  1. i am not a kashrus expert but i would imagine that this can give some evidence to some on other whiskeys or scotch that that too may be kosher. Maybe

  2. The Glenmorangie Company and Moet Hennessy USA announced today that Glenmorangie Original, “Scotland’s favorite single malt”

    My seventh grade teacher used to say “Self-Praise does not make recmmendation”

  3. Cheers L’Chaim… Oif simchas… May this great kashrus achievement serve as a guter siman for klal yisrael … Many more!

  4. The OU Kosher certification will bring our iconic brand to an entirely new consumer base that can now enjoy our products,” said Brian Cox, USA Brand Director, Glenmorangie…….As if we don’t already do!

  5. does that mean they don’t use wine caskets or do they hold it’s OK. if they didn’t get rid of the sherry caskets I don’t need them, I can continue to drink Glenlevet

  6. I thought single-malt scotch was kosher without any certification…is this just like Tide and Palmolive getting OU label on their products!?! can someone please explain…a grossa shkoach

  7. I believe the word you gentlemen are looking for is “cask”, not “casket”. A cask is a barrel, a casket is a coffin.
