Glengoyne // Highlands, Scotland
Opened in 1833, Glengoyne is a Highland distillery owned by Ian Macleod Distillers. The distillery prides itself on using the slowest distillation in Scotland, allowing the spirit ample time to interact with the still. Burnfoot is a travel-retail exclusive bottling, named for the original name of the distillery before it became Glengoyne in 1908 ("Valley of the Wild Geese"). Matured in a combination of first-fill and refill sherry casks, the Burnfoot carries no age statement and is bottled at 40% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
