Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy new brand  Glenmorangie, has been added to its range of luxury drinks in the Nigerian market. Brand ambassador, Niel Hendriksz describes brand Glenmorangie as a single-malt Scottish whisky meant to serve just a small audience of whisky consumers who want to identify with the best.  “It is a brand for people who want the extra- superior taste in whisky and can actually afford it because of their class."
Talking about the ingredients and delicate process of production as vital to the class status of Glenmorangie, Hendriksz who also looks after the whole Hennessey portfolio, which includes Don Perignon, Veuve Clicquot, Moet and others, says Glenmorangie was established in 1843 by William Matterson in the Northern Islands of Scotland.
According to Hendriksz, the distillery was a family business all the years until 2005, when it was acquired by the world’s largest luxury business, Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, a company that came together in 1987 when two luxury goods and luxury drinks company merged.  With this, Glenmorangie currently becomes the newest brand of the merged Portfolio. Though Glenmorangie has been making whisky for a long time, the brand only started focussing on the African market with from 2007.
On how best to enjoy the brand, “add one or two iced cubes,” Hendriksz says, “and do not dilute it with other drinks.” He also wants consumers of the brand to observe moderation, because for him ‘good life is about balance.’
