New packaging and promotional materials bearing the "OU" symbol from the Orthowill be distributed nationwide in the U.S. over the next few months.
"At Glenmorangie we take great pride in producing Scotland's favorite single-malt whisky, using the finest Scottish barley and hand selected American white oak casks of only the highest quality. The OU kosher certification will bring our iconic brand to an entirely new consumer base that can now enjoy our products," Brian Cox, Glenmorangie U.S. Brand Director.
The Kosher certification is administered by the Orthodox Union, which said Glenmorangie and Ardbeg are the first major whisky producers to earn the OU's Kosher designation.
The Orthodox Union monitors all aspects of production. It supervises the process by which the whisky is created, examines the raw ingredients used to make Glenmorangie and regularly inspects the distilling and bottling facilities to make sure that its standards are met.
