DENMARK NEWS: GLENGLASSAUGH TO SIGN WITH FC WHISKY

Some interesting news for my Danish readers:

Glenglassaugh Distillery in Portsoy, Aberdeenshire has signed with Danish importer 'FC Whisky'.
Glenglassaugh wanted to explore new territories and started negotiations with FC Whisky in Spring 2012 for them to take over the brand in Denmark.

FC Whisky is very happy about this since Glenglassaugh have older casks available, though at a significant price. Glenglassaugh has also just released the 'Revival' and though a young whisky its very good for its age and finally Glenglassaugh already has a good name with many Danish whisky drinkers, with many of them already owning a cask at the distillery.

'This relationship is one that FC Whisky would like to nurture and its always exiting to be a part of projects like relaunching a distillery' says Claus from FC Whisky who also thinks that being a part of something like this is one of FC Whisky's strong sides.

Right now FC Whisky imports the following Glenglassaugh to Denmark:
  • Glenglassaugh 'Revival' 46% - finished in 1st fill sherry butts
  • Glenglassaugh 26yo 46%
  • Glenglassaugh over 30yo 43%
  • Glenglassaugh Chosen Few 35yo 49,6% single cask chosen by Ronnie Routledge.
Later this year a young peated Glenglassaugh at 46% will find its way to the Danish Market.
