About this Lady of The Glen whisky

Glenrothes make a bright and fruity distillate. This particular Glenrothes single malt has been fully matured in a hogshead. Patient maturation by Lady Of The Glen has allowed rich oak character of spice and sweetness to influence the spirit for a final balance of floral notes, juicy fruit and oak.

Age is just a number when it comes to whisky, but one can’t ignore the majesty of this old Speysider. Matured all its life in an active single hogshead, the robust nature of this spirit has allowed it to stand up to the unusually strong oak and spice notes offered from the cask.

Meet The Founder

Gregor Hannah

Lady Of The Glen was founded by, and is still run by, Gregor Hannah. From a young age, Gregor developed a keen interest in whisky, influenced by his father, a Scottish piper. His father would often receive bottles of whisky as tokens of appreciation for his performances at various celebrations, including weddings and Burn's Nights. Fascinated by the wide array of bottles, each with its own unique colours, shape, and label, Gregor developed a strong appreciation for scotch whisky.

Two and a half decades later, while working at a bar, Gregor's learned about independent bottling. Here, he gained in-depth knowledge about the history and techniques of sourcing and bottling unique whiskies. This led him to establish Lady of The Glen in 2012. The brand is independently owned and specialises in sourcing and bottling rare, single-cask whiskies from various regions in Scotland.
