Glenmorangie 18 Years Old Launches Limited Edition Floral Design
Glenmorangie 18 Years Old’s fragrant bouquet has inspired a unique collaboration with botanical sculptor Azuma Makoto.
Comparing the rare Highland single malt Scotch whisky’s luscious, floral notes to a flower in bloom, Azuma Makoto celebrates its unfolding radiance in a stunning limited-edition design.
“Azuma Makoto’s stunning work deliciously translates the sweet, floral lushness of Glenmorangie 18 Years Old,” said Glenmorangie’s Director of Whisky Creation Dr. Bill Lumsden.
“A mere glimpse of his limited-edition design brings to mind the whisky’s scents of geranium, tuberose, and jasmine, and tastes of honeysuckle and sweet pea, figs, and nuts. Since it looks as wonderful as it tastes, this limited edition is sure to delight whisky lovers old and new.”
Glenmorangie 18 Years Old is one of Glenmorangie’s most delicious single malts. It begins with a delicate, fruity spirit, crafted in tall stills to allow more space for taste and aroma. Next, the spirit is aged in bourbon casks for 15 years, then a portion is transferred into Oloroso sherry casks for three more years. After 18 years, these casks are reunited to create the single malt whisky’s dazzling, luminous tastes.
Makoto’s Dancing Flowers of Glenmorangie floral sculpture will premier at Chelsea’s Saatchi Gallery’s upcoming Late openings, from 6-9 pm, on Thursdays September 23 and 30. This moving sculpture, featuring almost 100 different blooms, reimagines the whisky through the language of flowers.
“When I first tasted Glenmorangie 18 Years Old, each sip of the whisky unfurled as if it was a flower in bloom,” said Makoto. “I hope that through this limited-edition design, my work brings as much joy as the delicious tastes which inspired it.”
Glenmorangie 18 Years Old’s limited edition Azuma Makoto design will be available from 1st November at Clos19.com, whisky specialists, and Amazon, priced at 100£. You can register your interest on Clos19.com.
Whisky lovers are invited to try the limited-edition Glenmorangie 18 Years Old at the Azuma “Whisky in Full Bloom” Bar at Saatchi Gallery during the upcoming Saatchi Lates on September 23rd and September 30th from 6 pm-9 pm.
