Built by James Rankine on the banks of the Forth-Clyde canal between Glasgow and Edinburgh in 1840 (although distilling is said to have been carried out on the site since the late 18th century), Rosebank became a limited company in 1894 and in 1914 was one of the founding members of the Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd (later to be taken over by DCL ...

An increasingly hard to find bottling, as it was discontinued a while back, from the closed and now redeveloped Rosebank distillery. A victim of the early 1990s downturn in the whisky market and producer of some beautiful whiskies. MAXIMUM 1 BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER.
A 1989 vintage whisky from closed Lowlander Rosebank, gone since 1993 and now a number of attractive apartments. This was matured for 15 years in a bourbon hogshead before bottling in February 2005 by Cadenhead's.

A punchy yet well aged example of whisky from distillery 25, according to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's numbering scheme. This was distilled at closed Lowlander Rosebank in April 1981 and was bottled 21 years later in August 2002.

A very rare official bottling of Rosebank, this high-strength 15yo dates from the 1980s (when the distillery was still open) and has a wonderful old-fashioned steely austerity uncharacteristic for such a relatively easy-going spirit. Water reveals a bitter lemon and other tangy citrus notes. A classic of this 'pure' style.
