What's New

 

 

 

The Glen Breton Toast

So the word is now out for all to see

A single malt from this side of the sea

A lowland taste, or a highland smile, or the tang of the sea,

Like a malt from the Isle

 

These secrets reside in the walls of the cask,

And those bouquets and flavours are with us at last.

Ten years in a complex of oak and of smoke,

Now we reach for the glass,

For the cask has awoke

 

And we’ll toast with Glen Breton,

With more than a dram,

For the dream of Glenora has captured our land

 

From the shores of Cape Breton to our mountainous west

Canadians now toast with their very own best

 

Glen Breton

 Glen Breton Rare ICE
At the suggestion from a Glen Breton fan, Glenora approached Jost Vineyards, an award wining Nova Scotia winery, requesting to use one of their oak barrels once used for their Ortega Ice Wine to finish one of Glenora's cask strength whiskies.  With the partnership in place the experiment began.  Because Ice Wine is powerful in its own unique way Glenora tasted the whisky each day as it picked up trace hints of sweetness and fruit from the grape.  After 4 months it was felt that the ideal finish was achieved.

Glen Breton - Battle of the Glen

The Battle of the Glen

 

Release Date: June 09, 2010

When the Scotch Whisky Association launched its law suit against Glenora Distillers in 2000, shortly after the release of its first bottling proudly called "Glen Breton Rare", a media frenzy soon followed in newspapers, magazines, and online newsletters, forums, and blogs.  North America's only Single Malt Whisky distillery was a hot topic amongst the whisky and local cultural communities.  

Upon victory in the summer of 2009 it was decided to dedicate a bottling to celebrate this epic battle so fittingly called the "Battle of the Glen"
