The Glenglassaugh Distillery Company has outlined release details for its single malt Scotch whisky portfolio.

The company, which is controlled by the Netherlands-based investment company Scaent Group, plans to release three variants from its soon-to-be reopened distillery in time for Christmas.

Speaking to just-drinks today (20 October), Glenglassaugh's managing director, Stuart Nickerson, confirmed that the company will launch a 21-year-old, a 30-year-old and a 40-year-old Scotch whisky in the coming weeks.

The 21-year-old will be offered in a Cognac-style bottle, and will retail at around GBP150 (US$257) per bottle. The 30- and 40-year-old variants, meanwhile, will come in wooden-boxed decanters, and will cost in the region of GBP400 and GBP1,500 respectively.

"We're looking specifically at the UK, certain areas of the US, Russia, Scandinavia, and possibly the Far East," Nickerson said.

Up to 2,000 bottles of the 30- and 40-year-old will be available per year for about ten years, while only 7,000 bottles of the 21-year-old will be on offer. "Once it's sold, it's gone forever," Nickerson added.

The company acquired the Glenglassaugh distillery, near Aberdeen, from The Edrington Group in February this year for around GBP5m. The distillery had been mothballed since 1986, but the company hopes to restart production at the facility by the end of next month.
