Despite being owned by blenders, MacDonald & Muir, for most of the 20th century, Glenmorangie had an early focus on bottling its single malt. Some records show that its single malt was being sold as early as the late 19th century. This became the distillery's main output in 1959, and with the unique flavours derived from Scotland's tallest stills, coupled with their pioneering use of wood finishing, Glenmorangie is now one of the world's biggest selling malts. As a result, the distillery portfolio over the years has been extensive, and little has been spared for independent bottlers.
One of the earliest examples of the distillery's pioneering wood finish programme, this was launched in 1994, and follwed up by a Sherry Finish and the Madeira Finish in 1996. A Burgundy Wood Finish completed the quartet when launched in 2002. The Madeira and Burgundy finishes were discontinued in 2007, with this and the sherry version repackaged as the Lasanta and the Quinta Ruban in the new core range.
