Stuart Nickerson of Glenglassaugh Distillery guest blogged on The Malt Advocate Blog today. Glenglassaugh, which reopened its doors in late 2008, has recently released some very interesting product, but unfortunately scotch lovers will have to wait a few years for more traditional offerings. Here’s a clip from the blog entry.
Glenglassaugh was shut in 1986 [...]. However in the intervening 22 years very little maintenance had been carried out on the buildings and plant and even though the mash tun, washbacks and stills were in reasonable condition, £1.0m was required to re-furbish the distillery before we started production again in November 2008.
We were lucky to have the production records used in the 1980’s and so we could run the process using the same mass, volumes, temperatures, flowrates and cut-points as those used previously. This gave us confidence that we had a good opportunity that we would produce a good quality new make spirit
