Glenrothes Extraordinary Cask Collection

Glenrothes-Extraordinary-Cask-02The Glenrothes single Speyside malt whisky, distributed by Maxxium UK is bolstering its range with a new series of single cask bottlings from the late 1960s and 1970s.

Since 1994 The Glenrothes has released less than one single cask a year. However, The Glenrothes newest series, The Extraordinary Cask Collection, will be welcomed by whisky enthusiasts who have expressed great demand for older and rarer bottlings.

A master craftsman at Atlantis Crystal in Alcobaca, Portugal has enhanced the recognisable shape of the Glenrothes bottle into a hand-blown lead crystal decanter.

Brass has been used for the hand-engraved collar on the neck of the decanter, supplied by Charles Stott, of the Edinburgh-based Scottish Silversmiths, and the head of the stopper is fashioned from the wood of cask 10573 in which the whisky has matured.
