Malt whisky is the ‘original’ whisky of Scotland. Malt whisky is made only from malted barley, in two (occasionally three) copper pot stills, by a batch process. ‘Single’ malt whisky is the product of an individual distillery. Read More »
A 1946 vintage Macallan, aged for 56 years (so bottled around 2002) and released as part of their Fine & Rare range of vintaged whiskies. The period immediately post-WWII is considered one of Macallan's finest, with more smokey aromas and flavours in the barley as a result of increased peat use for distillation.
Bottled in 1991 in a limited edition of just 500 bottles, this whisky came from a batch of nine casks laid down in the 1930s (one cask was laid down for each of William Grant's nine children, who had helped to build Glenfiddich distillery in the 1880s).
This is only the second ever official bottling of Glenfiddich 50 year old, and has been created from two casks (a 1955 and a 1957) married for six months before bottling. Just 500 bottles of this extraordinary whisky have been created. They are released on a strict global allocation of 50 bottles per year for the next ten years. Each bottle is decorated with Scottish silver and is housed in a hand-sewn leather box with a leather bound book and signed certificate.
A very rare 1940 vintage Macallan, this whisky was first bottled in 1977 and supply has been eked out with tiny allocations in the last few years since being introduced as part of the distillery's Fine & Rare series.
A very old vintage Macallan distilled in 1939 as WWII was breaking out in Europe and bottled at the end of the 1970s at 40 years of age. One of the earliest vintages in the distillery's prestige Fine & Rare series.
The second release of Gordon & Macphail's incredible 70 year old Glenlivet. This is the remaining whisky drawn from cask 339, filled in 1940, and bottled in a teardrop shaped crystal decanter at full cask strength of 45.95%. A slice of liquid history.
Bottled in 1978 into just sixty beautiful cut crystal decanters, the casks for Dalmore 50yo were laid down in the 1920s, and some of the spirit is reputed to have been distilled in the late 19th century. This is one of the best 50 year-old whiskies ever produced and is the personal favourite of many connoisseurs worldwide.
The jewel in the crown, this for us is the most special aged Macallan whisky ever bottled. Christmas cake style fruit with all the complexity of a classy aged malt. This Macallan is in a league of its own and proudly sits alongside the more recent Lalique range.
A marriage of two Dalmore casks filled on the same day in 1951, Selene has been bottled after nearly six decades of ageing in the darkest of the distillery's warehouses, and named after the Titan goddess of the moon. Just thirty decanters have been produced, each encased in a solid steel box inlaid with leather.
In March 2010, Gordon & Macphail released the oldest whisky in the world. Distilled at Mortlach Distillery in Dufftown on the 15th of October 1938 this unique and exceptionally rare Single Malt Scotch Whisky is bottled at natural cask strength (46.1%),
having been patiently matured for 70 years in a first fill sherry hogshead.
This eye-catching 75cl Macallan decanter caused a sensation when it was released a few years ago. The whisky itself isn't too shabby either, with some of the casks used much older than the stated fifty years. The limited allocation for each market sold out in near-record time, and was so successful that more Lalique Macallans soon joined the series, with a 55 year-old, a 57 year-old and a 60 year-old all subsequently released.
One of the first ever 50 year-old single malt whiskies ever released, however although the label states ‘Over 50 Years Old’, this Macallan 1928 was actually bottled in 1983 (making it in fact a 55 year-old).
One of the rarest single malts ever released, This famous Springbank was once in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's most expensive whisky. Just 24 bottles of this liquid treasure from the 1919 vintage were bottled at the distillery in 1970. A magnificent museum piece of whisky history.
