Glenmorangie has formed a collaboration with bicycle pioneer Renovo to create a limited edition run of bicycles from whisky casks.

When the casks are decommissioned, their staves are shipped from Scotland to Renovo’s workshop in Oregon, in the U.S. There, they are crafted into Glenmorangie Original bicycles. Each contains about 15 staves in a frame, which reflects the curvature of the casks. 

Glenmorangie’s director of distilling and whisky creation Dr Bill Lumsden said: “Glenmorangie is renowned for using the finest casks just twice, to create the smoother, rounder profile of The Original – a whisky which beautifully balances hints of ripening peaches and citrus fruits with creamy, vanilla notes, to delight malt connoisseurs and amateurs alike. This pioneering collaboration with Renovo brings new life to the casks which inspire our whisky. Each one of these limited-edition bicycles is a fitting celebration of our expertise in wood and shared passion for creativity.” 



Renovo’s founder Ken Wheeler added: “We are so excited to be working with Glenmorangie, a Distillery with which we feel such affinity. Renovo is dedicated to honouring wood in the creation of our bicycles, engineered to perfection for a smoother ride. And these beautiful machines, uniquely fashioned from Glenmorangie’s staves, will inspire anyone with a taste for innovation.”
