Founded in 1898 and closed just over a century later in 2002, Caperdonich is a topsy-turvy distillery notable for having been closed less than five years after it opened, and then successfully revived in the mid-Sixties after over sixty years of hibernation. Read More »
A 1968 vintage Caperdonich, bottled by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice range. Originally called Glen Grant No.2, Caperdonich was open for 5 years between 1897 and 1902, closed for 63 years, opened again in 1965 and has been mothballed since 2002. Bottlings form this distillery are therefore relatively rare and in demand.
A great looking 17 year old bottling of Caperdonich, released by Cadenhead's back in the 1980s. This one shows off Cadenhead's excellent typography choice for the distillery, assigning them the same font as The Goodies.
Very old Cadenhead's bottling from the 70s - check out that retro font! This is from a little-seen distillery that never released an official bottling during its lifetime and which has been silent since 2002.
