Glenora Distillery is celebrating the launch of Glen Breton 25 Year Old Jardine Reserve.

October 22, 2015

Twenty five years ago, in the fall of 1990, Glenora Distillery started distilling single malt whisky.  Having reached this momentous milestone, Glenora felt it necessary to honour Bruce Jardine, the original founder of Glenora.

Bruce Jardine passed away in 1999 before the realization of his dream, a single malt whisky produced in Cape Breton.

President Lauchie MacLean says, “The team at Glenora is proud to continue Bruce’s dream and is releasing a very limited bottling of single malt whisky that Bruce himself helped to distill in the fall of 1990. We believe it is a superb dream that honours not only the memory of Bruce Jardine and his family, but also the dream that is Glenora Distillery.”

Famous Folks partnered with Glenora in the packaging design and storytelling around the product.  “In preparation for the design work, we interviewed several of Bruce’s friends,” says Clare Tidby, VP Client Strategy. “His vision and energy still resonate today and we wanted that to be reflected in the packaging design. We’re extremely proud of the results and are honoured to have been a part of bringing Bruce’s dream to life.”


Glenora is holding an official launch of Jardine Reserve at noon on Thursday, October 22, 2015, at Glenora Distillery in Glenville, Cape Breton. There will be free distillery tours and an all-day Ceilidh featuring local live entertainment.

Jardine Reserve will be available in select Liquor Outlets in Nova Scotia and across Canada, as well as Europe.
