Bottled in 2000, this sherry-cask Macallan 1975 was, we believe, the last Macallan 25yo Anniversary Malt with a stated vintage. A lovely colour on this Macallan, produced during the distillery's golden era.
A bottle of historic 1973 vintage Longrow released for famed Italian importers Samaroli. 1973 was the first year that Longrow was distilled, Springbank's heavily peated malt. A genuine collector's item, the label has a lovely hand drawn style illustration.
One of the stupendous cask strength Longrows bottled in the 1980s by legendary Italian bottler Samaroli. These extraordinary whiskies from Longrow's first vintage sealed the reputation of Springbank's peated malt.
Bottled over a decade ago, this is a very special Signatory edition of Ben Wyvis, the single malt made at Whyte & Mackay's Invergordon distillery for a brief period between 1965 and 1976. Almost all Ben Wyvis went straight for blending so this is rare indeed. Just 84 sets were released, each with a miniature of the spirit included in the box.
A very special Bowmore from a hogshead filled on August 9th 1980, the day that Queen Elizabeth II visited the distillery. Cask #5774 was acquired by Jim Howat, then Chairman of Morrison Bowmore and was left in his will to the JTH Charitable Trust he created with his wife Christine. Designed and bottled in 2011 by Morrison Bowmore as a special limited edition for the charitable trust yielding 156 bottles at a natural strength of 46.7%.
A 1946 vintage Glenlivet from independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail, who specialise in bottling older whiskies. Distilled just after the end of the Second World War, this has been aged for 40 years before being bottled.
A very rare distillery bottling of Ben Wyvis whisky. Specially bottled for Munton and Fison and distilled using only their malt. This whisky was distilled in 1972 just a few years before the distillery was closed and dismantled.
A rare 1967 vintage whisky from Campbeltown's Springbank, one of the two distilleries in the area that survived the rigours of the 20th century. This one has aged for 27 years, picking up a beautiful copper colour, and is sure to be a hit with collectors.

An outstanding Highland Park, bottled at a remarkable 40 years old. They've done a good job on the presentation, too - extremely heavy box with proper hinges and magnetic closure, with a leather-bound booklet inside extolling the virtues of distillery and dram.
