Glenmorangie Pride 1981 – best of the best spirit in Robb Report’s hotlist

Glenmorangie has yet another reason to celebrate — Pride 1981 has won the spirits category in Robb Report’s “Best of Best” Issue. The most luxurious Glenmorangie expression was chosen as the single winner from eight nominated spirits in the Robb Report’s 24th annual connoisseur’s guide – the veritable “hotlist” of leaders in luxury.

With an extremely limited distribution of only 100 bottles in the U.S., the whisky is presented in a bespoke Baccarat crystal decanter and individually signed by Master Distiller, Dr. Bill Lumsden. The exquisite vessel was designed to perfectly fit in a custom wooden case. This composition of the finest spirit, magnificent crystal and luxurious wooden exterior comes with a suggested retail price of $3,600.

Dr. Bill Lumsden commented: “Why 28 years and not a nice round 30? I felt if I left them in the barrels for another single day, the delicacy of the whisky would be overpowered. It’s all a delicate balance. We are so delighted for our efforts to be recognized alongside the world’s greatest luxury brands.”

Brian Cox, Vice President of Glenmorangie US, added: “We are thrilled to have one of our prized Glenmorangie expressions included in the prestigious Robb Report’s ‘Best of Best.’ We are in great company and winning this category is truly an honor and testament to the dedication and level of excellence Glenmorangie strives to meet every day.”
