IN HONOUR of the distillery’s new exclusive single malt whisky, the Glenmorangie House is offering a one-of-a-kind luxury getaway experience.
Taking place from the 17th – 19th and the 24th – 26th of November, the Glenmorangie House is offering two weekends full of culinary delights inspired by its A Tale of Tokyo malt whisky.
Drawing inspiration from Japan’s capital, Dr Bill Lumsden – the whisky creator – calls upon various flavours and spices he experienced whilst visiting the bustling city. Pepper, bitter cherries, coconut, orange zest and sweet oak intertwine to form a unique flavour profile.
In order to bring the essence of A Tale of Tokyo to life, Glenmorangie has decided to partner up with Japanese artist Yamaguchi Akira. Yamaguchi is internationally renowned for his oil paintings done in a traditional Japanese style.
His work often depicts bird’s-eye views of cities or other metropolitan areas, and his collaboration with Glenmorangie is no exception. Yamaguchi Akira has created landscape images which juxtapose infamous Tokyo landmarks alongside architectural structures from the Highland Distillery.
With each bottle of A Tale of Tokyo adorned with these intricate labels, the whisky embodies Dr Bill Lumsden’s original vision.
For the weekend experiences, the nine-bedroom hotel will greet guests with a welcome drink, a daily Scottish breakfast, a Kintsugi cup-making class, a private guided tour, whisky tasting at the distillery, a five-course A Tale of Tokyo-inspired tasting menu, a Scottish Highland dinner, afternoon tea, a cocktail making masterclass and an exclusive bottle of the latest release.
Having been recently renovated in 2021 by Russel Sage, the rooms of the hotel each reflect a different part of the whisky-making process. The morning room alludes to expansive fields of barley, whereas the tasting room references Glenmorangie’s historic water source.
Situated within the Scottish Highlands, the whisky weekends make the perfect autumnal getaway.
