The Glenmorangie Pride 1974, the distillery’s oldest whisky expression, has collectors and aficionados in thirst for it, even with a hefty per-bottle price tag.

Over the past 15 years, as we roamed through the countryside, visited distilleries, and spoke to founding families, we discovered that history can in fact be bottled. As we celebrate our crystal anniversary, we toast to the stories of each producer—with a fine vintage, of course.

Whisky à la Glenmorangie always warms the soul. A favourite from the Scottish distillery is Nectar D’Òr, given the name of gold—in Gaelic—because it’s basically as good as it gets.

Since 1843, the Glenmorangie Distillery has been producing its famous whisky on the shores of the Dornoch Firth.
