Commenting on the launch, John Glass, Master Blender at Glengoyne, said: “Our dedication to the best quality wood imparts itself in every expression from Glengoyne, and the White Oak range is a celebration of exactly that.”

“I love Glengoyne in bourbon wood; the distillery character balances wonderfully with the vanilla, coconut and spice from the casks; so have been eager to create expressions that showcase this style.”

Glengoyne White Oak and Glengoyne White Oak 24 Year Old, are now available from specialist retailers in the UK, for the respective RRP’s of £55.00 and £430.00.
