In 1738, a brewery was built upon Morangie Farm in the Highlands region of Scotland. A century later, William Matheson acquired the farm and equipped the Morangie brewery with two stills that he purchased second-hand, and renamed the brewery-converted-distillery Glenmorangie. Since then, Glenmorangie has produced some of the finest single malt whiskies in Scotland.
Glenmorangie Signet Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the culmination of a “lifetime” of experimentation and innovation, says Dr. Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Master of Whisky Creation. While studying Biochemistry and Cell Biology as a student at Glasgow University over 30 years ago, Lumsden began experimenting with the distillation of different varieties of malted barley that were commonly used to produce beer (the barley used to produce beer is often roasted or caramelized, while the barley used to make whisky traditionally is not).
