Description

We are delighted to announce the (re)launch of one of Perthshire’s original ‘grocer’s blends’, the BRIG O’ PERTH. Established in 1896 by Matthew Gloag Son, the Blended Scotch Whisky was produced in the ‘Old Highland’ style and was described by The Lancet in 1897 as "desirably smooth and mellow to the taste". On its 125th birthday (December 2021), we brought to market this ‘Special Anniversary Blend’ - 14 years of age and made with many of the same Highland Malts that appeared in Gloag’s purchase ledgers, including Ben Nevis and Blair Athol. The malt content is uncommonly high (at more than 50%), the strength sits at a punchy 46.7% ABV and the spirit is non-chill filtered, retaining all the weighty texture and silky smooth mouthfeel. On the nose: Sweet notes are dominant - toffee popcorn, milky cereal, choux pastries, crystalised ginger, bitter orange marmalade. The palate delivers exactly what the nose promised – sweetness of toffee apples, frosted cereal flakes, heather honey, ginger spice warmth. Chocolate orange and exotic tea leaves. The finish is warming and sweet in equal measure with notes of icing sugar and white pepper. The higher ABV % delivers a nice punch of heat while the weight and texture is uncommon in Blended Scotch, the result of non-chill filtering, leaving a long and lingering mouthfeel.

Scotland – Wild history, warming whisky

Whiskey, bagpipes, kilts – These are the most famous elements of Scottish culture. It has not been conclusively determined who invented whisky. The Scots and Irish both argue that they invented the “water of life.” Food and drink definitely tops the Scottish export categories. Every second, around 40 bottles of whisky are purchased. So it’s hardly surprising that whisky makes up around 80 percent of total food and drink exports.
