Single Malt Scotch whisky producer, Glenmorangie has announced the opening of its new, innovative distillery named the Lighthouse.
Located in Tain, overlooks the Dornoch Firth’s dramatic coastline, the towering 20m high glass building will give creators the space and ability to control all parts of distilling, letting them create entirely new taste profiles in their whiskies.
Designed by Barthélémy Griño, The Lighthouse features two signature Glenmorangie copper stills and a state-of-the-art sensory laboratory, as well as providing everything the famed makers need in order to develop their brand and reach new heights of taste experimentation.
Speaking on the new venture, Director of Whisky Creation Dr Bill Lumsden said, “Our Lighthouse is the new home of imagination. Here, we can indulge our most fantastical ideas as we strive to create a whole array of different flavours. We will be able to play with whisky’s core ingredients, making small adjustments and big changes in ways never tried before. Nothing is off-limits in the Lighthouse, as long as it’s delicious.”
To celebrate the new venture, Glenmorangie has released a new limited-edition expression titled Lighthouse, a silky 12-year-old single malt with sumptuous flavours of apricot and orange, limited to 3,000 bottles. This new expression will only be available at the Distillery Visitor Centre.
