These three new whiskies form part of the 2021 range of single malts from the Highland distillery of Glenturret, which is the oldest currently operating in Scotland. The range follows 2020's Maiden Release series and features the same six expressions - the no age statement Triple Wood, 10 years old Peat Smoked and then age statements at 12, 15, 25 and 30 years old. However, each whisky is different to its 2020 version. They have been created by Bob Dalgarno, the Whisky Maker for Glenturret.
Glenturret is located in the Perthshire town of Crieff and was founded by a group of illicit whisky producers in 1775. It was originally a small farm operation called Hosh Distillery and this was finally legalised in 1837 when John Drummond took over. The name was only changed to Glenturret in 1875 on the 100th anniversary of production. Glenturret is one of the smaller distilleries in Scotland with an annual production capacity of only 150,000 litres. It is also one of the most traditional with most work still completed by hand. The current owners are Lalique, the famous luxury jewellry and crystal producer, who took over in 2018.
The Glenturret Triple Wood has been matured in ex-bourbon, re-fill American oak and European oak, and is bottled at 44% ABV. A bottle will cost £47. The 10 years old Peat Smoked is made using peated malt and is bottled at 50% ABV. The price is £54. The 12 years old is bottled at 46% and is a combination of American oak ex-bourbon and European oak ex-sherry casks. A bottle will cost £60.
