Six guiding principles rooted in nearly 200 years of our craft. An unwavering commitment to the environment. And a gathering of like-minded people. Our founders established this tradition through necessity: there is no peat in the soil around Dumgoyne. This means there is no smokiness in our whisky – and nowhere for coarse flavours or average casks to hide. That is why we take such care to craft our spirit, coaxing it through the slowest stills in Scotland – then maturing in fine sherry casks. We stay true to the taste of Glengoyne – creating bold fruits and rich sweetness. Every skill – every intricate step – evolves through hard work and long practice. It’s why we still dry our barley by air. It’s why we distil more slowly than anyone else in Scotland. It is also why we moved predominantly to sherry cask maturation in the 1870s, latterly securing our own private supply of this venerable wood.
