The tenth release in the Private Edition series from Glenmorangie, Allta means ‘wild’ in Gaelic and takes its title from the wild yeast discovered growing on Glenmorangie’s Cadboll barley. Director of Distilling, Dr Bill Lumsden, used this previously unidentified species of yeast to ferment the local barley from which it came. The resulting dram reveals the importance of yeast in the flavour of Scotch whisky.
The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland’s tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.
