Celebrating Heritage: The Glenturret X Jaguar C-Type Limited Edition

Scotland’s oldest working distillery, The Glenturret, recently announced its second collaboration with Jaguar Classic, unveiling an exclusive limited edition in celebration of the Jaguar C-type’s 70th anniversary.

With only 220 bottles available, The Glenturret X Jaguar C-type encapsulates the shared spirit of innovation and excellence defining both The Glenturret and Jaguar Classic.

A Historic Legacy: The Jaguar C-type’s Triumph at Le Mans

In 1953, the Jaguar C-type left an indelible mark on motorsport history, securing its legacy by dominating the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The groundbreaking vehicle, credited with introducing disc brakes to the world, achieved a remarkable 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 9th place finish, setting a new average speed record of 105.84mph – the first instance of breaking the 100mph average barrier.

As part of the Jaguar Classic exclusive C-type Continuation programme and in celebration of the landmark C-type’s 70th anniversary, Jaguar Classic unveiled two exclusive, one-off C-type Continuations.

Each named ’70-Edition’, the special vehicles feature a number of distinctive specifications including hand-crafted silver enamelled badging from partner jeweller Deakin & Francis, ’70-Edition’ stitching and embroidery, and painted roundels.

Craftsmanship in Every Drop: The Glenturret’s Liquid Legacy

The liquid, crafted by Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno, boasts a minimum age of 32 years, carefully drawn from a selection of five casks. The blend showcases the influence of Oloroso sherry-seasoned European oak hogsheads, infusing classic notes of rich fruit and aromatic spices.

Additionally, a single Pedro Ximenez sherry-seasoned American Oak hogshead contributes nuances of sweet vanilla and light oak, elevating the whisky’s profile with a harmonious balance of flavours.

Limited Edition Elegance: The Glenturret x Jaguar C-type Bottling

The Glenturret has released only 220 70cl bottles of this limited-edition Single Malt, a number reflecting the total horsepower of the iconic C-type; it is available now exclusively on www.theglenturret.com, priced at £2,200.00.

Sweet ginger with cinnamon. Hints of treacle, sultanas, ripening apple with vanilla and subtle oak. Wood spices open followed by sticky ginger cake, dates and raisins. Light traces of liquorice in the background, and heavier sweet aromatic notes emerge later. Medium to long finish. Sweet, fruity and aromatic encased in soft maturing oak.

At 42.3% ABV, natural in colour and non-chill filtered, this exceptional whisky embodies the essence of craftsmanship and heritage, making it a must-have for collectors and connoisseurs alike.
