Glenmorangie Pride 1974 – Distillery’s Oldest And Rarest Whisky To Date

Glenmorangie Pride 1974

Highland single malt Glenmorangie has unveiled its ‘oldest and rarest’ whisky to date – Glenmorangie Pride 1974. It is the third release in the limited edition Glenmorangie Pride Collection, which showcases the LVMH-owned distillery’s rarest malts.
According to the distillery, Glenmorangie Pride 1974 is a 41-year-old expression that was laid down back in October, 1974 for aging in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks. Upon being deemed ready for bottling by Dr Bill Lumsden, Glenmorangie’s Director of Distilling and Whisky Creation, last year, it was put into just 503 special crystal decanters at a bottling strength of 52% ABV.

The whisky is contained in a crystal decanter designed by glassware specialist Laurence Brabant, featuring gold and metallic detailing. The decanter itself is presented in a cherry wood box with a mirrored interior.
To mark the release of Pride 1974, Glenmorangie and piano maker Steinway & Sons collaborated with pianist Aaron Diehl to compose a piece of music that “embodies the whisky’s rare beauty”.
Glenmorangie Pride 1974 can be purchase at a price of £7,200 (about $9,000).
