The Glenglassaugh Distillery was built in 1875, and became well known for producing quality whisky. Following a downturn in the industry, the distillery closed in 1907, but eventually reopened in 1960. After another period of whisky creation, it closed again in 1986, but in 2008 was bought by a group of whisky enthusiast investors. A full refurbishment took place, and whisky started to be distilled once more.
This gave us Revival, the first whisky released from the Glenglassaugh distiller for more than 20 years, matured in former red wine and fresh bourbon casks, and vatted and re-racked for double maturation in rich sherry casks.
