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 1992 vintage Rosebank from independent bottlers Hunter Laing. This was distilled in February and aged for 21 years before being bottled in November 2013. One of only 122 bottles yielded, this is sure to be another highly sought after bottling from this sadly closed distillery.
A 1984 vintage Rosebank released by independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series in 1996. Rosebank, always richer than the other classic Lowland malts, closed in 1993 and bottlings are highly sought after.
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.
The second cask bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky from Rosebank in the Lowlands. This was distilled in September 1979 and bottled 11 years later in September 1990 presumably, judging by the colour, from a sherry cask. The distillery closed in 1993 and now enjoys a cult following.
A bottling of 1981 vintage Rosebank from the Rare Malts Selection, bottled at 20 years of age. In line with the range, this was bottled at natural cask strength. Bottles from Rosebank are in high demand, partly due to the fact the distillery is now closed.
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.
