Single Malt Whiskey
30 Years Hand Crafted
Our distillery has been recognized as the first single malt whisky distillery in North America, and we’ve also produced the world’s first single malt whisky aged in ice wine barrels. Our copper pot stills and time-tested traditions mean the whisky we produce is on par with the greatest single malts in Scotland.
Glenora is located in Nova Scotia, a province whose name literally translates to ‘New Scotland.’ Being a part of Nova Scotia’s heritage means that Cape Breton Island is one of very few places on Earth where Gaelic culture and language thrive. As Scottish descendants we passionately keep the dearest aspects of our ancestor’s colourful culture alive.
Glen Breton Rare 8 Year Old was our first single malt whisky and it was the first single malt whisky produced in North America.
It sold out not long after hitting the shelves in 2000, and since then we’ve introduced many product offerings, including but not limited to our flagship products: Glen Breton Rare 10 Year, 14 Year, 19 Year, 21 Year, 25 Year and the first single malt finished in ice wine barrels.
