November 11, 2013 – Glengoyne Distillery is following up on the 2009 release of a 40-year-old single malt with a new 35-year-old expression. Only 500 decanters will be available worldwide, with initial availability in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

The distillery, which is located in Dumgoyne near Glasgow and Loch Lomond, blended several ex-Sherry casks together to create the expression. It has been bottled in bespoke crystal and gold decanters at 46.8% ABV, and will carry a recommended retail price of £2,850 ($4,260 USD).
