Glenglassaugh Distillery was built in 1875 near the town of Portsoy famous for the marble, which was used for Versailles. In its 140 years long history the distillery experienced long periods of closures, the last notable one between 1986 and 2008 (in 1992 its license was cancelled). Glenglassaugh returned to life in 2008 under ownership of the Scaent Group, in the spring of 2016 it was acquired by Brown-Forman Corporation. Glenglassaugh Octaves was launched in June 2016 in two expressions – Peated and Classic. The whisky carries no age statement, we were told it spent about 7 years exclusively in octave casks, capacity about 60 liters. Smaller casks increase interaction between wood and the spirit and consequently accelerate aging process.
