In the early part of the 20th century, Ronald Morrison, a member of the Invergordon family of distillers lived in the busy Scottish port of Leith, where ships docked laden with goods from all corners of the globe.
Inspired by the fusion of aromas he took an ancient whisky recipe and combined it with the herbs, fruit and spices from the ships arriving from Europe, the Caribbean and the Orient. It contains almonds from Brazil, oranges from Seville and a mix of herbs and spices from places as distant as Bombay and Tobago. Produced in Scotland it is named after the phonetic pronunciation of the Gaelic phrase 'Gle mhath!', which means 'very good'. It was formerly introduced in 1947.
