20 May 2009, Edinburgh: Award-winning Glengoyne Highland Single Malt has successfully secured an exclusive presence at Europe's largest and most renowned audio-visual event, the HIGH END show in Munich (21-24 May), thanks to a unique partnership with fellow Scottish brand, Tannoy.
Built on the companies' shared commitment and passion for outstanding craftsmanship and only the highest quality, the collaboration at HIGH END brings together Tannoy's renowned 'Made in Scotland' heritage, with Glengoyne's authentic 'Real Taste of Malt' credentials.
Over 250,000 attendees are expected at the four-day HIGH END show, which will premier the latest technology in high-quality home entertainment to all connoisseurs and enthusiasts of excellent sound and perfect pictures.
The only whisky brand present at the event, Glengoyne will host an exclusive VIP stylish bar for Tannoy, with brand ambassador on hand to provide guided tastings and educate visitors in the art of whisky making and blending. Glengoyne will also be presenting its latest Limited Edition, Glengoyne 40 Years Old, the distillery's oldest, most valuable, and very best Single Malt ever produced in its 175 year history.

Glengoyne and Tannoy share a common ground as successful independent Scottish businesses, who have built a strong reputation in the UK and abroad. We also share a very similar premium customer base and I am sure that working together will help us reach new audiences by reinforcing our key messages and common objectives."
HIGH END is the first outing of what is expected to be a highly successful and mutually beneficial partnership, introducing new audiences to both brands, with planning for future events already underway.
