What’s happening at Lady of the Glen

Cask Selection In France

Sep 20th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Sourcing casks is an important part of my role as an independent bottler. By judging the spirit I have and assessing it based on its body, sweetness and character I’ll decide what casks I feel will either enhance the flavour traits, provide greater balance or take the spirit into a different flavour profile which I…

QTR 3 Outrun

Sep 12th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

In QTR 3 Gregor bottled 8 casks to produce 1,699 bottles. Perhaps what makes this outrun particularly special are the wine casks which were sourced last year directly from vineyards in Italy, whereas the Port and Sherry releases are from our go-to bodega in Portugal.  Caol Ila – Bourbon cask matured for 8 years and finished…

Gregor’s Guide To Finishing

Aug 25th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Going forward Lady of the Glen will be releasing many whiskies that are finished. Admittedly, this is not innovative by any stretch as finishing has taken place within the industry for many years. However, Scotch itself is a wonderfully diverse product, with different flavours appearing within different regions, from over 130 different distilleries that produce…

Why Does An Independent Whisky Bottler Travel To Portugal?

Aug 10th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

The answer – to personally select the very best casks to finish the rare spirit I source in Scotland. For over a year now I have sourced casks from the Josafer bodega near Porto. They provide the Pedro Ximenez (PX) Octaves that have been sold and some of the Tawny and Ruby Port releases too.…

Gregor’s Guide To Whisky Regions

Jul 02nd, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Whisky regions are very interesting because on the one hand they help to categorise an industry by whisky type, and an industry so diverse requires some level organisation to manage, whilst on the other hand they are almost irrelevant.   Most whisky shops will categorise their stock by region and the valuation of whisky at…

Gregor’s Guide To Whisky Glasses

Jun 25th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Whisky glasses are a contentious aspect of the whisky industry because everyone has a favourite and admittedly I’ve never really had a particular preference. More and more often, I’ll visit festivals where aficionados have taken their own glasses and despite some appearing more cumbersome the aficionado will be undeterred! The majority of whisky festivals provide…

May 20th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

It’s whisky festival season (does it ever end!) and we’ve already been to a few this year, while our stock has been represented by our distributors in Europe and East Asia. As you’ll know a whisky festival is a great opportunity to try new releases, expand your own palate while also trying some of your…

Gregor’s Guide To Maturation

May 16th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Maturation is a key aspect of the production of Whisky. Companies spend millions of pounds on sourcing oak from the Ozark region in the US for wood that will be used for the production of specific casks and the location of good bodegas in Europe is highly sought-after industry knowledge. This is all due to statistics such as 80% of a whisky’s flavour…

Gregor’s Guide To Grain Whisky

May 08th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Last year we released a few single grain casks of Whisky, a Girvan Grain and before that an Invergordon. In the future, we will continue to release single grain casks as matured grain is exceptionally tasty and good value.   It is a different product to Single Malt and probably has more in common with…

Gregor’s Guide To Peat

Apr 29th, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Peat stacking  When I first started drinking whisky, peaty whisky was not enjoyable and as recently as two years ago I still didn’t like peat. This changed when I went to Feis Islay in 2018 and I tried so many different peaty whiskies that it finally clicked, like when you start drinking beer and it’s…

Gregor’s Guide To Still Shape And Flavour

Apr 22nd, 2019 | Gregor Hannah

Visiting a distillery can be great fun and viewing the stills is always a highlight because in your mind, or at least in my mind, you recognize this is where that distillery’s unique spirit is created.Regardless, if folk suggest that it takes place during fermentation or it’s more to do with barley strain or to…
