A full tumbler of whisky a day was wonderful, certainly, for the seasoned workers – but a bit much for the younger ones. To save face, they’d discretely pour their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their older colleagues.
Usually only available at the Glengoyne Distillery, the Teapot Dram Batch No. 007 has been lovingly recreated by men with a hazy recollection of those times. And because the daily dram would never be taken from an old cask, this is a deliberately young, bold whisky.
Swathes of red apples, demerara, chocolate-enrobed Turkish delight
Tangy Seville marmalade, cinnamon, cloves and rich, dark cocoa
Exceptionally long with a burst of crystallised sugar sweetness at the end.
