Warm up winter with this new liquid gold whisky.

Internationally acclaimed Scottish distillery, The Glen Grant, has just released a new drop for Australian whisky collectors. Joining their award-winning portfolio, Arboralis is a signature Single Malt Scotch Whisky that celebrates the distillery’s 180-year history.

“We are very proud of our newest single malt, which we call our very own ‘liquid gold’,” said master distiller Dennis Malcolm. “It’s particularly exciting to launch the product on the year of our 180th anniversary to celebrate The Glen Grant’s heritage and inspire future generations of Scotch enthusiasts.”

Arboralis, meaning “light from within the trees”, is aged in former bourbon and Spanish sherry oak casts that are sheltered by tall, ancient trees that line the Victorian gardens of The Glen Grant Distillery.

Dennis Malcolm, who has almost 60 years of experience in the whisky industry, created Arboralis to celebrate the complex flavour profile the world-renowned distillery is famous for. Introducing a new tasting experience, this single malt scotch whisky captures the distillery’s rich past as well as its journey into the next exciting chapter.

A Brief History of The Glen Grant Distillery

Founded in 1840 by brothers John and James Grant in Rothes, Scotland, The Glen Grant Distillery boasts a double distillation process, which sets its award-winning single malts apart from the competition. Introduced over a century ago by the ingenious James ‘The Major’ Grant, these hand-designed, tall, slender stills and distinctive purifiers capture only the finest vapours.

Still used to this day, the result is a refined and seductively smooth taste for which The Glen Grant is renowned.

The Glen Grant Arboralis is available from liquor retail outlets with an RRP of $60.99. For additional information, please visit www.glengrant.com
