Karen Fullerton who is the Global brand ambassador for Glenmorangie was in Durban for FNB's Whisky Live exhibition at the Durban ICC, so it was a unique opportunity for us to meet her along with Patrick John Leslie from the Moet - Hennessy group of South Africa, seeing that I didn't get the opportunity to visit the event this year. Learning first hand from Karen about the Glenmorangie was quite an experience, she is so passionate about the brand and their product, it just leaves one fascinated about it.
Here are some facts about what makes Glenmorangie unique to other whisky's:
- They have the tallest stills in Scotland, ensuring that their spirit is the lightest, purest and most elegant in the business.
- They only use the finest ingredients for their whiskys, one of which they pride on is Scottish grown barley. They're one of the few that don't use imported barley.
- The casks are made from hand selected oak trees and are only ever filled twice.
- The whisky making traditions have been passed down from generation to generation, ensuring things are done the same way as when the founder William Matheson did so.
