Drink Spirits is proud to present an virtual tasting of Mortlach with Georgie Bell, Luxury Global Malts Ambassador for Mortlach at Diageo,
Prior to joining Diageo as the Brand Ambassador for Mortlach, Georgie Bell was known for her work with The Scotch Malt Whisky Society where she was their global ambassador. She was also named one of the top 10 Bartenders in the UK by Class Magazine (in 2009).
During our virtual tasting we tasted Mortlach Rare Old (SRP $129.99), Mortlach 18 Year Old (SRP $299.00), and Mortlach 25 Year Old (SRP $650.00), all of which are slated for release towards the end of the summer. Mortlach is one of Diageo’s legendary distilleries, and like many of their distilleries, contributes a considerable amount of malt used to make the various Johnnie Walker Blends. Built in 1823, Mortlach was the first distillery to be built at Dufftown, which is now one of the epicenters of Speyside whisky distilling.
Mortlach is notorious for its large, complex, and bold flavor experience and its ability to balance sweetness and dryness. Georgie Bell walked us through the full line of new Mortlach, talk about where Mortlach fits in the Scotch Whisky world.
