- The brand
Founded in 1898, at the dawn of the biggest crisis to hit the whisky industry in the 19th century, Glentauchers spent its entire life overshadowed by production for blended scotch, with the majority of its malt being used for the Buchanan blend and, later, Black & White. After halting production during the two world wars, it finally closed its doors for good in 1985. In 1989 it was bought by the Allied Domecq group (Ballantine’s) before being taken over by the Pernod Ricard group in 2005. Though an official bottling did appear on the market in the 90s, bottlings of its single malts are seldom found. The rare versions that are available are released by independent bottlers such as Signatory Vintage and Gordon & Macphail.
Négociant allemand indépendant, Sansibar sélectionne des fûts rares et de qualité, des whiskies écossais mais aussi des rhums des Caraïbes, afin de servir le fameux restaurant du même nom, situé sur l'île Sylt au large des côtes Allemandes et Danoises.
Aujourd’hui, La Maison du Whisky est heureuse de vous les proposer de manière exclusive.
