The Glenrothes Soleo Collection is now available to buy from Edencroft!
The Soleo Collection is a complete re-vamp of the distillery’s range, aiming to streamline their expessions and avoid consumer confusion within the brand.
The Soleo Collection features five bottlings:-
- 10 Year Old (95 Points from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge)
- 12 Year Old (93 Points from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge)
- 18 Year Old
- 25 Year Old (97 Points and The Chairmans Trophy at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge)
- Whisky Maker’s Cut – a higher-strength single malt made using only first-fill Sherry casks.
The new collection is all about the Sherry!
Sherry casks have been employed by Glenrothes for many years, giving the dram its reddish hue and hint of sweet spice. But now the distillery will be using them exclusively.
The ‘Soleo’ in the collections name refers to the Andalusian sun and the traditional, sun-drying process, where the grapes are left outside to dry – a process used in the making of the famous Pedro Ximénez sherry.
