Glenbridge 40 Year Old was bottled and released by well-known supermarket Aldi back in late 2011, whipping the whisky world into a short but palpable frenzy. How, you ask? How could a supermarket get swaths of whisky folk to queue up outside hours before the shop even opened? By only producing 3,000 bottles of the aforementioned 40 year old whisky and selling it for just under £50, that’s how. Not only was it old whisky being sold a lot cheaper than you would expect, it was old and good whisky. Jim Murray even gave it one of his coveted Liquid Gold Awards in his Whisky Bible.
