on December 4 with the first cask of the new era filled two days later. Those first casks will officially become three years old and officially single malt Scotch whisky on December 16 this year.

On December 16 that cask will be emptied into approximately 650 bottles at cask strength, natural color and with no chill filtration.
