Glenmorangie Allta Private Edition No. 10

We recently had the chance to sit down with Doctor Bill Lumsden (Glenmorangie’s long-time whisky-maker, or ‘Director of Distilling') and taste his latest private release... Private Edition No. 10, otherwise known as ALLTA, a single malt created with the wild yeast that grows on Glenmorangie’s own barley fields near the distillery. Glenmorangie Allta is described as rich and fruity, “marrying biscuit notes with hints of baking bread, mandarin orange and butter candy.”

This time the focus shifts from casks to yeasts – in this edition wild yeasts from barley fields near the distillery were used in the process. In our video above, Bill tells all about how this NEW whisky was created.

Also notable that the ALLTA label shows a deviation from the standard Private Edition ABV of 46% and sports a stunning ABV of 51.2%.

It’s like the 10 year old on Crystal Meth haha - Dr. Bill Lumsden
