Ok, I admit I was lazy and therefore missed the very important day in history Yesterday.
On May 31st, 1910, Glenmorangie distilleries received what is believed to be the first order of Single Malt for the US, an order destined for the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver.
Starting at the Glenmorangie Distillery in northern Scotland, it took several months going by sea from Liverpool to Galveston Texas, and then by train to Denver.
It’s hard to believe how far we have come since those first two 36 gallon kegs set out 100 years ago. But it is a journey I am glad was made.
Raise a glass tonight and toast this (belated) historic day.
