Launched in May 2009 only 250 decanters of this rare malt were bottled, each in a Glencairn Crystal hand-blown decanter, individually numbered with an etching of the distillery.
These are presented in an 11-times lacquered piano-finished oak presentation box, embellished with gold plates on the front and hand-stitched cream leather interior. Each decanter comes with a dark brown leather and gold foil bound book signed by the Distillery manager, Robbie Hughes and containing tasting notes and background information on Glengoyne.
