The Glenrothes ’40 Years Old’ Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Every single malt from The Glenrothes captures a moment in time, inspired by the past but coming to life in the present. Every bottle defines its own part of the legacy and the story behind our distillery. But not every whisky is unrepeatable. Created over four decades, this rare and inspired single malt marks a moment in the history of The Glenrothes that can never be repeated. It belongs to a time gone by.
About The Brand
Quietly and without compromise, The Glenrothes distillery has been producing some of Speyside’s finest single malt for more than a century. What began in 1879 continues in much the same way to this day: the making of a no-nonsense, finely crafted single malt. A whisky made with integrity, authenticity and, above all, with expert craft.
The history of The Glenrothes Distillery begins with the stories of two exceptional men. James Stuart, who first had the vision to build a new distillery in the town of Rothes, and the Reverend William Sharp, who raised the funds needed to save the distillery from ruin and helped to turn James Stuart’s dream into a reality.
The Glenrothes estate is divided by a river. On one side, the cathedral-like arches of the stillhouse witness the vibrant new make spirit coming to life. On the other, our warehouse carefully nurtures the casks as they rest peacefully, making their patient journey towards the moment when they reach the peak of perfection.
