Break-even Bottle No 60 | Glenglassaugh Whisky Event | The Cottage
Tuesday October 12, 2021
4:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Introducing progressive break-even bottles. These bottles are still exquisite and rare, outside of what you’ll typically see on menus and sold in 1 oz. pours for cost. And now come back the following week for another exceptional bottle from the same producer to compare tasting notes. (We’ll also open our library with special deals on tastings from bottles on our shelf from each week’s producer.) Tuesdays only, we open the bottle at 4p and sell 1 oz pours until it’s gone.
Reservations are highly recommended but not required.
A very special Break-even Bottle night! We’ll be joined by a special guest (Carolyn Sellar, a whisky expert), have prizes and giveaways…and, of course, have some amazing whiskies to taste!
• Our first 20 guests will receive a complementary Glenglassaugh Glencairn glass.
• A raffle will be held for all that participate in this break-even event.
The Revival is the first expression released from Glenglassaugh distillery after being mothballed for more than 20 years. The Glenglassaugh Revival has been matured in a balanced mix of ex-red wine and fresh bourbon casks, vatted and re-racked for double maturation in rich sherry casks. Bottled at 46%, non chill filtered and of natural colour, Revival is a stunning Highland single malt with a coastal charm.
Glenglassaugh Evolution is created by maturing the whisky in a unique combination of the finest hand-picked ex-Tennessee first-fill whiskey barrels. This expression shows great depth of character and finesse, a harmonious combination of whisky and oak. Bottled at 50%, natural colour and non chill filtered, Evolution represents the heart of Glenglassaugh’s distinctive personality, and indeed the landscape in which it is set.
At Glenglassaugh, in addition to the traditional production, we also produce a very limited quantity of whisky using richly peated malted barley as the cereal varietal. The malted barley has been dried in the traditional way, over peat infused kilns, giving the whisky its unique smoky flavour. Glenglassaugh ‘Torfa’, with its peaty, phenolic nature, is a unique expression, and is quite different to the usual style of whisky produced in the Highlands.
